We booked two of the best rooms in the hotel with four poster beds, for two nights, when we attended a family wedding in Great Crosby. The rooms are on the small size but this didn't represent a problem to us. The beds are comfortable, bathrooms are compact and sleep quality is certainly good in the rooms at the back of the hotel. If you have a sea-facing front room you may have to wait until midnight for some peace and quiet if there is a function in the hotel. Or you could join the party.
I think one of the ways you can judge a hotel is the way staff respond when errors are made. In our case when the wrong meal was delivered when we dined in the restaurant. The waitress was very apologetic and quickly took the meal away. In a short time the correct order was delivered with profuse apologies. The meals themselves were very good value for the money. Breakfasts are very tasty and of a good quality.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. I get the impression that a big effort is being made by everybody to improve the hotel's standing. The hotel is in an excellent position facing the sea. There is also ample parking.
I understand that a refurbishment programme is being undertaken. The introduction of room fridges would be a welcome addition
Overall a good stay.
