My wife and I have just returned from a 3 night break at this hotel, We say beware the four poster bed as it is built into a wooden surround which you have to climb over to get in and out of bed, and not being as young as we used to be found this virtually impossible.
The hotel has not changed in years as can be seen in places, someone described it to us as a good cheap hotel.
We only had entertainment on two nights within the hotel, Sunday night was left free, but the bar was still available.
A sea view is a must though, looking out over the harbour and up to the church and abbey.
