I stayed at the Regent Hotel with a group of friends in June. The hotel has a lot of character as it is an older building and, along with that, a few of the fittings do look tired. However, we found the great location (right by the waterfront, with great views) and helpful staff more than made up for that.
The manager was kind enough to book us tee times at the local golf course and a boat trip with local guide for the evening and the staff were happy to recommend local places to eat and drink.
The full breakfast was hearty and good fuel for the day ahead and the rooms suited us just fine as a base. The countryside is so beautiful around here you will want to spend the days exploring it.
If you are looking for a central base for a good price, you could do a lot worse than The Regent.
