We just love this hotel - comfort, relaxation, excellent service and helpful, pleasant staff for whom nothing is too much trouble.
From the moment we arrived, they couldn't have been more helpful. They parked the car, helped me in (I'm disabled) and made sure that we were well looked after! Lunch was delicious in the Garden Restaurant with a pleasant table near a window. The head waiter was kind offering useful advice as was the sommelier with his knowledge of the available wines, along with interesting pieces of information regarding some champagnes. It was my birthday and they pampered me, even making my pudding special with birthday wishes on the plate! A fun yet nice touch.
The lounges are comfortable although some parts can seem a little dark compared to the brightness of the large sunny lounge at the front. The swimming pool is fun and the tables set about it make the holiday atmosphere complete.
The position on the sea front parade is excellent and easily accessible. There is a feeling of delightful elegance of years gone by which makes for a happy break from a busy life in London. It's easy and very quick to reach from London which has to be a plus point. There's much on offer to entertain people from the opera at Glyndebourne to Air Display weekends!
We were sorry to leave...
Will we go back? You bet!
