We arrived a the Philmar to a lovely friendly welcome from Wendy. After checking us in she explained about breakfast etc, then showed us to our room. We had room 2 and it was a lovely bright room and spotlessly clean. The bed was so comfortable it was the best night's sleep we had for a long time. There is a kettle in the room and well stocked with tea & coffee and even a biscuit to have. We pre - ordered breakfast and I have to say it didn't disappoint, there is plenty of choice, from fruit juice, cereal, yoghurt & fresh fruit, all available to have before your cooked breakfast! Tim ( the owner) does the cooked breakfast, it's fab! Also a rack of toast and selection of jams marmalades too! We will definitely visit again! We parked on the roadside at the front of the property!

Room tip: We were in room 2 which is on the front on a road, but it was quiet and didn't disturb us at all.

It was both our birthday and Anniversary weekend away with my twin sister and hubbies, had planned to go to the Embassy Theatre but the show cancelled ,, but still went ahead with the weekend any way. Tim phoned as we were travelling to ask when we would be arriving, as he was going to be out in the afternoon, so thoughtful, so we arrived in the morning and we were allowed to go into the rooms and drop the bags off and get our keys. Everything was explained to us, regarding keys and breakfast and then showed to our rooms. we asked about places to go to eat & entertainment due to us been let down by the threatre Didn't see him again until the morning, he came and talked to us about what we got up to the night before, and where we ended up. very friendly,. Breakfast was served with a smile and all very nice. Rooms nice and warm, everything in it was what you need for a weekend away, for us the bed wasn't big enough, but we sleep in a king bed , so this was always going to be different , but apart from the size of the bed , it was very comfy. Would go back . Thank you,

The owners were very welcoming. The bed was very comfy and our room was clean. You order breakfast the night before and when you go down in the morning (8-9am) you are offered a cup of tea or coffee. Room service has to be ordered the night before. It is about a 5-8 minute walk to the centre but we found this to be enjoyable. It is a ten minute drive to fantasy island and Butlins. In terms of parking it is outside on a street however it was a fairly quiet road and we had no worries. Service was definitely very good and made you feel at home.
