I arrived and was checked in by the very welcoming Ed. I had booked a single room B&B and on arriving to my room (203) I got the lovely surprise that my room not only had a double bed but a partial sea view. The room was nicely decorated and very clean, with a huge flat screen tv, tea & coffee facilities, a trouser press and an iron, one of my biggest gripes about hotels is the lack of electric sockets especially by the bed, no complaints here as there were several double sockets around the room including near the bed!!!!
The bathroom was clean and well stocked with toiletries, my only gripe here was the shower head was covered in what looked like green limescale and didn't look very appealing, I stuck to having a bath!!!
The bed was a little hard for my liking (personal opinion) and I found it quite hard to get to sleep with all the noise from drinkers coming up from the pubs at the bottom of the road.
Breakfast is served in the light and airy dining room, there is a good choice of fruit, yoghurt, juices, cereals then a buffet style cooked breakfast. Two points here, you're asked as you come into the dining room whether you would like tea or coffee, when you choose the waitress takes a flask and places it on your table, now I like my tea made fresh and wasn't really impressed with this method, secondly you have to prepare your own toast on one of those roller toasters, not a problem generally but this machine only did one side of your toast at any one time so you had to put it through twice, and there were no tongs to handle the bread into the toaster.
Overall an enjoyable stay, it's just the small things that need a bit more attention to detail. :o)
