We stayed in Yorkshire for a wedding and the accommodation was arranged by the happy couple so we arrived at the hotel not really knowing what to expect. It resembles many old Victorian seaside hotels on the outside and indeed the reception and public rooms downstairs take you back to the days of draylon furniture, flock wallpaper and brightly patterned carpets. Don't be deceived however, the rooms are excellent, clearly recently refurbished, my bathroom (Rm 101...) was clearly newly refitted, a comfy bed and aside from the noise of the seagulls a perfect nights sleep. Don't stop there however, the hotel has a small swimming pool in the basement which was clean, warm enough and empty in the morning for a bit of exercise. The staff were always friendly and helpful and the night bar man an all around good guy. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would recommend this to friends as a good value, comfortable and friendly place to stay. One minor improvement could be made to the breakfast arrangements where they insist on serving you everything from orange juice to muesli but hey, they do it with a smile and good grace so who cares!
