Hotel room was acceptable but decor out of date, shower was just a mixer from bath taps but bathroom was ok, overall hotel was ok but pricey for what it was. Staff friendly and breakfast was ok, would I stay here again? Probably not for the price, prefer a premier inn but they were fully booked. We were also one of the youngest staying and I'm on my 40's!

You could not fault the staff - very friendly and helpful. Very good meals. Top floor room had great view. Double room was small but adequately appointed - but note that free wifi does not reach top floor.

Lots of pluses but a few minuses.
A) Street parking all but impossible. we reserved space in garage (2 minutes walk), but we had to double park on arrival and nobody on hand to help with luggage
B) Mattress was lumpy; staff tried, and failed, to find us another one but did try to help by turning it

Room Tip: Go for top floor sea view room, but not if you need wifi access.

Friendly and helpful staff made this a pleasant weekend escape. Rooms clean and comfortable, though basic, there is everything you need. The tea making stuff is hidden in the dressing table drawers. Finding a single room at a reasonable rate over the Bank Holiday was a plus.

Breakfasts generous with something for everyone. You don't get smoked salmon and scrambled eggs most places these days.

Room Tip: Seafront rooms have the view, but also a brightly lit small fairground just outside. So its swings...

Four of us have just enjoyed a fantastic meal in Duke's Restaurant,incredible value and superb service. Wines inexpensive and high quality. The menu choices were good and extremely well cooked and presented. Plenty of it - sadly we couldn't manage a dessert! A huge THANK YOU - we will be back!

Our recent stay at the Hotel Rex was as good as ever. Nothing is ever too much trouble, and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. We have been staying there nearly every year for the past 18 years and will continue to do so. The food is well cooked and presented - portion sizes are excellent! The location of the hotel is perfect - beach, harbour and shops all only a very short walk away.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms are perfect for sitting out during the morning sun
