Hotel in ideal location overlooking promenade. Clean and comfy Victorian built hotel with good sized bedrooms en suite. Wonderful bathroom shower,lovely dining room and plenty of lounge space. Staff were always very pleasant and helpful. In house entertainment ok although it was a little biased towards Country & Western on the 2 evenings it was provided! There is a lift - otherwise quite a few steps to climb; but the meals do need walking off as the choice of menu and quality of food is excellent!! Only one quibble.....why, oh, why do they not review their 'system' of service in the dining room? - it would be ok for a dinner party but not for over a hundred guests all sitting down to eat simultaneously! It was chaotic most mornings/evenings and the staff were clearly worked far too hard unnecessarily. It was also difficult to go out for events that began at 7.30pm without missing some of the meal, as the dessert course /coffee was yet to be served ...and all this from a 6pm dinner time. (Hope this helps and doesn't sound unkind) but it does need sorting!! A good stay nevertheless - and would definitely use again.
