Our first time at this hotel was in 1989 and we loved our stay then due to the central location/ ease of access to trains etc. A quick weekend opportunity led us back and we were not disappointed. As a general rule it is always a bit of an anxious time when you book in case the reality doesn't quite reach the memory however on this occasion this was not the case. Our room was functional and very clean. We had a sea view from the 5th floor, in retrospect a balcony would have been useful as a place to sit in the Autumn sunshine as the garden furniture had been removed and one disappointment was the loss of services in the garden- however, the weather was a little variable at times, given the season so this was in part understandable. The buffet breakfast was of excellent quality if not a little too predictable. A lovely airy breakfast room, clean tables and rapid service. We stayed in for dinner once and whilst my husband's meal was excellent there was a problem with mine, which was swiftly and appropriately remedied to my complete satisfaction. The bar areas were pleasant and the price list was reasonable and certainly not exploitative as in some hotel facilities. The free use of a computer, printer and wifi was much appreciated and a great touch.
Overall our impression was of a hotel trying very hard to offer an excellent experience to all of their guests and we appreciated this attitude very much. There was nothing jarring and certainly nothing for us to have any major complaint about. I hope it is not 24 years before we go back....
