“A rare gem - lovely!”
Reviewed January 17, 2007

Staying in British seaside hotels is usually a surefire recipe for disaster. But this place came as a very welcome surprise. It is a rambling old pile, right on the beach, the hotel above a large ground-floor pub and restaurant.
Our room was clean, huge, newly decorated and had everything we wanted including - a rarity in the UK - a large, warm well-equipped bathroom where everything worked as it should. Staff were efficient and friendly, and the English breakfast was one of the best I have had - high-quality ingredients and far more than anyone sane could eat. The only negative side is that the hotel's adjacent car park is now owned by the council, meaning you have to pay. But it's no big deal at about £4 a day. When we received a ticket for allegedly misparking, the hotel cheerfully took it off our hands and sorted it out.
A wonderful place in one of England's secret little corners. We'll be back.

Stayed December 2006

It's a typical pub/hotel type establishment. Bit frayed about the edges, but nice enough. Certainly use it again.
