For some reason, i was expecting this to be a pub that offered accommodation - but it wasnt. It is definitely a hotel - and a pretty good one at that!
We had booked a room with a sea view, and this was what we got. The room was nicely appointed, with a comfy double bed, nice bedding, a wardrobe, chest of drawers, desk, and bedside tables. The bathroom was a bit small, (shower over bath) but was well finished. My only disappointment would be that the windows for the sea view were quite small. The room was partly in the eaves of a "dormer" and so there wasnt much space for a window. Next time i will stay in one of the "Deluxe" rooms with a sea view as these have a full aspect onto the sea. Having said that though, the room was really comfy, nicely decorated and quiet.
Breakfast was a great selection of cereal, fresh fruit, and then various items cooked to order. There was the usual "Full English" but this was complemented by Eggs benedict, eggs florentine, poached haddock and kippers. I had the eggs benedict both days and they were perfect!!
The bar area is mainly used by residents - probably as the prices are that of a hotel and not a pub - but it still had a good atmosphere. It was very comfortable to be in at the end of a day.
We didnt eat there, but the food looked really good.
There is car parking at the front and rear, and street parking was easy too.
All the staff were very friendly, and willing to help.
The hotel is about a 10min walk into town, but its a nice walk along the sea front and past the harbour where there are opportunities to eat and drink.
A really good place to stay
