The welcome was cool, the bedroom design meant we could clearly hear the people in adjacent rooms using their tiny ensuite toilets or showers and making conversation (or more). The basin didn't fit in the ensuite - that's in the room. First floor rooms clearly hear the entertainment from the cafe/ restaurant downstairs. Sea view rooms also enjoy smoking and conversation from diners outside. No ventilation in the tiny shower cubicle unless you leave the light on, remember to turn sideways to get dry and leave the shower door open or there's not enough room. The towels smelt of mildew and were only to be changed once during a week's stay, the linen didn't get changed at all and the pink nylon blanket was out of the 70's. Full English breakfast meant only 4 items, not sausage, bacon, egg, beans and tomato for example - that was too much. No choice of table, you sit where you're put not where you want. Same sad cakes open on display in the dining room for 7 days - even the flies found them too dry! The window boxes are lovely in all the photos and in reality, but do expect a member of staff to turn up in your room at any time to water them daily.
On the plus side, the view was fantastic and very welcoming, drawing us out into fresh air and away from the confines of "Bon Viveur"
