Stayed here twice and enjoyed it very much. Perfect location. Right on the doorstep of everything on Marine Parade. Arcades, Pleasure Beach, cinema, cafes and restaurants and so much more. Parking all around and on side streets. Staff friendly and helpful. WiFi available. Rooms lovely, clean and tidy with everything you need. Would always come back. Great value too!
