We had looked at the website several times and finally managed to get there. The receptionist was lovely, as were all staff. The bedroom was comfortable but the bathroom in room 18 is very tired. The cost is the main grumble, the £230 per night we knew about but £10 extra for a full English breakfast! Continental breakfast was fine, though I prefer a selection of fresh fruit to be prepared rather than peel your own orange or apple! The prune and apricot compôte was nice though. Our evening meal was mainly good, puddings delicious. There were several errors on the bills, but corrected on being pointed out. So check carefully before signing...
So a pleasant stay, but not such a treat as we expected.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to our coastal restaurant with rooms, across the road from the dunes of Camber Sands and beautiful sandy beach beyond. Inspired by the coastal motels you might find in California, we're a calm and relaxing hideaway from the stresses and strains of modern life. We have 20 amazing bedrooms all decorated with an eye to the Hamptons and serve great food using almost exclusively locally sourced fresh ingredients. In 2016 we were included in The Times 'Coolest Beach Hotels - No. 4', The Mirror's 'Top 10 Seaside Hotels in the UK' and Squaremeal's 'UK's Best 100 Restaurants'. The private coastal garden incorporates mini secluded decks behind all the Garden and Luxury Garden rooms and is also home to The Beach Hut, where guests can enjoy relaxing massages and lovely facials after a day on the beach using ethical and natural health and beauty products that are exclusively blended in the UK. ... more less
