Great location, close to The Hoe and just a very short walk to the harbour area. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the hotel is obviously old but well kept. I thought the dining room staff at breakfast were extremely unhelpful. They were very busy and really couldn't cope with the amount of guests and came across very frazzled and at times rude. Our bedroom was tiny, cramped, no telephone to receive calls and the beds were very uncomfortable (a bit like sleeping on an ironing board). Shower/ bath had no pressure and worked intermittently (while washing hair had to rinse in small basin as water in shower switched off). Hence only one of us could shower in the morning and one at night. Definitely not good value in my opinion. We stayed in for dinner one night and paid 49 pounds for 2 bowls of vegetable soup, 1 small sirloin steak and mash & 1 fish and chips, no drinks ( thought this was a bit expensive for what we got). I booked this hotel based on the good reviews that were given and that it had recently been refurbished (only saw now that the dates on all the reviews were 2008!) and our room clearly was not one of the refurbished rooms.
