We stayed here for a couple of nights in August. Location is good right next to Meadfoot Beach. The staff were friendly but service standards weren't great. Various breakfast options, including cooked, were fine but of really basic quality. The room itself was cosy (as described) but in need of some updating and DIY. Bed was creaky and we could hear other guests through the walls and in the halls. The window was filthy and the sea view was actually of the (perfectly nice) garden with only a glimpse of the sea through the trees. Communal lounge was nice enough but decor in other areas was showing its age. The communal toilets downstairs are desperately in need of a total refurb. Not a bad place but hard to recommend.
