Ok the bedrooms in this hotel are a little tired and need updating but if you want a good value hotel that is a short walk from the beach and town then you could do a lot worse than the Wessex. The bedrooms are clean and spacious and the staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is lovely and warm and the indoor pool is one depth (4 feet) all over which means you don't get out of your depth if you are not a confident swimmer like me. Breakfast was hot and plentiful in pleasant surroundings and for evening meals there were deals in the main restaurant that made it affordable which makes a change from a lot of hotels. On the lower ground floor next to the pool area is an Italian restaurant which serves good food at reasonable prices. Only downside was the hard uncomfortable pillows! They really need to invest in some new softer pillows! Other than that I can't fault it and would definitely stay here again (but would bring my own pillow!)
