Reviewed 26 May 2014

The staff are excellent at this hotel, reception, bar and cleaners. The breakfast was brilliant, decorated to a high standard but the noise from the other rooms either side of us was loud, could hear the extractor fan going, the shower. the television and people talking. For money we paid this did spoil our stay because we didn't sleep well. Did have a massage which was lovely. But this hotel is very good.

I love, love, love this place and cannot rate it highly enough. I have only ever been to use the spa so cannot comment on the rooms but the friendly and polite staff are beyond superb. They are so welcoming and will always do their best to accommodate any request.
This is my third time here in the last two years and the whole lobby, restaurant and spa area's have been refurbished and look amazing.
We always have a massage and there was a new masseuse (sorry, she didn't tell us her name) but once again the massage was faultless and I came away feeling totally relaxed. All the spa facilities are excellent and the changing facilities are spot on. The cleanliness is also top notch.
I'm already looking forward to my next visit.....

Stayed one night with my husband. On arrival we we able to park easily and the booking in was very efficient. Our room was quite small and had a view (if you can call it that) out to an emergency stairway in the middle of the hotel so was quite dark. However it was clean and had tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryer, and soap and shampoo in the bathroom. One criticism was the room was very hot and we found it difficult to get any air circulated via the window due to the lack of outside space. The leisure facilities were very good and we had a swim in the lovely pool, although the spa jacuzzi wasn't working properly as there we no bubbles! The breakfast was excellent with a good choice of cereals, fruit, yogurts, pastries, cooked English breakfast, even kippers, fruit juice, tea and coffee. The service throughout was also excellent. It was very central being a short stroll to the seafront and the town centre. All in all the facilities and the service make this a four star hotel - the room could have been better.

Delighted you enjoyed your stay despite the small room. As a C19th hotel all our rooms are so different both in size and in shape which in some ways can be quite attractive - the next time you intend to visit please drop me a line and I will make sure you get to stay in one of our larger rooms.
Many thanks fro your delightful review and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

A friend and I stayed here on the 15th May whilst attending an event at the BIC. From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful and friendly and nothing was enough trouble for them. The room was lovely and overlooked the gardens. The breakfast was excellent. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely be back, next time wil use the Spa which sadly we didnt have time to do on this occasion

The hotel has a pleasing exterior, with friendly welcoming staff. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The bar is well staffed and welcoming. The breakfast was fine (last me all day!) The parking bays are a little tight! Otherwise I can recommend this hotel
