Stayed one night after Christmas. Had a double & twin rooms. Was upgraded to a sea view, without asking - very impressive!
On arrival reception efficient but could have been a little more welcoming.
Boutique is probably a disguise for a traditional decor! However, hotel is in very good order and very clean. Bedrooms are a reasonable size and have all the facilities - tv; tea/coffee making, with nescafe & quality tea bags. Beds & pillows very comfortable.
Bathrooms a little small, but they were certainly no smaller than some of the budget hotels! Facilities in good order and clean, although the showers lacked power.
Public rooms spacious of traditional style [1980's] but all in good order. Lounge bar overlooks the sea.
Breakfast, again, welcome could have been more outgoing - I had to say "hello" first! That aside, the staff were efficient and the quality of breakfast very good. Buffet style, full English, with a good choice. Food quality excellent.
This is an old building, so it will be quirky and floor boards will creak, but it has character, it is well run and offers good value. Will certainly return and a pleasent change from standard chain hotels.
