I travelled with Shearings coach tours for a weekend break at this hotel. We were booked in quickly and efficiently by the cheerful reception staff. As I was booked into a single room and had noticed that the garden rooms had a nice view I asked if I could be upgraded into one of them and this was done quickly and with no quibbles. It was also refreshing to note that all single guests were asked if they would like to share a table or dine alone, although I chose to share as it is a good way to make new friends.
My room (305) was small but clean with a small balcony that looked out over the hotel gardens and the sea. It had a flat screen t.v. with a good choice of freeview channels and radio. The shower was very small but worked perfectly and the towels were white and fluffy. There was also a hospitality tray with tea, coffee and biscuits. There had been a problem with the heating but this was quickly resolved.
The meals are of a good standard with plenty of choice to suit everyone but you could also choose items from the a la carte menu with an allowance against the price.The lounges were very comfortable and it was nice to chill out and read the Sunday papers with the sun streaming through the large windows. We were very lucky with the weather and although it was raining and very windy when we arrived on Friday I woke to a view of the sun on the sea on Saturday and our free day on Sunday in the resort was made very pleasant by the appearance of the sun once more. The hotel is in a very good position on the West Cliff promenade and also within easy reach of the many shops and restaurants.
I would certainly use this coach company and hotel again. I couldn't fault the staff who were all impressively efficient and cheerful. The only tiny gripe was the piano in the dining room right next to our table which became a little wearing by the time the meal had finished but that still wouldn't deter me from returning.
