My partner and I arrived tuesday afternoon on a lovely day and had no problem parking. We were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our room right away. Lovely bright room with everything you need. Very warm at night, comfortable sleep and had en-suite with a hot shower. The floor of our room was rather squeaky, which didn't bother us as such, but did cause us to concern about those around or underneath us. (There wasn't a view from our room as we faced the carpark, but we didn't go there to go gazing out the window, so we weren't fazed by this at all.)
Although above a pub, it did shut by 11pm, so no problem with any noise. In the morning we had a choice of breakfast which was included in the price of our room, we chose to go for the full english and was not disappointed. Very delicious. Had it with a very well made cup of tea too :)
We were thanked upon leaving and given a very friendly farewell.
For us it was everything we needed. A comfortable nights sleep and friendly service with good food. Will definitely stay again.
Location was great too, only a 20 minute bus journey to the sea front. Bus stop was across the road from the pub too which was rather handy.
