Stayed for the weekend on 4th floor, Double 'Deluxe" room; sea facing. Beautiful victorian building; sympathetically decorated and furnished reception area with helpful and pleasant concierge.
Room smaller than expected but adequate if everything else had lived up to expectations which sadly it didn't. No biscuits; no toilet brush; no facecloth or shower cap; cheap loo roll; one pillow each that was as thin as a slice of bread; grubby carpet; gloomy corridors; burnt lampshades (where bulb touched material); pricey mini bar and very pricey room service (£10.00 to have breakfast bought up); limited TV channels; thin walls seperating rooms (we could hear next doors conversation).
On a positive note, we couldn't fault the range of food available for the self service breakfast , all delicious however, we had to ask twice for coffee and the whole seating process seemed chaotic - almost lost our seat when we went up to the buffet area. The hotel is well located for shops and beach. Not too much traffic or street noise so was able to sleep but probably would have done anyway after 7 hours shopping and a show in the evening. Having read some of these reviews, I would ask to see my allocated room next time before accepting it.
