This was a last minute find, split decision late on a Friday night to enjoy the weather over the weekend. Turns out it was a brilliant choice.
The hotel is stylish, sleek, light and airy with friendly staff. Free parking was a massive bonus, this is located in the Marina carpark next door which is easily accessed by a walkway straight over to the main marina. We had a standard double with an inland view, not a problem looking at the attractive imposing white cliffs. The room was bright and airy and very white. This made it feel very clean and quite nautical. I also really liked the inclusion of the B&W iPod/iPhone dock in the room. The bathroom had a lovely large rain style shower all modern and clean. If I had one tiny thing to say, this was that the bathroom toilet had some face wipes still in the bin. I can't say this affected my stay in any way and this is really just feedback for the hotel.
Some people complained about the lack of wardrobe but there's a rail with several hangers so I'm not sure why this seems to be such an issue. I was only staying for one night so I didn't even give the hangers a second look. There's also a hairdryer, toiletries and several towels available so I felt very well catered for.
The hotel location is in the Marina amongst the restaurants with an Asda, bowling and cinema within a few minutes walk. If you're looking to be right by the pier this is a bit of a walk and I would recommend something a bit closer. Again I wasn't fussed as it's very pretty overlooking the Marina, the free parking was a major bonus and the stroll up to the pier in the sunshine was lovely.
Breakfast was also included with a full continental spread set out for you to help yourself. You could also order a full English picking your sausage and the style of eggs. This was all included in the room rate. Due to the good weather, this was served out on the balcony overlooking the Marina. Very pretty. Mention should also go to the bar in the hotel. There's a huge selection of drinks available and the bar staff were so helpful and willing, educating us in the wonderful world of spirits.
