Stayed here for one night - a break from work - and as mentioned by other reviewers, the hotel would benefit from a makeover, particularly to take advantage of the many good things about it. We had a room facing the back. It was large but a badly used space! There was a spiral staircase down to the wardrobes which could have been a lovely area for a sofa, the TV or even a desk. Having to carry your clothes down the stairs to hang them up is crazy so we just draped everything on the sofa! Unfortunately the window in the downstairs area was missing half the curtain which let in a lot of light. The mattress was very soft so neither of us slept well but it was a big bed so if you like soft mattresses, it could be perfect! The best thing about the hotel is the view of the sea from the restaurant and bar. I could sit for hours in the room leading to the restaurant gazing out at the sea through the large curved window. I had a nice glass of wine too :-) Dinner was good and pretty good value at at around £22 for a 3 course meal. The home made pea soup was delicious and I had a really good quality steak too. Having a table by the window looking out to sea was a huge bonus. I enjoyed breakfast too once again with a great view of the sea :-) This hotel could be excellent with the help of a good designer to take advantage of the assets.
