As a group of three couples, we booked for a Saturday stay at this charming establishment. I and my partner arrived first and were met by the delightful proprietor who ensured that we parked in the reasonably-priced secure underground car park. He then assisted with cases before offering complimentary refreshments in the dining room, ably assisted by Dusty the schnauzer who was most friendly.
Our room on the first floor was excellent and furnished in a modern style. Among its facilities were flat-screen TV, DVD player, DAB radio, tea and coffee, mineral water and most unusually, face cloths and sumptuous bathrobes. There was a very large shower in an open-plan bathroom. Lighting comprised modern recessed lamps along with more traditional bedside lamps. The bed and bedding seemed to be of very high quality. The overall effect was of a high-end hotel.
Overnight the premises, although fully-occupied, were very quiet with only a little road noise; but then we did have the window open. We slept well on the firm and comfortable king sized mattress.
The following morning the six of us rocked up for breakfast which had a tremendous choice of foods. We had the traditional English which was excellent and was accompanied with endless cafetiere coffee, tea and toast. Sunday papers were provided.
This place is of the highest quality. The accommodation is first rate, the owner is charming and helpful, the food is excellent and plentiful and the sea and town centre are a very short walk away. In short, I don’t think that you are likely to do better in the area. What are you waiting for?
