This is a hotel that sees itself as premier class but little things let it down. Our room was large, comfortable and had a superb view out to the downs. A standard room presumably because of the small bathroom (shower only). Fine but a fixed shower head (so for my wife trickier to avoid her hair getting wet), no tooth mugs and they could have fitted an extra shelf somewhere. We'd asked for an early check in and the room was clearly not ready (we got it 15 minutes later) and, to be fair, they did not charge us the extra for early check in. The staff are friendly enough (though calling seniors "folks" or was it "chaps" not quite the right touch), the breakfast is good (though can take a bit of time). The bar is not really welcoming and the choice of music is awful. Needless to say we couldn't get a room for the third night as they had wedding parties (two) and there isn't a comfortable lounge. Overall four plus stars.
