On arrival at Christine's we were made to feel most welcome. We parked right next to the hotel - free, paid for our stay (£50 & £75 for double & triple room) and then we were assisted to our rooms and 24hour door key system was explained the for outer doors and room so we could come and go as we pleased. Very secure. Christine and her friend were lovely and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble.
One of our rooms was a double bed en suite with bath and shower, the other a triple room which consisted of double and a single bed with en suite shower room. On 1st floor, both spotless, light, fresh bedding, towels, complimentary tea/coffee facilities, big mirror to put makeup on, clothing rail and drawers etc to put all our stuff. You could not fault it.
The location was amazing...so close for town centre and shops. We had booked in to go to Funny Girls for our friend's birthday and this hotel was virtually next door - 1minute walk tops which was ideal in our heels!
We returned around 1am in morning and had no trouble getting to sleep despite it being close to all the bars etc. The hotel wasn't rowdy.
In the morning, checked the showers out (good) and then breakfast was at 930 so we had chance to lie in. Good full english breakfast was served plus toast and tea/coffee/juice all inclusive of room price. The lounge has comfy leather sofas to relax on and there was a bar/cafe to purchase drinks but it was nice weather so we sat out on the seated area on lovely decking at the front chatting to Christine.
It is advertised as a predominantly lesbian hotel however all five in our party were straight (2 mums and daughters 20-50yrs in age) and at breakfast there seemed to be a mix of straight couples and gay couples so I would not let this statement put you off if you are small minded and think its going to be in your face camp, flags and bra burning - it is just in an ideal location for town/the gay friendly scene - all welcome.
We would all definately recommend this hotel and will definately be going back in the future. Thank you to Christine and her friend (Rose?) for making us feel at home. x
