This is a very well situated hotel that is clearly a labour of love for the friendly owners.
I stayed in a single room that was still spacious and had a comfortable bed. There was an en suite bathroom that, along with the toilet, was shower only but that is perfectly acceptable to me. Tea and coffee were provided in the room.
Breakfast started at a sociable hour, and is cooked to order. I was offered a full English breakfast but opted to choose individual items instead. This was no problem at all and was cooked very nicely. There was also cereal and toast available along with an endless supply of coffee, very much needed after a late night.
The hotel is in an excellent location, and has free parking either on the street or in a car park opposite the hotel. Public transport is also easily accessible with a tram stop just around the corner on the seafront. There are a number of restaurants, fast food places and cafés nearby and the hotel itself has a licensed bar.
My only complaint is that my stay was so short. It was a pleasure to stay in this hotel and I hope to get the opportunity for a repeat stay very soon.
