Slightly confusing start as the hotel was not advertised as The Strand Lodge, but for above the entrance which could easily be missed, BUT...I understand the signage was in the process of being updated as we were departing the B&B so this shouldn't cause future problems. Rooms were a little on the small side but didn't cause us an issue.
We were able to attend a 007 style murder mystery night at the lodge which was really enjoyable.
Food was to a very good standard, both the evening meals and the breakfast and catered to my request for Poached eggs on toast without quabble.
Room's were clean and it would seem the en-suites have been newly refurbished to a good standard.
Lovely settings for the bar and restaurant areas with a comfortable separate lounge area.
Not a bad location from the beach front, but still a nice healthy walking distance to and from the tower, etc.
Staff we're lovely and considerate.
Would stay again!
