First and foremost, staff here are outstanding. Encountered three on our visit, mainly the (presumed) owner, who were all conscientious, very friendly and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble! There is limited parking at the hotel itself, but car parks nearby. Tram/bus stop is Gynn Sq - 2 min walk. The room was as seen in the pictures - spacious, clean and with a great view. The en-suite doesn't encroach into the room as is commonplace in other hotels, so it was roomy. The bathroom is of a great hotel standard - modern suite and clean. Only worry for the future is a lack of tiles behind the sink, and not enough near the shower - will cut redecoration costs in the long run! Overall, this is a place nearing the end of a transition - the room and Breakfast Room/Bar were all newly decorated to a very high standard, furniture in the bedroom was very new, whereas other areas of the hotel are awaiting imminent upgrade. It is clearly a place which has finally been given a new lease of life by new owners and it shows. I would definitely recommend this place - and by Summer/Autumn 2014, it will be perfect! Don't let that stop you from visiting now though!
Location: Close to tram/bus, on the prom, great views
Food: Great portions, competitively priced, breakfast included
Room: Large, clean, newly painted, great view, new TV
