I booked a mon to friday break with shearings on 28th June and I have no real complaints I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble. People must remember that this hotel was built in 1840 so without a doubt has some sort of preservation order on it so shearings probably couldn't upgrade the lift or put in double glazing even if they wanted to. The toilets down stairs had recently been refurbished as had the concert room so no complaints there. On the minus side there is no heated swimming pool and the wifi connection isn't good but if you can live without them then you should have a great break there unless your one of these people who like to have a moan about anything. Oh and be warned that the seagulls never shut up 24 hours a day but I suppose this is a sea side thing hehehe .
