We stayed here with a bunch of friends all attending the same wedding. The hotel (B&B) has around 20 rooms of varying sizes and quality. Our friends booked the standard double rooms which I believe were £80 a night and - because I booked late - had to book a superior double room for £10 a night more.
This proved to be a very smart move - the room (no. 20) was double the size of the others and had a dedicated bathroom with shower, toilet, sink and bath generously spaced out. All rooms were clean and the hotel staff were very polite, if a bit thin on the ground from time-to-time - expect a short delay at reception, because they may be off tending to the bar or restaurant area.
The hotel is based right on the A12, but noise was never a problem with the double-glazing. The bed was firm but comfortable and the shower so strong it wasn't far off an acid skin peel, which works for me but some may find uncomfortable. My friends told me their showers were adequate, but it sounds like this one gets the lion's share of the water pressure!
Breakfast was surprisingly early - 08:00 to 09:30 - on a weekend, but we made both days and it's a good quality breakfast (included in the price).
I'd happily stay here again, it's very reasonably-priced and of a good standard. Complaints? Well, the floorboards are a bit creaky which might annoy someone below, but we were above the restaurant. The decor isn't ultra-modern, but they do have some nice art on the walls.
Have the bargain stay if you must, but otherwise I'd recommend you pay just a little more for a very generous room.
