This was my second stay at this hotel, so I knew what to expect and my expectations were lived up to. It is a very clean, efficiently run hotel, in a great spot near to the beach and the town... and also the theatres if that's your thing. I visited with my Mum and my 4 year old. We were not disappointed. The room, a triple, was a good size for 3 people, with a separate dressing area and a massive bathroom. The shower and bath were both in great working order, the room furnishings were funky and modern - and I glimpsed inside a suite that was to an even higher standard - very impressive. Even though it's modern, the outside of the hotel is in keeping with the style of the seaside. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly, with no exception. There is a games room, a bar and a breakfast room, all again of a good standard. I haven't scored it 'excellent' due to the fact that the standard of the mattresses on this stay were not brilliant - my Mum's and my son's were ok, maybe a little lumpy... but I had to ask for mine to be changed due to the springs having given way all down the centre and the ones that were left were poking through and very uncomfortable. Having said that, I still managed to get 2 good night's sleep before I asked for it to be changed. Make sure you check your mattress out well before you sleep on it! The replacement was quick and a satisfactory standard. The breakfasts were included in the room price - cold/continental buffet, again to a good standard. I did have a hot breakfast which was £3.50 extra. Although the breakfast was impressively large for the price I didn't enjoy it but it might just be my taste. Be warned that you might have to wait for bar food/drink as the bar is attended to, in the day at least, by the member of staff on reception.
