Our stay, like many others who have reviewed this hotel, was booked through Travelzoo and there is no doubt that it was an excellent deal (£129 for two nights bed and breakfast with dinner on the first night). However, whilst the actual building is an older, traditional style, with high ceilings and some original features, I would describe the hotel as uninspiring with a somewhat faded feel to it. There was definitely an air of old fashioned seaside hotel about the place. That said, it is reasonably well kept, peaceful, centrally located and has its own small parking area. We found the staff to be very helpful and our room was large, sufficiently comfortable and had a well stocked hospitality tray.
For us, though, this deal scored because of the food which was truly excellent. We enjoyed a superb dinner on the first night which we ordered from the main menu and which would have cost in the region of £60 for the two of us, had we ordered from the menu and not been on the Travelzoo deal. The breakfast on both mornings was also of a very high standard, tasty and with the hot food being freshly cooked to order. In some respects, though, I felt that the skills of the kitchen were not matched by the slightly worn and tired looking appearance of the hotel. Overall, though, we had no complaints and enjoyed a pleasant two night stay.
