Stayed here for 3 nights on a leisure break. Overall, I thought this was a good hotel.
Location is good. On the seafront and just 5-10 mins walk from a good selection of shops theatres and restaurants.
Check-in was smooth and efficient. Staff not especially friendly but were polite and business like. Parking not a problem.
Room was a premium one with a balcony view and was spotlessly clean. Size was approx the same size and layout you would get in a Premier Inn, but the fittings are much smarter and of course you get that marvellous sea view.
Breakfast served with views out to sea was good. However there were a few minor niggles or suggestions:
The temperature in the breakfast area was set pretty cold. My wife wore a coat for the last 2 days. Not sure why it was set so cold.
A choice of yoghurts other than just plain would have been appreciated.
Be aware that the cooked breakfast is served in 2 areas, with beans, porridge and fried eggs in a separate covered area. It wasn't obvious on the first day. It would have been helpful to have had a notice or direction to that effect.
Lastly, toast is served at the start of breakfast with tea and coffee. This means it's cold if you save toast until after eating the cooked breakfast. It would have been nice to have had an option to have it served slightly later. But on the plus side you are not subjected to those awful DIY toasting machines you find elsewhere.
Overall this hotel is a good choice and I would definitely stay here again.
