We stayed one night at the RNLI college. We requested a cot for our 18 month old, and there was a great clean travel cot waiting for us in the room. I was concerned that there may have been lots of noise to wake our toddler up during the night, but there wasn't. The room was comfortable, very clean, and most importantly for us, toddler safe - we only had to lift up the toilet brush in the bathroom to stop him playing with it. There were not any other wires or obvious plug sockets for him to get hold of. View out of the room was great over the harbour, which provided good entertainment when required. Restaurant did a good cooked breakfast, a highchair was produced on request and it was of good quality and clean. Staff were all friendly and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Watch out for the gift shop though - I ended up buying three toys and having to drag my boy away from the remote controlled RNLI land rover! The only reason that I don't give our stay 5 stars is because I could not figure out how to turn on any kind of aircon at night, and it was a very hot night. Couldn't open the windows because the seagulls were loud and I didn't want our toddler waking up.
