Stayed for just the one night in May. The hotel is in an excellent position, being on the main seafront road. Literally 5 minutes walk to the beach, amusements, pier, shops etc but no rowdiness as the hotel is further along Nth Parade. Art deco style hotel, it must have been wonderful when first built, although modern now, it retains a few decorative touches from yesteryear.
Free parking is included in the price of the room, and is secure and out of the way.
There is a lift available.
The hotel was very clean and the room spacious. I had room number 36 which had views of the sea and promenade.
Double bed with bedside tables and reading lamps, large desk containing kettle/tea/coffee etc along with drawer storage. Double wardrobe with extra pillows & blankets, remote control lcd tv, hairdryer and large mirror. Bathroom was a full size bath with shower over, washbasin and loo. Complimentary soaps.
Breakfast was included in the price and consisted of a choice of cereals/ fruit & juices and then either a full english or lighter option of eggs or smoked kippers. Toast and preserves were bought to the table along with tea and/or coffee. A table is reserved ready for each room at breakfast.
The hotel seems to cater mainly for more mature customers, 2 coaches full were there at the same time as us, so although the atmosphere in the hotel was buzzing, there were no late night noises to contend with.
Lastly, if you really wanted to stay in a hotel where you were warmly welcomed by the manager then stay here. The manager Ross is a jolly scot who is fantastic in his job. Having just met us for the first time ever when checking in,and having a full hotel, he remembered our names the next morning when greeting us at breakfast. Marvellous man doing a marvellous job.
We would certainly return here without hesitation.
