We stayed here for 2 nights on a dinner bed and breakfast basis to visit friends in the area. We had a sea view room overlooking the promenade which was spotlessly clean, although the bathroom was a little dated. We had a balcony (albeit it rather small) which was lovely to sit on. The staff in this hotel are excellent, welcoming, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food was excellent and there was a good choice in the evening menu, The situation is perfect for the town and beach and although we were allocated a parking space in the hotel car park, we did not need it as we were lucky and managed to park right outside the hotel, where it is unlimited parking. The only gripe is in relation to seating in the restaurant. Guests were obviously allocated tables before arrival and although we were quite happy with ours which did have a sea view, we noticed that several elderly guests needing walkers/frames were placed in tables inappropriate for their needs (i.e. right through the restaurant where it was difficult for them to access due to tables being very closed to each other. I think there should be more flexibility for table allocation to assess guests in person and to their needs. However, we will be returning again soon as this is a great place to stay.
