Booked last minute as we fancied a couple of days away by the sea, on booking in was asked if I had a car, as I would need a display card to park outside the hotel. Once checked in we were shown to our room by the owners who were informative about things in the local area whilst being very friendly, we were told if there was anything else we needed help with then they would be happy to assist and you could tell that they really mean't it. We were booked into room five which is at the front of the property, the proportions of the room were lovely, it was nicely decorated, light, and bright with a large bay window and some really nice original features. This room had both a double and single bed as well as another bed which could be set up to make it into a family room for 4 people. The facilities in the room included an ensuite with shower, TV plenty of storage space and good quality hot drinks making facilities. There were nice touches in the room such as fresh milk to have with your hot drinks and large bottles of Bayliss & Harding toiletries in the bathroom so you didn't need to skimp on the shower gel. Eventhough we were at the front of the hotel it was lovely and quiet and we had a very restful nights sleep which was aided by the nice quality bedding and pillows.
Breakfast was well presented & freshly prepared, there was a choice of cerals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, toast and of course the good old full english breakfast. Once you were seated in the dining room you could choose what you would like, all hot food was then prepared in the adjecent kitchen and despatched through a rather nifty serving hatch to your table, even the jams and butter were feshly served at the table - no naff individual plastic portions here!!
We also had an evening meal in house on one of the evenings we were there the menu provided a variety of good homemade locally produced fayre with something for everyone all at a very reasonable price, the inhouse bar also mean't that we could enjoy a nice glass of wine to go with the meal. We both had the individual steak and ale pudding which was lovely.
The area was nice and quiet, easy to get to the town centre and the sea front , and easy to find.This hotel provides you will a combination of the surroundings of a traditional victorian villa with those extra touches to make our stay more comfortable, it may not have all the modern touches that you would get in one of the faceless big chain hotels but the proprietors made you feel so welcome that I would definately choose to stay here again. Excellent value for money.
