Although the outside looks a little tired inside you will receive a true warm welcome and find a scrupulously clean hotel - you smell the freshness as soon as you enter and not a speck of dust to be found. Some may think the decor dated but it is classic hotel as they used to be and all beautifully maintained.
We travelled with our Jack Russell dog who was welcomed to sit in the bar and lounge which was a very pleasant surprise - normally he is restricted to the bedroom which encouraged us to spend more money - good move.
The lift is 'quaint' but it gets you to your floor safely. We asked for a sea view and you could not ask for a better one - we even had blue sky (in February too). The room was of good size with plenty of space for clothes and cases, a really comfy bed with pillows (2 each) which were supportive but cosy and the thickly lined curtains ensured the morning light did not disturb our excellent sleep.
We had some sandwiches on the first night after our show and although the selection was limited what we were presented with were freshly made, well presented, tasty platter of sandwiches - each!
All the food was excellent and following a hearty breakfast we decided to eat there in the evening, although some of the dishes were slightly unusual (prawns in a sauce in a choux boat) they were all well good using quality ingredients - compliments to the chef. And what a pleasure to find food served on hot plates, silverware which was not just clean but polished with pride. And the service is professional, fast, friendly - fabulous!
This is how hotels used to be, providing quality service, food with pride whilst offering value for money. Long may you all continue - we will be back.
