“A seaside Hotel”
Reviewed 30 June 2008

We stayed one night in this hotel, the initial impression was not good as the receptionist was busy elsewhere and only spent the minimum amount of time checking us in. The room was acceptable, clean with a small television, the shower was slow but hot and the bed was two singles pushed together, its also a fair walk to the town centre, the address is somewhat misleading "Middle of the Esplanade" implies close to the town!
The next day we had breakfast, it was the standard pre cooked buffet type affair, but what really shone through was the staff, very friendly, easily understood and polite, So overall, its not a 4* city centre hotel, but it is fit for purpose and I would return.
