I was in the Theatre group who went with Michael (see his review) to this wonderful three star hotel which is run by a husband and wife team (Nick & Sue). I totally agree with Michael's comments; the staff, rooms and food were excellent and everyone's needs were catered for - even gluten free bread and gravy for me! There is a little park opposite the hotel with plenty of seats and the vehicular railway, down to the beach is just 5 minutes away (if that); there is an hourly bus service into town from outside the hotel or a short walk up the road to a more frequent service. Yes, the hotel is old and as such one should not expect to find the most modern décor as it would not be in keeping with the age of the building. I am appalled at the comments made in some reviews as they are not at all as we found the hotel.
