the hotel is a huge lovely old red brick building. The room was fairly small, which we weren't surprised at as we stayed at cut price with a travel voucher, but was nicely decorated and was very clean. There was plenty of lighting too - usually hotel rooms are very dingy with too few lights. The bed wasn't all that comfortable but when are they? There was plenty of storage space and a couple of chairs in the room so you didn't only have the bed to sit on. Nice (working) television, kettle with tea, coffee and shortbread biscuits and hair dryer. The room felt welcoming and was nice to sit in.
Really lovely bathroom with bath & shower plus plenty of towels and toiletries - also a shelf to put your own stuff on, and a heated towel rail. All the fittings looked new in the bathroom.
Exceptionally polite staff on reception and in restaurant. We only used the restaurant for breakfast, which was adequate. Some days it is a buffet which is a bit limited but good variety on the days when you choose from the breakfast menu. the restaurant staff were also very polite and helpful.
Didn't use the bar so can't comment.
Good location for walking along the 'front' and about a 10 minute walk into the town where there are plenty of shops and eating places. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend it.
