“Remember to pusses the button....”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Stayed here for one night over the weekend with my boyfriend and friends. Chose here after searching for place to stay just for the one night and thought it looked nice by the photographs on their website.... how wrong!They were obviously taken some years ago or had been photo shopped. After finding a parking space 2 streets away (prebooked space... haha)we walked in and we're immediately almost knocked out by the mixture of damp mustiness and cheap air freshener. The reception area was just a table in front of the window. We were asked to pay straight away and then shown up to the first room... this was on the first floor along a poorly lit corridor. A large room at the front with big bay windows stuffed with old newspaper. My boyfriend and I were then shown to the second double room; up again the creeky staircase to an even darker corridor which seemed to get narrower the further you went. The door was opened to reveal a box in comparison to the first room. There was just enough room to walk along side of bed to get to the bathroom; which consisted of shower, basin and toilet that you had to sit sideways on as to face forward you'd have to be just 2 foot tall to make sure your knee's cleared the wall. The window in the bathroom had a dirty grey net up. The TV was the size of a postage stamp with some rather amusing instructions on how to operate by pussing the button. We were told breakfast was at 9 til 10 and check out by 11. We decided to go and make the most of the beautiful but windy day and returned only briefly to change for the evening,where the boys decided the only option was to get drunk so not to care about the dodgy room and beds we were going to have to sleep on.... Breakfast was reasonable. Although the toaster took a day to give the bread a very light toasting... and that was that we went straight up and got our stuff together to get out as quick as possible!

Two buttons Green for yes and Red for no... would we stay here again?

We PUSSES the Red button!

I stayed with my girlfriend and some friends, when we were shown to the first room the girlfriend and I gambled that the other room would be better. How wrong we were. After taking the stairs to the top floor and along a corridor that seemed to get narrower the further down it we walked we were shown our room/box honestly a cat couldn't have swung a mouse round it was just bad really really bad. Oh and there's what I can only describe as the stench of death slightly masked some/lots of air fresheners. The best part of our stay there was the bit when we walked out.

stayed for one night, but luckily i did'nt book longer.
terrible to find a parking space
when you first walk in there is a musky smell then you have to walk up the stairs which has bad lights then into a dark hallway.
the room did'nt look to bad to start but then the wife used the en-suite toilet and the toilet roll holder fell off the wall and then the door handle came of in my hand, i used the kettle only to find there was no socket near the kettle so i had to put the kettle on the floor to use the socket
the breakfast was actually quite nice (not enough though for your money)
i have tried this hotel and i won't be going back

Room Tip: book elsewhere

Booked to stay in the cavendish but they put us in a room here instead. It is slightly better than the cavendish. It was lighter and had a reception but all the stairwells were very dark. The room looked lovely on first arrival but was on the top floor with lots of stairs. The bathroom was miniscule and contained a toilet and a shower. The sink was in the main room. There was only one towel each and no hand towels. There bed was so soft I spent all night thinking I was going to roll off the edge. They advertised that they had a bar but it was in their sister hotel, the cavendish. Please see other review. Would I stay here again, never.

Room Tip: Choose another place to stay

We stayed while visiting family for a couple of nights. Really convenient for sea front and town. Lovely large room - double and two singles - with tv and tea/coffee facilities and en suite shower room. Breakfast good value and nothing was too much trouble. Tables and chairs out front so smokers don't have to stand on the pavement outside. Only downer was trying to get parking despite buying the resident permit we knew we'd have to buy.
Really pleased with what we got for what we paid and the owners couldn't have been more friendly or helpful.

Room Tip: Room 1 was spacious with a double and two singles and the shower wasn't bad.
