My wife and I have just returned from a 5 day break to this hotel travelling with David Goodfellow Holidays.
On arrival the Manager boarded the coach and welcomed us, he then invited us inside for tea/coffee whilst explaining the layout and times of meals etc.
Our room 322 was situated on the second floor to the rear and side of the hotel. First impressions, small room (one of the smallest we have stayed in) twin beds, chair, double wardrobe, flat screen TV, bedside cabinet, set of drawers, tea/coffee making facilities. Bathroom, small. New fixtures and fittings, small shower cubicle. Soap/Hand cream dispensers.
Breakfast. Many choices of cereal. Good full English cooked breakfast. Toast and jams. Tea/coffee.
Dinner. Choice of 5 Starters, 5 Main courses, 5 Sweets. The meals are excellent, quality and presentation.
The Hotel is located on a quiet side street just around the corner from the Esplanade, harbour and sea front. (approx. 300 metres)
The main shopping area is approx. the same distance from the hotel in the opposite direction.
Now for the negatives: Our room could do with a deep clean on a monthly basis (wipe down of the doors and cleaning of the windows to remove cobwebs). The base of the twin beds would be better if they were covered to hide the marks.
Now for the Positives. Overall a good hotel. The Restaurant staff are excellent. They work very hard and in my opinion are sometimes under staffed. Attentive, sociable, polite and well trained.
The food is amazing. (by far one of the best places for food I have stayed in. Well done)
On the day of departure the Manager once again boarded the coach to wish us a safe journey and thank us for our custom.
Would I recommend this hotel?? YES
