lovely hotel, the owner was very helpful, and very friendly. lovely welcome when we got to the hotel. the room was very clean, comfortable and en-suite. the car was parked on a patch of grass outside the hotel, which was quite solid and didn't resemble a muddy field as suggested in other reviews. there was a padlocked chain across the opening and the car was visible from the room. were given a key to the padlock, but had no need to move the car once parked up as the hotel was in an ideal location for a 2 minute walk to sea front, entertainment, restaurants shopping etc, also train station and public transport. the breakfast was at 8.30am, which was not a problem, had it have been 6.30 this wouldn't have been a problem, but wouldn't be fair to expect jackie to start cooking at 6.30 and still be cooking at 9.30-10 for people who want to lie in!!!!! she served 11 people at once and recieved no complaints from any of us only that we couldn't eat much more lol, due to the fact we had, orange juice, pot of coffee pot of tea, from which my husband drank 3 cups, full english breakfast, with toast (breakfast was 2 bacon, 1 sausage 1 egg, beans, mushrooms, a whole fried tomato, fried bread) also bread, butter, jam and marmalade, which from any cafe, would have cost at least £10-£15, and was also asked if we wanted any more toast, the breakfast was served toeveryone piping hot, for which jackie deserved some credit. our room was at the top of a second staircase, which was not a problem, had either me or my husband had a problem with stairs, we would have asked about this before booking the room. there was tea and coffee in the room, which we drank straight away after a 3 hour drive. on the top of the fist set of stairs, were extra tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits, alongside what i would describe as, an honesty box, from which we had 2 satchets of tea with 2 tea bags in each, 2 satchets of milk, a cappachino, sugars and 2 finger kitkats, to which i left a £1. i would imagine that the owners of the hotel would have to pay for these, so did not see any problem with this small charge. an alternative would have been to walk to a local cafe, which would have cost us more. all this above has cost us around £50, which after stopping in several hotels, we consider excellent value. we searched for quite a few hours for an hotel on the internet, the average price was around £85, one of these hotels was a well known hotel, which we walked past whilst there and noticed it had parking meters on their carpark, which would have been an extra charge on top of £85, so overall excellent value with the added warm hospitality. would recommend this place to anyone.
