We stayed here recently and were disappointed with the standard of the hotel, given the price we were paying. The garden was lovely, great views, but the inside of the hotel was rather old school, and our room in particular was very small and also very dusty - both my husband and i felt uncomfortable there after a nights sleep and were keen to get out into the air. The location is great, right on the cliffs over looking the esplanade, but I would be unlikely to stay there again. Also, the breakfast is only offered between 8.30 and 9am each morning, which lead to us missing it most mornings of our stay, as that's a pretty tight window, especially on Saturday and Sunday mornings!
Had the price been more reasonable, we might have overlooked the other issues, but for that cost, I would have expected much better.
