Have stayed in this hotel on business twice recently - both times I had a sea view room, the first time I had a suite. The hotel is well placed on the promenade, and affords great views across the promenade. Close enough to walk to town, but far enough out of the limelight - there's lots of stairs in an around the building, so not sure it would be good for disabled guests.
The rooms are a little dated, but clean and functional - decent shower, but toilet roll holders almost on the floor. Some rooms have poor provision of electric sockets, and the TV picture is not great. Good bar, and very good restaurant - the food is actually pretty spectacular - had both fish and streak, both were well made and presented. Good breakfast too. Not sure I'd want to stay there for a week, but for the odd couple of nights, it's perfect :)
