Booked for an out of season break. Got a great deal (3 nights paid for and a 4th for free) and it turned out to be v.good value for money.
Set back from seafront which is good for news for traffic noise but if you want a sea view you may need to be on the upper floors. Position was decent too, a short walk into town but not too close that its too busy/noisy. Managed to park close by each evening which you can't do on the seafront (or if you can, its limited in time).
Spotlessly clean room (quite roomy too which was nice), decor throughout the hotel was a little dated in colour etc but certainly not tatty and decorating was in progress so may change soon anyway. Room facilities were good and everything worked - the shower was very powerful and I had to keep dragging myself out of it as it was a nice place to be.
Staff were not overly friendly sometimes compared to other people we met on the island this week, nobody was rude and reception did help us out with our questions nicely but at breakfast a few more smiles would have brightened out mornings a little more. Nothing major - just a hint :-)
We don't deal with noise very well (we were away for a rest) and our room was nice and quiet despite facing onto the road (3rd floor) we also didn't get much noise from other guests (some hotels seem to have doors that only slam loudly and can't be closed gently - this one didn't).
Our king sized bed was very comfortable too - all in all we had a very restful stay - which is kind of the point.
I would definitely book here again - which I guess is the important bit.
