We had wanted to stay here or some time and finally got round to it last weekend. The hotel building is fabulous - totally dominating that area of Morecambe and set next to the fast flowing sea. The staff at the hotel were without exception polite, friendly and helpful. Our evening meal was good although my wife was not overly taken with her chicken but the dessert almost made up for it. For me the best meal was breakfast - the Eggs Benedict was one of the best breakfasts I have ever had, It wasn't massive but it was divine. The rooms are small but comfortable and the designers have made great use of the space available.
Now...the reason why it didn't get 5 stars.....there was a wedding on in the function room which meant our evening meal was accompanied by Steps, The Nolans and other such wedding favourites as well as a DJ rambling on. The soundproofing from function to main area is not as good as it could be! That's half a mark....it lost the other half because our room was quite hot, even with the windows open (only about 6" though as they have locks to stop people launching themselves out!) - we had no radiators on and it wasn't exactly warm outside. Not sure what it would be like in the summer, but it robbed me of some sleep.
Both these points are fairly minor and our overall impression of the place was very positive and we would definitely stay again. Well worth a visit - by far the best hotel on the North West coast and great value for money too.
