Stayed here when it was 1 Lyme and it was a great place to stay. Booked for the weekend just gone without realising it had changed hands and was now Hix, and then read some really awful reviews and was worried! Pleasantly surprised, Lorraine rung us on route to see what time we were likely to arrive and to make sure we were aware of the after hours arrival routine if needed. We needed to ring the emergency number to ask a question and it was answered straight away. We were in 4, which they had told us on booking was the last to be refurbd, nice bright airy room, with seperate sitting area, a little tired as expected but spotlessly clean, comfy bed and a view from bed of the sea. Yes you could hear next doors bathroom on occasion but this is an old houses not a new purpose built hotel. Breakfast..... Interesting, work in progress, muesli (bit like marmite you either love it or hate it!) should really be given a choice, a point the receptionist made a note of when I commented on check out, Pastries nice but a bit cold by the time they arrived and a scotch egg although tasty a bit random for breakfast. One day fresh strawberries and raspberries very nice, next day a small portion of raspberries and 2, yep 2 cherries?!? Would have been better left out. Generally at £165 per night a bit overpriced.
