Its really only worth paying the preium prices for this hotel if you have a sea view room, which we did. Last year we could see the Cobb whilst laying in bed, this year in Room one we had to move a chair to the window, but what a view!
Room was very clean and nicely decorated, bathroom refurbed and modern, a bit bijou though. Tiny bath with shower over, which did run a bit "hot and cold" unpredictably.
Its a small car park, but personally we have no problem leaving keys at reception so they can shuffle double parked cars around as needed.
There is a lovely lawn and patio area overlooking the sea, also there are comfy sunloungers which we were lucky enough to use for a couple of hours and enjoy the rarity of sun this year!
Food and service was good, but one thing I found a bit annoying was that if you stay on a Friday and Saturday night then you MUST pay for an evening meal on each of those evenings. We had especially travelled to Lyme for an event on the Saturday evening, luckily we booked dinner at 7pm and were able to be where we wanted soon after nine, but I would rather have had the flexibility of making my own eating arrangements that evening.
All in all a pleasant stay in a relaxing atmosphere, falling somewhere between "good" and "very good" but slightly pricey for the size of the room.
