I have known The Fludyer Arms for over 60 years and until recently it has had the appearance of a tired hostelry which, despite its great location across from the beach was unattractive. The new owners had a vision and their architects and interior designers have worked wonders to transform it from ugly duckling to elegant swan. We occupied a mews room across the drive from the main hotel which has been adapted as a disabled suite. Although neither of us are disabled it was the only room available and we were not disappointed and the wet room was amazing. The rooms are well furnished with comfortable beds decent pillows and duvets. Flat screen TV and free WiFi together with kettle tea making facilities make for a delightful stay. Breakfast is served in the bar and cooked to order. Juices, fruit salad smoked salmon and full English are offered and £100 per room including breakfast is incredible value for money. In summer the outside covered terrace overlooking the beach would be delightful and as it is on the east coast a nice touch is the patio heaters. A brisk walk along the promenade into town is a must. The staff could not be faulted, we got back a bit late in the evening, the barman had just cleaned the coffee machine ready to close but willingly served us coffee without any fuss. The same can be said for all the other staff and it was a pleasure to be served by them.
