As per another review, I am unsure which organisation granted this hotel 4* status. We paid extra for a sea view and were on the ground floor behind a large patch of shrubs with minimal views to the sides. The TV had come off its wall bracket and was propped up on the dressing table (rendering it unusable) on a pile of dusty leather booklets. The bathroom had obviously been newly refurbished and was clean, however the door looked like someone had tried to punch their way through. The decor was tired and bed linen old fashioned. Breakfast was acceptable although all ingredients obviously cheapest possible (long life orange juice, poor quality sausages).
Good points: clean, comfortable bed, quiet street, good location for seafront, pier, town centre
Bad points: dreadful value for money, poor breakfast, very limited parking available,
Room rate was £98, was probably worth £60 maximum. Go elsewhere.
