The staff at the Hampshire were all extremely pleasant and helpful, making us feel very welcome indeed - a credit to the hotel. Service was excellent and the hotel was spotless. The room was quite small and it was a bit inconvenient to have the washbasin in the bedroom - the bathroom was too small for a washbasin. Perhaps in need of a little renovation. The beds were very comfortable though and we did sleep well.
The bar, pool and decking area were fabulous but slightly disappointed to return to hotel late one afternoon to find all tables and loungers were taken by non-resident guests attending a private party.
A straight forward walk into town which took about 10 minutes - some good charity shops on the way down if you feel like a browse and a handy, well-stocked store/post office almost right next to the hotel. If you have kids, there is a good playing area at the back of the hotel in the sports stadium area.
Would definitely stay at the Hampshire again, particularly for a short break.More
