My wife and I arrived at this hotel late afternoon on 18th November 2013. We were greeted by 2 lovely people, who were friendly, helpful, and gave us everything we asked for. Once we had settled in, we explored the hotel and found it to be well decorated and reasonably clean throughout. The bar and entertainment area was well appointed and on the ground floor. The ballroom and bar in the basement was no longer being used for that purpose, and appeared to be just a storage area for broken and unused items from the hotel. The restaurant was also situated in the basement level, and was accessed by way of a very narrow stairway. The restaurant could also be accessed by a lift, which was in constant use, so could entail some waiting time. The breakfasts were very good with plenty of choice, but the evening meals were very average. For the price we paid, we found the meals to be acceptable.
The hotel was in a very good position, near to the seafront. The town was easily accessible and only a short walk away through the park. There were plenty of eating and drinking places in the town, and of reasonable quality.
Overall, we had a very pleasant stay for 4 lovely days.
