I stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks while flat hunting in the area, and loved the room they gave me. I had room number 42 which was a large, airy room with a truly exceptional sea view, as you can see from the photo.
The room was cleaned to a high standard every day, and the cleaners were chatty, friendly and really thorough. The bed was comfy too, so all is great there. Room service was expensive but fantastic food, their homemade burger was one of the best I've ever had.
The niggles, then:
The shower is a little disappointing in that it trickles rather than flows, so it takes a while to get your bits wet!
The complimentary Wi-Fi is painfully slow and intermittent, it's much stronger nearer the room door, but drops to "barely detectable" on the bed.
All the TVs are on the walls and you can sometimes hear the TV through the wall from the next room. It's a muffled hum rather than a boom, though and shouldn't really disturb you unless you're a very light sleeper.
All the above niggles are really nit-picky, and wouldn't put me off staying again. I'd probably even ask for the same room, simply to guarantee that beautiful view.
The breakfast is more than adequate, too. It's a small selection of continental (cereal, fruit, yoghurt, croissants, cheese) and a very decent full English, or kippers. I couldn't face a full English sometimes so just asked for a bacon or sausage sandwich and they were more than happy to accommodate.
On the whole, then. Well worth a stay and would stay again. To guarantee a phenomenal view, as for a sea view room on the 4th floor. You won't regret it.
