The welcome when we arrived was warm and friendly with tea and coffee offered in the lounge. We were given details of the hotel and meal times and then our room cards. Suitcases were swiftly taken to our rooms. My room was 4A on the first floor. One of the best single rooms I have had. Plenty of space and...

Lovely quiet situation but a short stroll to the many and varied restaurants in the town. Lovely sea views. The bedrooms are large and traditionally furnished. The restaurant, again traditionally furnished is large, light and airy. Breakfast was delicious. The staff are friendly and helpful. It was excellent value for money. Would certainly come back.

First visit and would not make this first choice. On the plus side we asked and got a double room although the site we booked through said only twin available. It was a cosy room on top floor with a sea view so happy with that as it was last minute. For this reason have allocated it an average rather...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. We are pleased you liked your room and the sea view you had. To clarify, the lift itself does not have a 'habit of breaking down', we had been experiencing trouble the previous couple of days and the problem has since been resolved. We do accept small...

The hotel rang me to check as there was a problem with my name and payment and instead of just cancelling the booking were very helpful and understanding very polite and friendly. On arrival was very happy at the state of the outside and receptionist was 5star. When I walked through the lobby I could see this was a very...

Wow, I'm sure this place deserves more than a ** rating. I usually book at *** and this is for sure that good, if not better. Certainly beats the hotel on the corner (which shall remain nameless!). Excellent staff, couldn't fault them, terrific attitude and couldn't be more helpful. My room could have been nicer but I have had worse...

We were part of a coach party from Eastbourne. On arrival we were warmly welcomed with tea and biscuits, efficiently allocated our rooms and the suitcases were delivered to our room door. The room was warm and comfortable on a bitterly cold day and we enjoyed the tea and coffee facilities. The three course dinner was excellent with a lovely...
