Reviewed yesterday NEW

Excellent food, staff busy but helpful. Sea view room recommended. Overall hotel okay for 2 or 3 nights stay. Pity about parking being in a public car park over the road from hotel and you have to display a parking permit.

We stayed for 3 nights Fri-Sun. Our room was on level 2 & quite comfortable without sea views. Full buffet breakfast was included with our tariff. There was a good selection to choose from and the hot food was of good temperature. Staff at reception and in the dining room were warm and welcoming. A wedding was held on the...

Firstly, the staff, where for the hotel or restaurants/bar are very helpful and friendly and they did their best to make our stay great. First impressions on checking is that the place is a little dated. We stayed on level 4, and with only one lift operating when we were there, it could take quite some time. Entering the room,...

An 'old style' hotel physically but modern service and staff who couldnt be more helpful. Breakfast is one of the best I've had in a hotel and the restaurant is top class, seemingly also used by the well heeled locals. My room was very quiet with a view of France, comfy even if on a very slight slope....added to the...

Excellent staff, very obliging and nothing is to much trouble for them. I stayed here overnight to be close to the cruise terminal for the next days sailing. The hotel is very old but full of character, the rooms are pleasant although as there is only one lift it is sometimes a struggle to get to your room or back...

Room had a sea view and had all the amenities one would expect in this class of hotel. I had passed this hotel (when it was The White Cliffs Hotel) nearly every day throughout my childhood and early adulthood. It came up to my expectations

We received a gift voucher from a friend for afternoon tea for two at the hotel which was served in the Waterfront Restaurant. We were shown to a table for two in the glass fronted verandah overlooking the harbour which sparkled in the delightful sunshine. Our order was taken quickly by a very efficient and friendly young lady and after...

I stayed here on business last week. I arrived at 11pm and left at 5.30pm so didn't get to try the breakfast (starts at 6.30pm) or the gym, so I can't comment on them. I had a sea view room that cost £104. The room was very small and old fashioned. The window was very small as well. However it...
