Very welcome terrace resteraunt. We both had olives starter and catch of the day main... Delicious tasty food and still warm (Considering the wind!!) decent glass of house white wine too. Friendly staff. Watched all the chairs and tables being properly cleaned between clients too. Would definitely recommend a visit. Thank you to cheerful, friendly staff.

Only our third meal out since March, and only chosen because the weather was too dire for the long walk we had planned, we booked a table for lunch. It's easy to get out of the habit of eating out, particularly at a time when things are so different from normal, but apart from careful one-way signage and the staff wearing masks, this was a welcome return to normality. We pretty much had the place ourselves, so service as attentive, the sea view inspiring and the food just wonderful. For what I always consider the town's premier hotel, lunch was also surprisingly affordable.

Stayed at the Brudenell Hotel on Saturday night taking advantage of one of their Special Black Friday Luxury deals. This included a cream tea on arrival, dinner, overnight stay and full breakfast. We have had meals there before but never stayed. What an amazing treat it was. Room 106 looking out to sea was real luxurious from comfortable bed to super shower! Yes a shower that does what it says on the tin. Good vibes in the restaurant at dinner even though COVID-19 restrictions applied. Enjoyable Fish and chips for me and my wife enjoyed the crab Thermidor. Following a good night’s sleep in a super size bed we both sauntered down for breakfast. I had a full traditional breakfast with all the extras, black pudding beans etc. Good hearty stuff. My wife had the vegetarian option which looked very tasty too. Excellent service and efficient too. So I really cannot fault the stay and the luxury experience. We will certainly stay again.

A really nice stay, Nice room with sea view. Covid measures good. There were lots of hand sanitiser points. Staff we met were all very friendly. Breakfast was lovely and well presented. We’ll be back next year I’m sure

We expected to have a lovely time as we've stayed at the Brudenell before. Room fine apart from very high bath on claw feet! But the service was poor, and the problems as follows: The waitress never asked us if we wanted fresh drinks at lunch, though my glass had been empty a while. Whilst waiting for our room to be made available in the lounge/bar area, no one approached us to see if we wanted coffees etc. The same waitress from lunchtime was in and out all the time but ignored us. The roast beef for lunch was underdone (all pink) and I had to order something else. Some people might like it like that, but I don't, and wasn't asked. We ended up sharing a fork between us at breakfast as the breakfast wasn't cooked as my husband had asked, and they forgot to replace his cutlery when they brought his breakfast back. I could really have done with some more coffee but there was no-one to ask. The waiters and waitresses were not exactly attentive. Worse still, my husband had a terrible choking fit on his breakfast starter, and I had to thump his back for ages before he could breath again. No-one in the hotel offered help, not even a glass of water! A very disappointing stay and not what we expected.
