The room itself was actually nice, comfortable bed and great shower. Good location, beach within a couple minutes walk and we managed to find free parking on the streets no problem. However, noise is a massive issue. The pub shut at 10pm of course but it was the guests upstairs that were so noisy until well into the morning. There was no out of hours number to call with these issues as no member of staff is on site overnight, along with no one being there in the morning on check out. The housekeeping staff were very apologetic and pleasant, however on complaining after back home, the owner was rude and unhelpful, and on that basis we would not come back.
Very disappointing hotel! Very expensive when compared to the services provided. Dirty and in bad maintenance. No breakfast nor voucher was offered (instead of the pictures shown in its website). Finally, there is no receptionist in the morning, just in the evening when the pub is opened.
This is a nice hotel, above a pub which isn't the busiest so nice and quiet. Staff are very nice and helpful and the room we had is nice other than the wallpaper under the window hanging off. Set in a nice area but no parking and when the sun is out you might struggle as everyone wants to be in thislovely surroundings.
This is a lovely hotel. My room was spacious and comfortable, and had been recently refurbished. The building retains its elegant Edwardian exterior, and the staff are very friendly. The bar downstairs has a lot of character, and combines being welcoming with the feel of a real neighbourhood spot. The location is excellent; its only a few steps to the castle and south beach, and the centre of town is only a short walk further. The only downside is that, being above a bar and near to down, you do pick up a certain amount of noise at night. It wasn't enough to bother me - I passed all my nights very restfully indeed - but if you are a light sleeper it might be an annoyance.
The hotel rooms themselves look newly decorated and ours was to a good standard. The room was pretty small though, and the double bed seemed tiny compared to our king-size at home. The staff we met were all great, especially the girls in the downstairs pub who checked us in. Parking could be a problem, but I guess we were lucky and found somewhere close both days we stayed. Out major gripe was the cost of rooms- £112 a night was pretty excessive, without breakfast, but there didn't seem to be many other cheaper options in the town centre.
