I have stayed in this hotel several times since 2002, the most recent stay being May 2017. I love the sea view rooms which have large bay type windows. This time our ground floor room was facing the hotel opposite (so on the side of the hotel) but still had a seaview to one side. The room was clean, comfortable...

A really well restored Edwardian hotel with an excellent restaurant, The Channel, and the most wonderfully helpful and friendly staff. Quite frankly, it is outstanding value at the price. At this price, you can't expect the Ritz, but the beds were very comfy and the breakfast was basic but wholesome. The whole experience was a great break. We will certainly...

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. I found the room very cosy and the bathroom was clean. The staff are very friendly and accommating, they make you feel welcome and valued. I'd recommend booking directly through the hotel website as you would get breakfast included which included cereals and various English continental breakfast foods. One recommendation would be...

Our sea view room (11) was a good size. It was on the side of the hotel which meant the sea view was at an angle but also that we were slightly away from the road which meant it was quieter. We booked direct with the hotel - they matched the best online price but also gave us free breakfasts....

We stayed for 2 nights for our 49th Wedding Anniversary in March. We had a de-luxe room which had a large bay window with super views along the coast.
