Called the hotel at 4 pm on a Monday. Lovely gentleman answered the phone, sorted me with a room at a very reasonable rate and was kind enough to offer me a sea view room. Easy to find, ample parking and on check in I'd been upgraded to a deluxe room the Louis Jardot. Wow. Beautiful room, gorgeous bathroom, spotlessly... More

I felt very welcome from the moment I walked through the door and the staff especially were very friendly and efficient. Two restaurants with great food, one with sea views. I would definitely go back whenever I am in the area.

Very welcoming, friendly staff; comfortable room overlooking the sea front; excellent breakfast. What more could one want? Ruinart room had one foible: the aircon unit wheezed and creaked if the window was open. Stopped as soon as it was closed. Slightly baffling but easily sorted. Balcony would be great in the summer months: the weather was perfect/no wind but outside... More

I have now been staying here regularly on business for the last 3 years, during that time I have always found the service to be excellent, with friendly staff and good food. You can either eat at the bar or in the restaurant, both are good and reasonably priced.

Stayed on a B&B basis but had an evening meal there too as arrived late. The staff were helpful. Evening meal was good and enjoyable: good portions. Room was warm, clean and comfy. Didn't find the team making facilities in the room as hidden in the luggage cupboard! Breakfast was good .
