Could not recommend room 211 , shabby very old furniture and very cramped . Food excellent but dining room service a bit frantic at times, not at all a relaxed experience, tables also on the small size .

This is a seaside resort in the old fashioned style. Like it’s sister hotel (The Victoria in Sidmouth) you would expect to see Miss Marple in the lounge doing her knitting. Food and accommodation - excellent. Staff - very excellent.
