Good location with great views, I was on a business trip but would be suitable for family or couples. Room good size, clean. Reasonable room rate, good breakfast. Parking available nearby. On sea front and close to facilities in town and near attractions.

I visited this hotel for few days break with the girlfriend on arrival my room was no where near ready so we had to sit in the reception and wait 45 mins, not a big problem. We went to our room and on arrival it was beyond small and smelt of smoke, we just threw our bags in and went...

Thank you for your comments and I apologise we did not meet your allocation. Room sizes vary throughout the building being 150 years old and additions made along they way. I am sorry you had to wait to change rooms however as guests have until 12 noon to depart their rooms they then have to be cleaned. Once again I...

The rooms are nice and the food very good, but the thing that really lifted this place above many other hitters was the quality of the staff. Everyone I encountered during my stay was friendly and helpful, and nothing was ever too much trouble for anyone. I would certainly go back.

First impression is the internal\external building is tired, and new fixtures, fittings, and modernisation would greatly enhance the gorgeous original decor. The night we stayed the key cards for all the rooms was broken and everyone had to be shuttled about by staff to gain entry, this caused a bit of reception congestion. Whilst waiting you could if your ear...

Thank for your comments on your recent stay and I apologise we did not meet your expectations in some areas. Unfortunately we did have an issue with our key card machine and whilst out of action we had staff taking guests to bedrooms. The accessible room is part of our bedroom stock and is dual purpose and can be used...

This was a really pleasant hotel to stay in. We had a few issues (not the fault of the hotel) booking in, which were resolved swiftly & efficiently & the receptionist was clearly doing everything he could to help us, despite it being a third parties mistake. Our room faced the seafront with stunning views over to the west pier,...

Has to be the worst Accor hotel, we have stayed in, dirty rooms, dirty chairs and tables in restaurant, food poor quality, and our room, although upgraded, was something out of the dark ages, Windows, would not open due to broken mechanism, wallpaper hanging off, looked like the hotel carpets had not been cleaned in many a year.

We stayed here a couple days mid last week. The hotel was very busy. The staff where all very pleasant and polite. They went out of their way to assist and made out stay a memorable one.

We have just come back from a two night stay in this hotel and although the staff were friendly and room clean and comfortable, we were disappointed as this was not a four star hotel even though they charged as though they were. The window in our room was filthy as were the ones in the restaurant when you wanted...

Firstly, read the negative reviews and you will quickly notice that it's nothing to be worried about. The hotel is great, brilliant friendly staff and they will go above and beyond to help you. They upgraded our room cause we had a baby, gave us a cot and blanket. We're usually travelodge people and stick to it, but this was...

Vastly overpriced, shabby and very poor service. The rooms were poky, old fashioned, shabby and poorly furnished. The service in the bar and restaurant were pretty bad, seemed like the staff couldn't cope with the relatively few people at breakfast. £249 for a double room is outrageous. Dirty trays with leftover food left on the steps for the fire exit....
