Reviewed 18 July 2016

Our family of five stayed here for two nights while touring southeast England. It's a beautiful old hotel with long winding hallways. The rooms are very nice and feel surprisingly modern and the beds are comfortable. Our beach-front view from the third floor (Room 348) was fantastic and offered a breeze through the open windows (there is no air conditioning)....

I cannot rate this hotel high enough, I walked in, with a ridiculous amount of bags ( i have a 3 year)..Porter took my bags - delivered to room, one of the immense lounges were empty (even though there was a charity event on) so loads of space to not feel my toddler was upsetting people.

Excellent we'll run hotel in a lovely position. My bedroom had recently been refurbished, the decor was delightful and a lot of attention had been paid to detail. The staff were pleasant, helpful and anxious to please. The vintage tea was outstanding and too be recommended. The Reception area could do with updating.

The hotel was very accommodating for a large group of people. The staff were all polite and very attentive. Various members stayed and all had different requirements that were well attended to. The hotel is undertaking a lot of refurbishment which I think will contribute to an already beautiful, historic hotel. Food was good too! Thank you :)

Lovely family function celebration. Made to feel special and all requests catered for. Lovely friendly staff from beginning to end. Superb full English breakfast. Bedroom on the small side, but it was the last one available, and we were given an accurate description before booking.

The staff are very courteous and helpful, without exception. The whole atmosphere just that little bit Olde Worlde which we like. The community rooms have a welcoming air, with comfortable chairs, and there is a cosy bar.
