Booked here for one night as a stopover, cheap deal with breakfast. We knew that it was being refurbished. Yes, it's tired, yes it's covered in scaffolding with a temporary reception, and yes it needs doing... But notwithstanding all of that the staff worked really hard to make it a pleasant stay. The room was ok, breakfast was good, and...

The hotel is currently undergoing a major and much needed refurbishment so is completely shrouded in scaffolding and the public rooms , bar, restaurant etc have been temporarily relocated while work continues which could last until September 2017. The hotel has a great location but the decor is very tired and in need of the update, the lift Is particularly...

My wife and I stayed for one night on a Groupon deal. The hotel was a nice hotel with good friendly and efficient staff. Some of the decor looks a bit tired in the hallways etc, but overall it was a very good experience and I would definitely go again. The food was good and the staff were very hard...

Good hotel with quality rooms which are very clean. Friendly staff, Although the breakfast waiter was very harassed and let us know it! Breakfast was very good (I'm told by my husband). Hotel very central with good views of the sea and a super Italian Restaurant next door

My partner and I went there for the Easter weekend. The hotel is situated in a very convenient location; very close to the Lower Leas Coastal Park, as well as 10 min away from the center.

Let’s not beat about the bush – you can’t better the hotel’s location, right by the sea front, and the period building (a former 1860’s Victorian town house) will definitely appeal to those wanting ‘quaint’ or ‘old fashioned’ (the Americans will certainly love it). But, I feel there are a few modern touches required to give the place wider appeal....
