Typical, old, British seaside hotel. Perfect central location for walking to Pavilion; The Lanes; North Laine, seafront; pier etc. Has been kept very well with bundles of character. Plenty of cosy corners in lounge with a bar area overlooking the sea. Friendly and polite staff.

Lovely hotel, however, room was too hot. Too many pipes running through room 149, radiator not on, didn't need it. ceiling fan wouldnt work. No pressure on the cold water. Shower was dangerously hot. I did report it to reception but we only stayed one night.
