Lovely clean and fresh rooms, good size and great views. We were in room 2. Very quiet, we thought we were the only people staying, until the breakfast room filled up in the morning and we were surprised, hadn’t heard anyone else since arriving the night before. Liked the contemporary style introduced to a classic building downstairs, rooms could do... More

Thank you for your honest review Tim and we are glad your overall stay was a good one. We would like to point out that your booking through a third party website was actually for a luxury room which we upgraded you to a studio suite as one was available and at no extra charge.

We arrived Friday afternoon for two nights stay and knew we would love this place.

I was recommended this hotel by a friend and was not disappointed. I was treating my partner to a special birthday weekend and paid for a seaview room (4) without balcony as was unsure what the weather would be doing in Oct. It was perfect, nice touches such as slippers and dressing gown not to mention the Molton Brown toiletries... More

This is a small hotel situated on a road set above the Esplanade and a short walk up to the High Street or down to the beach.

Fantastic location, 5 minutes walk to the beach, where you'll find some nice restaurants. Stayed in room one and it wasn't disappointing, view from our room was beautiful ( loving the French doors). The breakfast was presented nicely and was very tasty. Customer service was excellent, made you feel right at home! Well done! 👍🏼👍🏼

We loved this hotel. We booked two rooms and both were characterful, a good size and had nice, clean, well-equipped bathrooms. The view from the bigger room (first floor at the front) was delightful and, for once, a hotel balcony was big enough actually to use! Of course it helped that we had splendid weather while we were there but... More

“Every room has a sea view and the second floor might be quieter, but I'd go for room 1 or 2 for the space, the balcony and the view.”

“Rooms 1 and 2 looked amazing with large front facing balconies - if you can stretch the budget for those they would be well worth it.”
