Lovely hotel on the seafront with parking next to it. Also has a bar selling food and drink which was nice. Lovely room. Not that cheap but room was lovely. Very quirky. Gorgeous views too and close to town centre. Would visit again.

Yes next to the Royal in council car park but make sure you purchase ticket for overnight and then in the morning if leaving car after certain time. I think you need a ticket after 9:00am but it is cheap.
