Stayed here for one night while walking along the coast path and was dissapointed after having such good value on the previous hotels.
I booked a single and that's what I got, it was tiny with a very small shower. The room had tea making facilities and a tv. Both an afterthought and hard to use. If you wanted to watch tv you would need to sit on the end of the bed.
I walked around the centre early in the evening and had resigned myself to eating in the hotel as everything seemed closed but it was really standard pub grub and looking at the food people were eating I decided to go out for another walk and I am glad I did. The Smugglers kitchen was open and I had the best meal I have had for ages there. Plus a large G&T for £4 and a really nice Italian red to go with my slow cooked Ragu.
Breakfast at the hotel was very basic with little choice apart from the full English .
Staff were pleasant but the hotel is a bit of a time warp and things have moved on a lot.
Even at under £40 a night this was not good value.
