Stayed here last week on a National Holidays break and like many hotels of this type had good and bad sides. Very impressively situated directly opposite the Pier and 5 minutes from the Royal Pavillion with superb sea views, this large hotel showed some signs of faded glory. Staff were friendly and helpful and rooms were decent if a bit old-fashioned. Downsides were the queue for the single lift, the very cold main bar lounge (could someone fix the window which wouldn't shut!) The self-service meals were adequate, but hardly exciting - personally we prefer to be waited upon!. The hotel had the misfortune to be without hot water for one night due to a broken boiler, but can't really blame them for that and it was quickly remedied. All in all it doeas what it says on the tin without blazing any trails.
