  • Had an excellent stay. Fascinating building which makes the most of its history. Stayed in a family room which had an excellent layout allowing the grown ups to stay up once the children had gone to bed. Lovely sea view. Had everything we needed and very comfortable. Very good location away from the busy seafront but close enough to walk into town. Would definitely recommend and hopefully will be staying again soon.
  • Popular with the elderly locals..interior is like a time warp. Think very old museum/old people's home.. had to persuade staff to serve coffee..lunch service was being served at the time. Lady was nice and risked the wrath of the kitchen for our coffee. Sat outside which was nice and relaxed. Odd but pleasant place. 3 stars given for the outside seating area.
  • Awesome hotel. Full of character. Creaking floorboards, ancient lift, bath tubs, staff are great. Expect a past experience here. I only stayed one night on the off chance with work but wow what a night. I think ill be back very soon for a holiday break.
  • Delight ful place tor Sunday lunch👌very good service from very pleasant and friendly staff and the pianist played such lovely songs thank you👍
  • Charming but slightly run down Edwardian hotel. Really loved the decor and had to have a drink in the bar. The whole place is gorgeous in a faded glamour sort of way.
