I apologise for the delay in responding. Frankly, my skin hadn't grown thick enough to face social media until yesterday, now I'm wading through a thousand of them. Thank you for saying what you did. Means the world to all of us.

Lovely hotel right on the esplanade with both modern and historic features.Comfortable room and great hosts who cooked us a tasty breakfast as well. Particularly enjoyed our glass of bubbles in the Champagne bar. Highly recommended.

Our courtyard room was small with no wardrobe, drawers or clothes storage other than a bracket sticking out from the wall which would take a few clothes hangers. The toilet, shower, and handbasin were all contained within a bathroom measuring about 1.2m by 3.0m so very very compact. The handbasin plug did not work so had to keep water running rather than fill up the basin. One bedside light did not work. Generally not to the standard would want but I am sure many would feel it was perfectly satisfactory. On the plus side it was clean, well located, helpful hosts, and a good breakfast.
