Nice old hotel. Hard to find the way into it when you're arriving by car, looks like you can get to it from the front, but you have to wriggle through back streets. A map would be useful as a guide when booking. Nice touch is the biscuits left daily when the room is cleaned.

Older style hotel in Victorian building out of city but conveniently located more for the mature guest like myself I would think.

Great staff, some rooms a bit tired

Pros: The staff - they turned my stay there from okay to excellent.
Cons: 1. In room safes. 2. The older rooms could be freshened up - they looked tired.
Location: Nil
The hotel was clean and comfortable and, for my purposes, in the right location. The hotel was a bit musty however the weather outside was terrible and the hotel is next to the sea. The standout feature of this hotel was the staff. They were unfailingly polite, friendly and everything you requested was absolutely no trouble. They couldn't do enough for you. And it wasn't isolated members of staff either - it was absolutely every member - front of house, cleaning staff, porters and so on.
