I am writing this review from the bar area and there is a constant sound of drilling and hammering as this hotel undergoes renewal of windows, decorating and other renovation. Unfortunately my room is very near the work area which means there is no peace from 8.30am until the evening, apart from the afternoon break. I wish I had been...

I returned from a one week stay at this hotel last month. The location is excellent, being on the promenade at the quieter end of the seafront. It has a relatively narrow sea frontage so that many, if not all, rooms whilst having a balcony do not enjoy a good sea-view and many face a narrow side-street so, if a...
