i stayed here for 2 nights whilst attending a wedding. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room I stayed in was large and had lovely views over the promenade and sea front. The room was perfectly comfortable and nicely appointed; however, I would say it needed some TLC and redecoration as it was a little tired and the bathroom a little dated. Breakfast was very good, with lots of choice. I would say the room rates are a bit pricey especially given the condition of some areas but it is an elegant hotel and I would stay here again.
