nice hotel, has seen better days, needs tlc update
picked night of storm Angus, dramatic, whistling wind, white-foam lashing seafront - but very atmospheric Erevivinjoyed period feel and room was clean, comfortable, and had sea view - driving rain and fairy lights leaping in the gale! Check-in took forever and buffet breakfast was a bit lukewarm and bacon a bit sad. But staff were helpful and kindly let me leave luggage in cupboard following day, after checkout, so that I could enjoy a brisk walk along the promenade. I would stay there again - but would like to see some restoration and reviving of features such as stained glass windows on stairwell, new blinds and carpeting, but appreciate problems of countering salty sea air and heavy customer footfall.
