You get what you pay for, breakfast was lovely, the poor woman was rushed off her feet but was very apologetic and polite. The room was just a basic as we was at a wedding, however there was a lovely view and was clean

We enjoyed our stay here. Although the building is old and shows it in places, it is well maintained and clean. The staff are friendly & helpful. The location is excellent both for access to town centre, buses & trains and for the view over sea to France. Room 42 has a superb panoramic window!
