Staff very friendly and helpfull. Sea facing rooms have fantastic views. Hotel is dated and a bit tired in some areas but room was well appointed (had the creakiest floorboards ever though). Good breakfast and parking was free due to first week of re-opening post lockdown. Just one minute from town centre so perfect location.
