The only thing that was not so good was that because of Coronavirus the breakfast only consited of a sandwich, a bag of crisps, an apple, and a bottle of water. I stayed there during the summer, and the breakfast then was good.

honest review of our room & hotel-lovely holiday
Overall our stay was lovely at the hotel in room 312. Good points and bad points as with everything. Not so good that the windows have a huge draft coming through especially in the cold months. There are heaters in living room and bedroom so keeps it warm but they go off during the night. The building is old so to be expected from character windows but would be nice to have some draft excluders. Not so good that soon as we arrived - where's your mask? We don't wear masks so after we told them that they were fine with it the whole stay. Would be nice to have a vegetarian option on show for breakfast or vegan option. Would be nice to have a small tv in bedroom too so can watch tv in bed. Good points. View was beautiful over the sea from living room .bathroom and bedroom. There was a fridge and kettle so you can make your own snacks in the room. Newsagents just downstairs on the row of shops. Right on the sea front. Sofa could be a big bigger as was a bit small but was nice to cosy up and watch tv with the sea in background. Very spacious room and lady with the blonde hair on reception was very welcoming. Breakfast with a view. 11 pound quite expensive for a non buffet breakfast but still lots of variety to choose from :)
