Great BUT expensive
Posted Jul 16, 2012
Great hotel and location right on the waterfront, great view of the beach. Nice restaurant downstairs.
Parking is extra charge, and expensive,on top of this it is a 10-15 min walk away, not convenient really , but parking in Lyme Regis is very difficult. It's not a bad thing to get the car parked and walk everywhere.
Wifi is extra as well which is a shame, as it's free everywhere else , this is disappointing. You do get the first 10 mins free but the second disappointment is that the wifi connection is quite poor( at least my 10 mins worth was).
The rooms are not air-conditioned, and can get humid, but we found it was OK. We had a two bed suite, the second bedroom had a bunk bed. I think it would be crowded with 4 people for the whole suite, it would be better for two adults and two children. The shower room is tiny beware,you can't really change in there. Although clean and nice I would have expected more for the price, like a little more room in the bathroom, air-conditioning and free Wifi.
The restaurant was good, with a view of the beach and good food. Service here was friendly and welcoming.
Overall the criticisms are not major BUT it is expensive. We have stayed in similar rooms or had two separate rooms, with aircon, free parking and wifi, on a beach in Dorset and Devon for about two thirds to half this price. Have a look around.
By the way eat at Hix's restaurant, great service location and seafood.
