Friendly Hotel by the Sea
Posted Mar 19, 2017
Opted for an executive room - and we weren't disappointed. Beautifully furnished (recently refurbished) the room had a sea view, and had little touches that made the stay memorable. Tassimo coffee/tea maker, decent shower products, gown and choose the turn down service and you receive a tasty cake and some slippers!! The bed was a comfy king size, and although we were above the front door (and bar) once the bar had closed at 11 there was no disturbance. Even when open, although you could hear the TV, and conversation from the bar, it wasn't intrusive. That said, we stayed midweek, so whether it's a bit noisier during the weekend, I wouldn't know. The breakfast during the week was freshly cooked (fewer guests) and delicious. Friday morning, however, it was hot buffet service (more guests I'm guessing). It was ok - but the scrambled egg resembled a hard block of mashed potato (not visually enticing!) so I requested a couple of poached eggs, which were delivered quickly and I expect tasted better! That said, it is difficult to precook the egg and keep it warm .... The staff were all friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was a problem with the wifi whilst we were there - but that's the world over! Highly recommend this hotel and do try their gin - distilled on site.
