We stayed here for a night in September. Firstly, as we were warned, the car parking is a bit of a nightmare, cars have to park in narrow rows so you can get boxed in, also there is a row of small ‘kerb’ stones separating the parking area from the pathway and if your tyre slips down this you could damage your tyres. We weren’t using the car that day or night so didn’t mind getting blocked in.
The whole place has an old feel to it which we actually loved, very quirky. There is a lift which is just as well because we were on the third floor, we were facing the front which had a fantastic view all along the beach to Poole and then looking across Shell bay and the IOW.
There is a kettle with tea and coffee, a hairdryer, tv but the smallest bathroom I’ve ever seen. But although dated everything was clean, the bed and pillows were comfy.
Lovely front terrace with tables and chairs, great for a sandwich and a pint which we had, great view.
Breakfast was good, plenty of tea and coffee but one criticism, the quality of the sausages was poor but the rest was okay, oh and black pudding.
Nice friendly staff.More
