Despite being incredibly busy due to the sea-shanty weekend, four of us enjoyed a wonderful lunch today served by friendly attentive staff. The kitchen must have been under a lot of pressure but the food and presentation was excellent. Really well done.

Had an excellent stay at the homely Alma
Room was clean and quirky with the sloping floor and lovely beams. The staff were really friendly
Evening meal was fantastic and the cooked breakfast was so nice we had stayed at The Grand in Brighton the week previous but the cooked breakfast at The Alma beat that hands down !!!. Highly recommend

On a weekend away we popped in by chance for a drink and some food, such a friendly warm welcome, really warm atmosphere and I can see in the evening how this would be a great vibe with the selection of beers and gins.
I had a lovely roast dinner, the food is lovely

This was our third visit to take advantage of their "off season" deal and what a deal!
We were 3 couples staying in adjoining rooms. Dinner and breakfast were both excellent but what we return for above all else is the friendly welcoming atmosphere and the genuine enthusiasm of the staff. Couple that with excellent beers and wine and you are on to a winner!!!!!!
