Good Hotel Guide Review
The Grose family have delivered ‘first-class’ hospitality for over 120 years at their ‘very good’, family-friendly hotel, a five-minute walk from the sea. Many of the well-equipped bedrooms have ‘wonderful’ views over the large subtropical gardens and the coast. There’s much diversion: croquet lawns, sun terraces, sports facilities, a spa; young guests also have a children’s club during the school holidays. ‘All the food is excellent’: dress up for dinner in the restaurant; enjoy crab sandwiches and seafood platters at the terrace bar; drink real ales in the 16th-century pub; take an ‘excellent’ cream tea in the garden in fine weather. Lounges, bar, Margaret Amelia restaurant (open to non-residents), pub. Lift. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Sky). No background music. Civil wedding licence, functions. Terrace, outdoor eating area.
