Good Hotel Guide Review
It’s easy being green at this handsomely restored Grade II listed Victorian villa close to the seafront. Rescued from dereliction by co-owner Christopher Airey, the hotel is run with a commitment to environmental consciousness: the chic, modern interior is decorated with natural and organic materials, and eco paints and wallpaper; its furnishings are made from storm-felled trees; solar panels power an ecological energy system; bees make honey in the rooftop beehives. In the stylish bedrooms, find organic bedlinen; a jar of freshly baked biscuits. Choose from chef Andy Hilton’s unfussy modern menu in the Arbor restaurant; in clement weather, the terrace is the place to be. Bar, restaurant. Terrace. Lift. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview).
