Good Hotel Guide Review

Blond sofas, fluted pillars, chandeliers, paintings, oriental rugs, gilded mirrors… Opulence abounds in this bay-fronted Victorian former gentleman’s residence on the prom. Owned by the Maddocks and Waddy families, it displays the high style of the 1850s, when the resort first boomed. The ‘rooms’ are suites, no less, with a separate sitting room, lavishly appointed and so reasonably priced. They have, variously, a four-poster bed with diaphanous drapes, antiques, original working gas fireplace and marble fire surround. Each room has a marble bathroom with a cast iron bath and walk-in shower. ‘Beautifully furnished,’ say our readers, and ‘very atmospheric’. There is no lift, so the fourth-floor attic room is not for everyone. Second-floor rooms have the best views. Food is served all day in the bistro, from the continental breakfast, through brunch (maybe omelette and hash browns; eggs Benedict with smoked salmon), to lobster roll with sweet-potato fries, burgers, steaks, cod and chips and more. There are unchanging specials – Thursday, navarin of lamb, Friday, fish crumble… As a bonus, guests have the use of the spa at big-sister hotel the Empire, round the corner.

Guest comments

'We weer pleasantly surprised by the elegant Victorian grandeur of our characterful room. Dinner in the splendid, ornate dining room, was unsophisticated but dishes were tasty and generously portioned; service was good. The continental breakfast was variable. Cooked breakfast at the sister hotel was disappointing. ' - Steven Hur - September, 2019
