Good Hotel Guide Review

Steps from the Victorian pier, Elyse and Michael Waddy’s 19th-century house takes in the ‘elegant sweep’ of the promenade at this popular seaside resort. The third generation of a local hotelier family, the Waddys have run their small hotel since 2001 (big-sister property the Empire is around the corner, with spa facilities to share). The former gentleman’s residence is ornately decorated with a wealth of original features, antique furnishings, drapes, paintings, ‘table lamps everywhere’ – ‘it’s all very atmospheric’. Upstairs, the ‘beautifully furnished bedrooms’ – spacious suites, really, with a separate sitting room – are suitably grand. Each has fine art and motley antiques, oriental rugs on bare floorboards, an original marble fireplace, perhaps a draped canopy bed or two. Second-floor rooms have the ‘best views of the beautiful bay and the cliffs in all their glory’. The all-day bistro has high-flown decor (chandeliers, fluted pillars, grand portraits), but the food is down-to-earth – sample a slow-roasted lamb shank, say, or curried monkfish and king prawns. Continental breakfasts are served here; alternatively, visit the Empire for a hot dish. More reports, please.

Guest comments

'The Osborne Suites take a lot of beating. Ours was beautifully furnished with antiques. It had wooden floors with rugs throughout, a sitting room with a large bay window overlooking the elegant promenade, real flame-effect gas fire and a lovely, large squishy sofa in front of a large, square coffee table. Table lamps everywhere. An archway led to the beautifully furnished, bedroom. There is a pantry area with fridge, china, cafetiere and kettle; also a clothes-hanging area. The well-appointed bathroom had separate loo, washbasin, roll-top bath and separate rain shower. The restaurant is all-day and referred to as bistro style, but it is far more elegant than many hotel restaurants I have been to. You really feel it is a special occasion eating here.

'An unusual, exciting place to stay. Our second-floor suite was gorgeous. The best hotel bedroom we have come across. Pictures everywhere, and interesting Victorian furniture. Large rugs on original wood floors. Bathroom with roll-top bath and marble floor. Lighting was excellent. The bar and restaurant are very theatrical. White pillars, gilt mirrors, candles. Stunning. The restaurant serves food all day and the joy is you don’t have to take a three- or four-course meal. Very good gastro-pub standards. Continental breakfast served in our suite at a window facing the sea. You can us the pool and spa of the sister hotel. ' - Barbara Watkinson - September, 2012
'We have stayed there on 20+ occasions. Real luxury ' - Jan Sheath - October, 2011
