Good Hotel Guide Review
With boats bobbing on the water and ‘magnificent’ vistas across the harbour, life on the water’s edge doesn’t come much closer than at this large hotel, the oldest in the maritime town. The building is an amalgam of modern additions to a 17th-century sailors’ pub; today, coastal light floods in to its public spaces, and its bedrooms and suites, some harbour facing, are bright and contemporary. Food is served all day in the restaurant (perhaps shellfish lasagne, pan-fried brill); in the dog-friendly Working Boat pub, find hearty portions, Sunday roasts and a home brew. Step straight on to a boat from the hotel’s pontoons; a ten-minute stroll away, board the Flushing Ferry to the historic fishing village.
