Good Hotel Guide Review
Soothing sounds of the sea, boats bobbing on the water, ‘magnificent’ vistas across the harbour – life on the water’s edge doesn’t come much closer. ‘Attractively furnished’, this large hotel is an amalgam of modern additions to the oldest hotel in the historic maritime town. Florence Nightingale stayed here; her name can still be seen in the guest book displayed in reception. Coastal light floods in to contemporary public spaces; fresh-faced bedrooms and suites have harbour-facing seating, and colours of sea and sky. Food is served all day in the restaurant – perhaps local fish with lemon dill butter; 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.
