CHARACTER & STYLE

The white exterior screams traditional seaside hotel, but the interior has been thoroughly modernised. Calming colour schemes are brightened up by fun splashes of yellow, orange and blue. The gardens overlook the water and large windows make the most of the views.

THE FACILITIES

Most guests come here for the spa - small but well-equipped, it has an indoor pool, sauna, steam room and salt room. Treatments are available. Kayaks can be hired directly from the hotel gardens, while the sun loungers overlooking the water are very appealing for relaxation.
