The Chocolate Box Hotel
We booked in as we were seeing a show at the conference centre. Perfect location - 5 minute walk to the centre and 5 mins to the seafront. Shame we didn't have time to look around a bit longer but will definitely come back again. Parking was fine but I can imagine it would get difficult in high season but the staff were very accommodating.

The room was clean & had a lovely big comfy bed. Bathroom wasn't very big, water was hot but pressure on shower was dismal. Breakfast was good. Friendly helpful staff. We stayed in room 5 which overlooks a busy road which kept us awake at night.

Lovely stay
Have stayed a couple of times at this hotel. The staff are helpful, attentive and friendly. Our room was clean, warm and had everything we needed. We had the deluxe double on the ground floor. Breakfast was plentiful. Cooked to order main breakfast and buffet cereal, coffee, yoghurts, etc. We will be returning. Ten minute walk down to the town square and 5 minute walk to beach. The hotel is on a hill but there is a bus stop a short walk away.
