Built in the 1890’s as a seaside retreat for a high ranking naval officer, the original building that forms the heart of the hotel had suffered from a great deal of ‘less than sympathetic’ alteration during the 1960s and 70s. We took over the hotel in 2007 with the aim of restoring as many of the original features as we could while creating a stylish and unique environment offering all the amenities expected by the modern visitor.
Carsten studied both Hotel Management & Design in his home country of Germany, while I started working life as a Chef & Restaurant Manager. We have aimed to use this experience to create something that stands apart from the normal UK seaside hotel offering, both in terms of facilities and service.
We hope you will choose to stay with us and will like what we have done.
