Lovely relaxing hotel, with staff that are very helpful, sea veiw room, although not large was very well equipped, so relaxing to hear nothing but the sea at night, just a small fridge in the room could have made it better, so fresh milk could be kept or cold water. The choice of breakfast was really good gluten free bread...

We enjoyed a wonderful two night break at the Brudenell to celebrate my birthday last week. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient and our room was comfortable with a great sea view. The food in the restaurant was delicious and the service very good. We expect to return.

Lovely restaurant, and managed well by South Africans. Dogs permitted, yet not ideal if guest leave their dogs in room when they go for a stroll. Friendly staff and nice welcoming at reception. Very quiet.

Stayed just a single night - in order to recharge batteries run down by local family commitments. Originally booked a standard room but on discovering it was right next to the noisy lift we were offered a superior room with a sea view - with only a small surcharge. Massive room with a huge, comfortable bed - so no complaints...
