Good hotel with amazingly friendly staff. From receptionists to room groomers (LANA was so sweet and wonderful). No direct access to the beach but you can use beaches from nearby hotels). Easy access to Worthing and Dover beach. Nice Street food nearby and for the best flying fish cutters in town, head to "philippe's cafe and ice cream shop.
