This was used as a base for a coach trip around the Lake District. Although Morecambe isn't a particularly exciting resort, we were very satisfied with the hotel, which is located across the road to the seafront, not far from the town centre. We had a room between the 1st and 2nd floors, which means going up a short flight of stairs from the lift. The furniture and carpet in the main bedroom were in immaculate condition, very clean. A jug/kettle (with tea & coffee), hairdryer and a small flat-screen TV are provided, with plenty of storage space. Although the bathroom was a little cramped, we had no problems using the combined shower/bath.
Foodwise, there was plenty of choice at breakfast, with everything you'd expect from a cooked breakfast (apart from mushrooms), plus cereals, fruit, yoghurt, croissants, and tea/coffee/juices. At dinner, there is a choice of 2 meat, 1 fish, 1 vegetarian dish, or salad. The desserts included at least one hot dish, plus ice cream and cheese & biscuits, followed by tea & coffee in the bar area. The staff were very helpful, and were always able to find an alternative if you didn't fancy anything on the menu.
Entertainment (at least when we were there) was aimed at the OAP age group, so expect Bingo, plus 50's and 60's music. There is free wifi avialable, which we were able to use in our room.
All in all, a nice hotel, and one we'd use again if in the area.
