Each bedroom has a washhandbasin with H&C. Upstairs, the Bathroom boasts the original 1907 cast-iron bath on claw legs, still going strong after all these years. It’s much bigger and longer than a modern bath, and very comfortable too. You can see the sea from the bathroom; you just have to work out how.

Downstairs, the Empire State Room has a wonderful Aqualisa thermostatically controlled shower unit with a 9″ rainwater head. Why do we call it the Empire State Room? Because it took a little longer to build than the Empire State Building, and cost rather more.
