An experience
The Chocolate Box Hotel is fun. Very well-positioned for the West Cliff facilities and with some of its own parking, it's a venue with a lovely atmosphere. The staff are kind and very funny, keen that everything should be just right for you. Breakfast was good (mine vegetarian) and I was glad I didn't over-indulge on the free chocolate on offer. I would happily stay again.

Short Stay
Service I can not fault the staff were amazing, friendly always on hand and with a smile. The gentleman who was around during breakfast was incredibly funny and so friendly every morning and was the highlight of our stay, I hope he gets recognised! Cost for the hotel was a little bit too high in all honesty, but happy to pay that for the service, only aspect that stopped me from putting a 5* review was the quality of the room, it was clean and always refilled every day with tea, coffee and chocolate however some minor works needed and a little TLC.
