Here's a hotel that has the period feel of an Agatha Christie novel yet is shot through with contemporary flair. There are beautifully tended grounds, complete with heated outdoor pool (in summer), while over the road the garden climbs a hillock to the Riviera Terrace, where tables overlook the bay. The rooms are spacious, with giant comfy beds, flatscreen TVs and pristine bathrooms, and you can still take afternoon tea here, just as Queen Victoria did – and the cakes, scone and sandwiches are to die for: no wonder you need to book a table to get in. There's also a classy bar and restaurant.
