Individual guest reviews

  • Location near to town and the Beach is a 10 min walk is very nice. The hotel is exvellent very clean staff very friiendly, good price even we booked at the last minute and excellent decoration and colour choice. The rooms are well equipped and spacious, many comfy sofas to chill out on.

    The car park was always overcrowded due to a large convention taking place, the bathroom had a range of broken tiles and the ceiling was dirty, the toilet flush was next to useless. The breakfast was awful and receptionist upon arrival was rude. The swimming pool was too cool.

  • Location was good for beach, hotel was spacious, friendly and quiet, the Reception staff were very welcoming. The room was comfortable and towels were large and fluffy. Breakfast just was needed and dinner option and were surprised by the quantity of menues available. The pool was adequate and excellent.

    Some areas tired and worn, car park not big enough, althought not near the sea. Poor value and poor quality, bathroom small, bar closes early even on new years night. Toilet roll holder broken.

  • Nice quiet location, good value and the staff are friendly and helpful.

    The hotel would benefit from a few more activities for the younger children for the evenings, the water pressure very low and bar service could be slow.

  • Good location on the bus route into town and a 12 minutes walk to the seaside, room, general decor,facilities, food and excellent staff all make this Hotel a pleasure. Complementary iced water and squash available in reception.

    The breakfast itself again was of a very poor quality, the beds were clean and tidy.

  • The location was lovely and breakfast and service was efficient and good quality. The staff were friendly, the price for a family room was competitive.

    Much of the hotel needs upgrading and shower useless. Poor standard of food for the money and one receptionist very rude. Pool desperatelly needed to be cleaned.

  • Public area well maintained and nice hotel. Very good price and friendly staff. Clean & spacious rooms and the bar never closed. Breakfasts improved from previous visits and the swimming pool is excellent.

    The decor is very old and dated and appears to be grubby, poor water pressure, hard work to have a shower.

  • Location child friendly and good welcome. Staff were very accommodating and the hot water took a long time to run and was slightly run down. The breakfast was very nice.

    Hotel in general was perfectly adequate and room was freezing. Towels were a dirty white and as thin as, the food in the restaurant was great. Receptionist was a bit robotic.
