          i booked a sea view and thats exactly what i got. Great breakfast

          the air con was not working on the first night and we really needed it as our room was in the eaves and had the sun on it all day

        • Group of friends

          Service and good standard of accommodation. Staff particularly efficient and helpful. .

          Felt a hotel of this calibre should not be charging for the carpark for guests. Rates are quite high.

          Excellent spa, in room entertainment

          Breakfast should have been included - the rate was too high

          On arrival, a very kind man took my car away and parked it for me, then delovered my luggage to my room for me - so helpful.On arriving back late on a couple of evenings, the night porters managed to get me a drink from the closed bar.

          This is a small one that was easily rectified but, when my room was cleaned whilst I was out, twice they forgot to fill up my milk supply, and once, the shampoo in the bathroom, not a major problem though as I had some of my own.

          The location, hotel standard and the overall appearance of the hotel.

          Car parking was a issue. There were limited spaces in the hotel complex but the staff did try and help as much as possible. Just be prepared you may need to park outside the hotel area. Was also very noisy around the 8am time when it seems like everyone was checking out!

        • Older travelers

          The hotel was comfortable and close to restaurants and the seafront. The staff were helpful. The breakfast was very good and the waiting staff helpful.

          We didn't sleep very well because the people above us were walking around the room an awful lot from 6.45 onwards and the floorboards were incredibly creaky and you could hear everything, from opening drawers to walking around.

          The staff were frienldy breakfast was good and the location was very good.

          Parking was difficult at times. The double room was very small and disappointing but the twin was lovely.

          The service was outstanding from the moment we arrived at the hotel.

          The shower head in the room was very weak and there were no option to change the type of spray. Also the room was quite dusty even though we asked for it to be cleaned every day.

          Car parking space limited (although wedding was on which may have made it busier than normal).

          Close to beach .

          Thought the room was tired Looking & basic for the amount charged per night .the mini bar in room was empty ! The shower was a poor flow, resulting in having to stand on the plughole to shower !

          The room and location were superb. Very friendly staff and a perfect location.

          The see view rooms are excellent!! I stayed in the Deluxe see view ones, but perhaps the elder people like the Cottage ones.

          Breakfast!! Emmm!!! Not so good compering other Marriott hotels!!

          Selected this hotel, because no other place offered a triple room we needed. Room itself was nice a spacious as one would expect £260 per night junior suite to be, -clean, with nice bed linen

          We ‘ve being waiting for the room for over 1.5 hr after check-in. Checked- in at 3pm , but were told that room was not ready. Returned back to the reception at 4pm-room still was not ready - , after waiting at the reception desk for another 15 min asked for a manager; spent another 15 minutes at the desk- manager was “on his way” .. Finally, we received a key at 4:35pm from apologetic receptionist, but not a manager. In the room- fridge did not work. Room was clearly made for 2 adults, not for 3. And breakfast was included for 2 people instead of 3.
