Spent three night here. The room was very small and uninviting. Curtains flimsy. Windows seals broken and condensation in between panes, same problem in dining room. Bathroom cold as no heating there. Towels old. TV screen far too small and quality of picture unviewable. This hotel needs investment to bring it in line with their competition. Overpriced even having paid... More

The hotel was very quiet which was perfect for us and our little dog, Buster. Nice food, I recommend the fish and chips. The room was clean and had a... More

Excellent food HOWEVER, archaic plumbing resulting in scalded head Toilet door didn't close Soap in toilet and bedside lamp bulb deemed non-essential and worse I was treated as a pariah for asking for them. Still searching for the advertised free wi-fi Still waiting for the manager to come back to me regarding the bathroom fan.

Happy with our stay. Had an end of corridor bedroom, nice and quiet with excellent seaview (the rest of the windows appeared to have a less direct view of the sea). Nice breakfast, both food and the dining room with a seaview also. Good, attentive and quite friendly staff. Space in the car park. TV didn't seem to work properly... More

On both occasions we had a great time, Paul the Chef was exceptional and produced superb food. The absence of custard on the menu the first... More
