Stayed here for 2 nights on business, room 240 had the best view I've seen in a long time. Nice location, good value. Shower was a bit weak as was the general water pressure in the bathroom. All the staff we're extremely helpful. Slight pain when I ordered just toast for breakfast, took 40 minutes as they do it in... More

Staff were very nice and were always helpful. Never ate at the hotel so cannot comment about the food, however didn't think the menu had enough variation. As... More

We stayed in a premium room and it was clean, welcoming and had great room service; however, it was so small we barely had room for our luggage. We kept stubbing our toes on things! But overall very good and nice, caring service. Restaurant/bar had great food and drink too.

The staff at the Great Western bar / restaurant are always lovely, but I don't know what's happened to the food. It's over-priced and bland. The menu has changed in recent months and is now very poor value for money. The terrace has great sea views, so nice to stop for a drink, but sadly can't recommend the food.

I visited the Great Western with my girlfriend in July and spent 3 days there before heading off to Devon. In contrast to the restaurant downstairs, the hotel is dated and needs serious renovating. Our room which was a budget room wasn't big enough to swing a cat in, looked like it was last decorated in the 70's and was... More

Myself and my partner have just got back from an amazing 2 night stay at this hotel. Originally we were staying in a double room however when I booked it through booking.com I had mentioned that this was a getaway to celebrate our recent engagement and anything they could do to make this special would be most appreciated.
