Went with 5 girls for 7 days and had an amazing time. Rooms very clean with everything you need and such a brilliant atmosphere. Everyone was so friendly! About 10 minute walk to beach and loads of great shops about. Will definitely be going again!

Stayed at the escape last year in the summer and can definatly say we will be coming back this summer too! Gerry and staff were so friendly and accommodating. Great chilled out bar. Room was cosy, quick easy but secure locking system to doors using a card! And an amazing view of the seafront from our window! All for a... More

When we arrived, the place was deserted and had to call a number and wait around to be let it. Were given a basic room with multiple bunk beds and a bathroom, which was alright as we weren't planning on spending much time there. The room was quite dirty though, especially the bathroom and shower and the bedsheets had a... More

Hi Katherine Sorry to hear that you was disappointed with your room. We recondition every room in the winter for the next season but sometimes by August the rooms just get a bit tired and yes sometimes the bedding has luminous paint stains but i can ensure you that all bedding gets changed every change of the room. I am... More

We stayed at the Escape over a long weekend with our university surf club and had just about the best time imaginable! Especially for big groups the hostel is a good choice since there is not only room for parking, but the bar downstairs is also ideal as a meeting point before heading out for dinner or drinks. The rooms... More

We visited in August, the most fantastic staff! Friendly place, welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Value for money was super and close to town. Amazing time here, staying here made our Hen weekend. Thank You! We'd all stay again.

So a group of 18 of us stayed in the Escape for a hen weekend and we had an absolute ball! We were all placed in a room together which contained bunkbeds. They were comfy enough and clean enough to enjoy a decent nights kip. There was a bathroom with 2 showers, 2 sinks and 2 mirrors. There was also... More

A great place to stay! As previous reviewers have mentioned The Escape advertises itself as a budget accommodation and was absolutely perfect for what we needed during our stag do weekend. Our rooms were simple but clean, everything was organising for our arrival and we enjoyed spending time in the bar as it is modern, comfortable and brilliant to start... More

As sign posted outside "The Escape - budget accommodation" doesn't try to be anything it isn't and that's why it works so well!! Superb location for your typical stag party, staff were extremely friendly & helpful and the manager/owner Gerry is a true gentleman, for being a very busy man he always made sure we were happy and asked if...
