Booked in for 5 nights. Problem with fan noise from room above me on first night - (I was in room 16.) Moved to another room and had an excellent stay. Breakfasts are fantastic! Due to first night problem was charged for four nights not five - thanks Julia! - (I donated the 'refund' to SENSE (Deaf-Blind Association.)

I stayed here for four nights at the height of the season. I had a single room which, not unexpectedly, didn't have a sea view, but the garden view was good, and as it was on the quiet side of the hotel, meant that I could leave the window open all night in the warm nights and not be disturbed...

We had a weekend stay at this hotel in a good spell of weather. We had an upgraded room with a very good sea view. The room was a bit small but adequate for our needs. We were particularly impressed by the staff. All were cheerful and very helpful which made for a pleasant experience. All in all a good... More

Small interior room but as expected for the price paid in high season. Good location, 15 minute walk into town centre but steep walk back so not great for some. Lovely beach short walk away with all amenities. Breakfast very good although didn't cater well for gluten free.

My husband and I recently stayed in Room 11- a double classic room for 2 nights. The room was a good size with a partial sea view and was clean and pleasantly decorated. We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times before and were pleased to see that there have been some updating and improvements. The breakfast was... More

Staff were very friendly & helpful. Stayed in a single room (rm 21) for 2 nights - it was a bit small (esp for price), as was the shower room, but they were both very clean. Bed was very comfortable & had an excellent night's sleep. The hotel is a bit of a maze so I sometimes had trouble finding... More

We stayed for two nights in two family rooms, one deluxe with a balcony (amazing views) and standard room. Decors are quite dated, but we didn't really mind it too much as it gives the hotel that seaside feel to it. Deluxe room was spacious, one queen size bed and two singles, seating area, balcony and ensuite bathroom. Standard room... More
