I stayed at this hotel with a group of friends for a Turkey and Tinsel weekend. The hotel is very central and well placed for everything. The food is very nice, with plenty of choice and the waiter service excellent......nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are clean and we had a brand new shower room, obviously refurbished. There is... More

We went for early Christmas festivities. There are many reasons why I would not go back to this hotel. The location is super. Not far to walk for the town centre bars & restaurants. I have found parking to be an issue at Bay Hotels before. This one was the worst yet as the car park was a long way... More

Location could not be better. Public areas have been refurbished in a modern yet sympathetic style. Our room was on the front at first floor level, with a terrific view over the Marina. Whilst it was a little tired it was a reasonable size, had adequate storage space for a short stay, was clean and everything worked. The food was... More

I can really add the same comments that others have made, the hotel is tired and in need of a bit of an up grade. Our room was lovely and spacious, overlooking the seafront and observation wheel, the shower was feeble and lukewarm. And sheets and blankets ? In the 21st century?? Take them to your local dogs home and... More
