We asked for a quiet room, but you can hear the television from the room next door and we were above the bar of the hotel. On returning to the room from a evening out, the... More

The hotel is clean, the rooms are very good with great seaviews, the clifftop position is a wonderful location, drinking customers outside are a little loud at night but thats to be expected afterall its a pub and restaurant with rooms, the restaurant menu needs to be expanded a little and vegetable added as a choice. Would use this hotel... More
