We spent three nights here in July 14. The room was fine (not flash - but fine), with a pleasant balcony and a lovely view of the bay. The room was clean, although the blankets had a couple of stains and the loo seat was not very well attached. The staff were super friendly and efficient and the food (we... More

A very dated hotel, saved by the excellence of the staff and the quality of the food! We stayed as part of a coach party, and from conversations with everyone it seemed that room quality varied quite a bit, some struck lucky. Our room was, however, very clean, if behind the times.

We were staying here as part of a coach trip. The hotel is in an ideal position, about 15 minutes walk from the town centre or a very short ride by regular bus service that stops near the front entrance.

We found all the usual amenities; tea making facilities, hair dryer, etc. we both thought that although dated, a little tired and in need of some modernising,... More

The hotel is fine apart from the fact you can't turn off the heated towel rail in the bathroom, coupled with the fact the bathroom window doesn't open and the bedroom window opens about an inch makes the room like a furnace! Luckily I've only had to spend two nights here! I've had to take cold baths to try and... More

Visited lunchtime on 19th June 2014. What a cracking lunch. I do not know his name but served by a gentleman who has been there 30 years and he really did know his stuff as the service he gave was excellent. We had a beef sandwich, tuna mayo sandwich and a couple of really decent wines all for £26.20. The... More
