Although this Hotel needs some TLC the staff make up for its shortfalls. They were helpful, friendly and went the extra mile to make our visit a good one. The meals were excellent, very hot, a good choice and huge portions. If you have mobility problems please mention when booking as the lift does not service all floors. Worth paying... More

Ok price, but old hotel with old guests. Friendly staff! Why do these kind of hotels exist? Why not doing regular painting, renovation, new furniture etc.? This way, one day, only busses with coffee trip tourist will come. Its actually a nice location with a nice view. A pity.

A theatre trip and overnight stay with friends was made more pleasant by a helpful, friendly staff, and a clean and comfortable room with a lovely view. The bathroom was clean and had a good shower with a large bath towel and hand towel and soap. The bed was comfortable with two pillows and even though the room was basic,... More

Having searched the internet I had hoped that this was a genuine bargain but the old addage 'you get what you pay for' holds true. This hotel is ideally located close to the town centre, albeit a healthy 10 minute walk away (taxi recommended for the less fit/able), and commands marvellous views across the bay from the lounge balcony. But... More

this hotel offered us good value for money for the price we paid. cleanliness in the room could have been better (hairs in bathroom, dust, marks on bedsheets) public areas seemed clean though although we didn't explore this much. The room was very dated and the shower took a very very long time to get hot. the bed was rather... More

Up side to the hotel was the view from the balcony and the room was comfortable. Down side was the hotel needed up dating. Balcony was very 1970s and needed painting and work done before the season started. The hotel had a feeling of being something years ago but having gone to seed now. Apparently there had been a swimming... More
