This is a hotel stuck in the 80's. We went there for sentimental reasons, but the standard of the rooms and other facilities was only average at best. It is a hotel suitable for those on a budget, rather that those who want to splash out. The redeeming feature is its location. The view overlooking the bay is spectacular.

Location of hotel is excellent . Basic but clean needs upgrading . Room and bathroom small but ok as only in room for sleeping . Everyone friendly and couldn't do enough for us . No WiFi in room which didn't suit our 13 year old .

Just stayed for a night, small but clean room. Slept well, although upon waking in the morning heard a lot of internal noise, think my room was underneath the kitchen as heard lots of clinking plates!

Everything about this hotel was top notch, with the exception of the tiny bathroom. Brilliant location on the sea front, and next to the railway station. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was tidied up everyday without even asking.

Stayed here last weekend we expected it to be basic after reading reviews. Firstly on arrival postcode is misleading or wrong as our sat nav took us the wrong way we knew it was near the grand hotel so we used that instead. When we got there parking very difficult but we managed to get a space in the coach... More
