We had no alternative so we paid - it was 120 all together - before viewing. this included two 10.00 tickets to the... More

If you don't walk so well ask for a room near the entrance. Lots of winding corridors and doorways. Our beds were uncomfortable but room was warm, clean and spacious. Restaurant can be chaotic having a different table each time but we never had to wait. Food is basic selection but excellent quality, tasty, and plentiful. Price was acceptable and... More

Hotel is like a maze not easy locating your room for the 1st time, only 1 lift and quite a lot of stairs. Room was extremely hot at all times which was great as my husband does... More

Room was warm and comfy and of a standard to be expected of a 3 star hotel. Good evening entertainment. Our only criticism were the number of steps. To get... More

I was given an accessible room that had a wet room en-suite. Staff very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately no wheelchair access to the entertainment area (although there is a chair lift) so access still needed there. Quirky hotel with ground floor above one and two! Close to seafront and not far from train station. Many places I went to in... More
