Enjoyed our short stay. The hotel was clean our food tasty and well presented staff courteous and we look forward to our next stay. I feel that enough has been said and disappointed that I have to add another 69 Characters !!

Initially, I was quite impressed with the room we booked. Everything was clean and functional, nicely decorated and spacious. Unfortunately it was very noisy and cold... we then noticed there was a pretty large gap in one of the windows. We asked for the bartender for some help; he gave us some tape to mend the window... which we did.... More

This is a basically a Pub / Restaurant with rooms upstairs. If you book ahead you should be able to get a good (appropriate) room rate. The location is good, right opposite the cliffs on the seafront. The staff are all very friendly. The rooms have recently been refurbished although they are still a little 'tired'. To be fair, the...

Excellent service all week. I was on my own and felt comfortable in the friendly pub/restaurant. Dog friendly. Usually dined out for evening meal which the menu has a variety of courses. Gets very busy especially at weekends, so if in a party of people I would maybe book a table or go early evening. I believe there is entertainment... More

Very Poor for the money charged. I have stayed in many hotels and B&B's in the UK and abroad and this was very expensive accommodation. Value for money simply was not there. I suppose the location is a factor in the price

My son is a permanent wheelchair user with MS. He has no use in his legs at all. After selecting a suitable table for his wheelchair to fit into and ordering and paying for our meal, we were very rudely told to move by one of the staff as there were only three of us at a four seat table.... More

It is such a shame that this pub just does not get the idea of good customer service. It is not rocket science after all. Even a simple task like ordering a few drinks is not only extremely long and painfully slow, but the staff have an uncanny habit of choosing to serve their preferred patrons over anybody else, no...

Sunday drinks. After bad weather for a few days, the sun shone and everybody was out in force on a Sunday. Unfortunately the Pub was not prepared for this. No Beer and no staff. Absolute chaos. Dirty glasses and plates everywhere. What a shame as this Pub has been refurbished and could be a real gem! Needs a total overhaul... More
