Got there and told theirs no parking . A member of staff said just sit in your car and wait.Didn't realies that paying £125.00 means sitting in your car waiting. If the owners moved there cars would mean parking for guests. Also on the website it doesnt say it a public house . Waste of our time getting there. Will... More

Had 1 night in a family room for 4. The room was ideal with 2 seperate sleepng areas, the kids had proper single beds, not settee beds or camp beds. Position of the hotel is great, right on sea front. Staff were all very friendly. Bar/restaurant area was very pleasant, the food was reasonable. There was a good band playing... More

We booked the Spyglass and Kettle upon reading that the rooms have been refurbished. Having frequented the pub in the past, when it could have been described as a little shabby, it was good to hear that it had had a makeover. And it has downstairs in the bar, where a very good job has been done. However, our experience... More

After reading some not so good reviews we were a little worried but I can not stress enough how wrong those reviews are. Staff were lovely and helpful, food was lovely and the room also, really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again.

Stayed in room 4 for 1 night. Not a good experience, nowhere in bathroom for the towels to go (plenty of room to put towel holder on the wall). No hooks on bathroom door to put clothes when showering. Toilet roll holder behind you when it could have been put in front of you. Why would you pay £59 with... More

We arrived on Friday night hoping to get straight to sleep as we had to be up early Saturday morning. There was live music until gone midnight and our room was directly above the gents toilet so all we could hear was profanities and the hand dryer until 12:30 in the morning. The room itself is small, you have to... More
