decided last min to stay over by the sea. Stopped here and got 2 rooms. I cannot fault the staff at all. They were very polite and welcoming. Check in was swift. 2 rooms we had were on different floors but that was not a problem. Both had side sea views. The rooms were executive and were massive! I believe... More

My partner booked it in advance as a surprise for both of us over Valentine's this year 2015 and was a bad experience for us. First of all the welcoming from reception was poor, then we had to find our own room at second floor. Totally NOT recommended for a disabled person as we had to go up two flights... More

I was having a cup of tea in the lounge with my mother last Wednesday when a group of overseas visitors came into the lounge and proceeded to unwrap several portions of fish & chips and eat them in front of us. The fish & chips left an unwelcome odour and we left. I can't imagine this behaviour being considered... More

Poor customer service, staff do as little as possible especially house keeping. Price for items in the hotel very high, residents have to pay £4 pp for a swim! £20 for a days car parking ( a day is minimum stay). Run down and shabby even the staff look like they can't wait to end shift, a smile on a... More

My husband and I had been to this hotel twice previously and we only really stayed because of the lovely sea view we had, this time we didn't have a sea view and after going up in the lift to the first floor, walking for what seemed forever having to go up and down stairs, through multiple doors and then...

Room - stained carpet, spillage down the wall from the previous occupant, scuffed paintwork. Kettle you have to fill from the bath as the wash hand basin is tiny. Unpleasant smell (damp?) Hallway - threadbare carpet Checkout- 10 am standard with £10 fee for an extra 2 hours. The vast majority will offer this for free. In summary, you are... More
