Stayed here 3 nights on a cheap winter rate. Very friendly staff, very obliging. Hotel bar and lounge area really nice and spacious, ideal for relaxing with the paper,etc. Rooms tired, could do with some TLC but everything you need. TV reception not brilliant. Walking distance from a lovely cliff top view over the sea.

Booked via a Groupon voucher and really can't complain. Hotel certainly needs a refurb but the staff are friendly and helpful and the food is quite nice. Definitely worth the £99 I paid for 2 nights, dinner on the first with breakfast both mornings and late check out.

Stayed for just one night. The location is very good. Just a short walk away from BIC and the shops and restaurants. Hotel tho is very dated. Room was clean but in need of a serious update. In the morning we were disturbed 4 times by housekeeping which was annoying. Wouldn't stay here again. You get what you pay for... More

It did overlook the main road but as the hotel is set back the noise was low level. Good car park Our stay coincided with great weather... More

I stayed in this hotel with a group of 20 walkers in October 2015. Its a large hotel with many corridors so takes a little while to get know the location and the best route to your room. The carpets in the corridor near my room looked like it had seen a lot of wear but i understand that it... More
