The view is fantastic, the staff are friendly and helpful apart from the duty manager 15/04/14, who was rude and argumentative when we said that we had been unable to have our preferred bottle of wine or cocktails as it had been sunny!!

A great hotel, in a perfect location overlooking the sea. The beach is only a 10 minute walk away, with the pier and the main attractions a short stroll along the sea front. The hotel itself has everything you could want, for a reasonable price. We stayed in the family room, which has more than enough space for a family... More

Visited the cottonwood for a bite to eat on a Sunday afternoon with my mum and boyfriend. The hotel is really different, I like the way it's been decorated. It was a nice day so we sat outside on the terrace which is a real sun spot and has a view of the sea, we had a light lunch which... More

I booked this hotel for my boyfriends 40th birthday weekend and was called by the manager the night before our stay to advise the boiler had broken and decided to go ahead and stay as I'd chosen the hotel because of its reviews and lovely boutique decor. We found the hotel easily using sat nav. We stayed in room 20... More
