The image in on the website looks great. the Hotel is tired, worn tired furniture in the room, the bathroom is so small the door narrow not suitable for the physically challenged person. My room was Superior Double Room with Ocean View & Terrace, the terrace was a joke no privacy partition, in fact while my wife and I was... More

Stayed in this hotel for a weekend break (two nights) although the hotel was very busy with hen and stag party's we didn't find it too noisy. The most outstanding thing we felt was the quality of the good which was excellent.

We booked 4 nights via SuperBreak. The hotel is a little tired in places, but there appears to be an ongoing programme of improvements. We had a small double room, 107, at the back of the hotel complete with flat screen TV. The room was adequate for the price we paid, but like another reviewer, we suffered from noise from... More

The best thing about this hotel is that they have squash courts. Unfortunately they are poorly maintained (not clean, some lights out, etc.) The staff are a mixed bunch - some very friendly, some not good at all. The hotel is fairly run down and parking can be a problem. No wifi in the public areas.

The Front desk staff are very helpful and friendly. the swimming pool area is quite tatty and the area outside the sauna was slippery and wet, I really think the hotel can do better than just display a warning sign. The lockers in Gent's changing room were locked open with no keys and I had nowhere to lock my valuables... More

OAP Pitstop I stayed here for 3 days. The hotel is about 20ins walk from the town centre and is situated overlooking the sea. There is limited parking and on road parking is expensive. The hotel is marketed at the coach tour generation and everyday there are hoards of older people wandering the corridors. It feels like a nursing home.... More
