4 night, five day self drive stay in this Daish owned hotel. Neither the accommodation nor the food was exceptional, but all in all, was very good value for money. Restaurant staff were efficient and hard working and there were a variety of choices for both meat eaters and vegetarians. They don't, however, yet offer vegetarian bacon nor sausage for... More

I found the hotel in need of updating as the fixtures and fitting were tired and need some general TLC. But ,having said that, we really enjoyed the break as the staff were excellent and very friendly and helpful. The food was really good with plenty of choice. The entertainment was reasonable with something for everyone. The location was pretty... More

Hotel very convenient for beach and excellent bus service. Food and service very good except for terrible fish and chips. Room 316 quiet but very tired with lack of ventilation but did have FREEVIEW. Parking free but easy to get boxed in. Entertainment very good beats the competition. Cleanliness very good throughout. Staff very friendly with special thanks to Olivia... More

The hotel is large and has good facilities. The food is good and the staff are most helpful. The place is clean if a little tired in places. I would go again. It's position near to the sea and only about half a mile from the centre is ideal.
