Was given a renovated room which was extremely smart with a comfy bed and lovely bathroom. Breakfast was plentiful with loads of choice. The only problem was the tv. After 10.30 at night the picture broke up on every channel except a couple. It was unwatchable.

Very nice hotel. Great location near to Station and Seafront. Great night porter that was not in a hurry to close the bar. Rooms are very nice; clean, good size and nice decor. Breakfast was cooked to order and 10 / 10. Well done to the owner and team at this hotel.

Stayed for 2 nights last week with the family. All 3 rooms had been refurbished to a very high standard. Extremely comfy beds, very tasteful decor and beautiful bathrooms. The mirror in our room (116) needs to be repositioned. It's right behind the bathroom door so beware when person in the bathroom comes out, you could get flattened ! The... More

Our check in on arrival was made easy and the receptionist Anna was very friendly and amenable. She was informative and helpful and had a fun personality and good sense of humour! The room... More

We have spent a night in this hotel in June. The hotel is in a good location, very close to the beach, about 5 mins and 10-15 minutes away from the city centre. Also 15 mins from the train station. The staff were welcoming and helpful. We had a breakfast in the hotel, they are offering good selection of food.... More
