We stayed here for one night after booking over the phone as we needed a bed for the night at short notice, the staff are rather surly and the rooms and communal areas are tired and shabby. I asked for the wifi code and was told 'two ninety' in reply, I must be naive as I thought for a split... More

Upon arrival I was impressed with the frontage, close to the front and parking. However it was a little disappointing afterwards. The parking whilst not expensive is charged and to my surprise so was WIFI so we didn't bother with that as there are plenty of hotspots around these days. We were in room 108, a good sized ground floor... More

I booked a family room for two nights through Booking.com and the experience was disastrous. We were welcomed by unfriendly/unprofessional/scruffy and rude staff members who did not care about decent customer services whatsoever. We were charged £180 (initially booked at £150) plus hidden charges that staff memebrs advised were part of the 'unavailable' hotel policies and procedures..... We were given... More

Stayed here recently, and after reading the reviews we were pleasantly surprised. The room had been recently decorated, and although quite small was all we needed for a one night stopover. It was clean, quiet and had everything else you could want-tea/coffee making facilities, new LCD TV etc. It was also a short and pleasant walk to the beach and... More
