We had a sea view refurbished room and both are to a very high standard and you can see they are putting as much effort into refurbishing the remaining rooms. Yes the areas not yet done look a bit tired but Rome wasn't built... More

Everywhere we went in the hotel we could see the continued improvements. If you want a comfortable... More

We arrived mid afternoon, parked up in the hotels car park, then went to check in, rang the bell at reception and were given a friendly welcome. We were shown where everything was downstairs, bar, lounge and tv lounge, where breakfast was served and given our key. The hotel is undergoing updating, but it is welcoming, very clean, warm and...
