We got a room at the hotel, where we had family staying, at very short notice and, although we stayed for only one night, the staff did all they could to make us feel welcome. They were excellent with our young children, always chatting to them to make them feel special. The food is excellent, as is the cleanliness. If... More

Upon arrival we were given a warm welcome by the lady on reception, and then given a tour of the hotel (I think by the manager) before being shown to our room. It was a (side on) sea view but you could still see the sea and beach from the bedroom and bathroom so no problems there, i'd imagine the... More

Food is varied and cooked to a very high standard and the chef is flexible to cater for anyone who would like to eat something off the menu. This hotel and all the staff are why we love... More

Room was large and very clean. En-suite was small and a little old fashion but it was clean and very useable. Food was fantastic. Hot and... More

We had a marvellous eight nights, lovely room with two lovely armchairs. Attentive staff and beautiful sea views. A few problems with parking.but ably sorted out by John. Food lovely and plentiful. Bathroom could do with a little updating.

A lovely, clean hotel in a pleasant location - just far enough out of town to avoid the noise and bustle of a holiday resort but close enough to give good access to it, and a very pleasant walk there along either the cliff top or promenade path. A very good breakfast, served quickly and with that increasing rare British... More
