I stayed here with my husband who was on an official trip. Because the hotel boasts free wifi on their website, I decided to accompany my husband for a week thinking I'd be able to get my work done at the hotel. To my dismay not only was there no wifi in the rooms, even their public spaces had next... More

We stayed for 5 nights in the family room at the hotel. The room was very spacious and clean. Apart from being a little hot in the room, everything else was to our satisfaction. Every member of staff that we came in contact with were polite, friendly + very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. It's nice that... More

On arrival we were disappointed that there was very limited parking and that we could park on the road, if we could find a space. Our room was on the 3rd floor and was small. The bathroom was awful with mould on and the... More

The staff were great very helpful and friendly. The location also excellent,but the hotel needs some serious money being spent on it, I suffer from emphysema, we had a twin room that was fine apart from the windows only opening about 4inches and I really need air to help me breathe, a bathroom that measured about 6foot square and a...

We booked into this hotel for 2 nights B & B. The room was adequate but could have done with a bit of TLC to bring it back to a good standard. The curtains were paper thin and the advertised free wifi didn't work in the room.The location is superb with direct access to the beach which has a wonderful... More
