We stayed at this hotel as a family of 3. Our request of sea view, full English breakfast & family room was accommodated perfectly. The room was beautifully presented and the bathroom was very clean. Comfortable, clean & central location. Ideal for a first time visitor!

The tv is big but no remote was given. The mattresses are quite comfy. The bathrooms are very old and the... More

Visited 'last minute' for overnight stay. We last visited17 years ago! Although the hotel is crying out for a revamp, the rooms are clean and adequate. The owners are lovely and all the staff welcoming. The breakfast was absolutely first class and the dining room was welcoming. The hotel was very much the same as 17 years ago it was... More

We have stayed at this hotel a few times before visiting with large group of people. The owners are a very nice couple and are always welcoming and friendly. We are... More
