Stayed here recently with a friend for a weekend visiting the attractions. Perfect location for the pleasure beach and piers although bars/clubs etc about 20 minute walk. Staff were friendly and welcoming, always chatty and allowed us to leave our cases in reception for the day after check out. Bedrooms clean and cosey, comfy beds and dark curtains. Breakfast was...

We stayed here last minute after cancelling another, We really liked the location, the Hotel itself is very friendly, very clean and the staff was great. I'd also mention it's got a very nice family room. The location is right next to the promenade, with plenty of entertainment nearby, we really enjoy this weekend stay. I'd also like to mention,...

Location of this hotel is fine and its a very clean place with very friendly owners. The breakfast (not included in the price, was basic. Orange juice was warm and a single rasher of almost cooked bacon. Id not recommend this hotel but neither would I say you shouldn't go there. Our major complaint really is that the hotel signage...
