Brilliant, well run hotel, excellent service with friendly and helpful staff. Would highly recommend if you are staying in the area. Comfy beds, very clean and good value for money. Pool is an extra bonus.

Beachfront location, budget accommodation. Stayed in family room with one double and two singles. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast served in dining room, good choice of options. Very impressive table service at breakfast, thank you. Generally clean, outdated decor, but appropriate for the price. Our room required some upkeep (holes in bathroom ceiling, edging from bath surround falling off).... More

We booked 2 rooms and had 205 and 208, I can only say avoid 205, it was 'very tired' it needed more than a lick of paint, the ceiling needed... More

I would recommend the Bedford Hotel. It is on the seafront with some great sea views. It is 5-10minutes walk along the esplanade to the centre of town. It is a 10 minute walk from the North Railway Station. The hotel is very clean. I found the hotel to be quiet with no noise from either the streets or other... More

Having booked recently for me and my other half, I could not fault it the owner was on the front desk and really made us feel welcome. Room was fab and service was second too none. Really worth a visit and having a indoor pool was fab too. Just remember it's the top end of the pier and 5 minutes... More
