We arrived to find a very long queue to checkin with lots of noise from lads with drinks. Not a good start. The staff were rushed off their feet trying to cope with only 2 staff to check everyone in despite many other staff there. The Hotel is very tired and in need of a real good clean and remodelling....

The hotel is well past its best. It looks tired from both the outside and inside. Our room was small, had a window with no view, it faced into a small courtyard looking at brick wall and other windows. It cannot have had any refurbishment for years, badly in need of it. Heard many other customers grumbling about it. It... More

Well it's certainly true that this hotel is in need of some serious TLC but get past the first impression and look beyond the slightly off putting entrance and with an open mind you will be pleasantly surprised. Check in was courteous and efficient. Good directions helped us find our room without a problem. We had booked a sea view... More

This hotel is shabby at best. Grubby and in need of a face lift everywhere. On arrival staff were rude and totally unhelpful, they made you feel like it was an inconvenience to attend to you. The room was grubby no blind at the bathroom window! there was an old shoe and can on top of the bay window on... More

We have been going to this hotel for at least the past 4 years and 4 or 5 times a year but, after the experience of the last 3 days, will be looking for somewhere else. On our 2nd night we were in the cabaret room and were confronted by what I can only describe as a mad woman, accompanied... More

By no means was this as bad as some of the reviews would lead you to believe, I am not saying it was perfect either, but for the price it was great value for money, even the parking at £3 a day was reasonable (I have paid twice the price for parking in Blackpool). We arrived on Sunday at 10:15am... More

After reading the reviews I had decided that if things were not up to scratch I would leave immediately! I was pleasantly surprised! The reception staff were friendly and let us park our car and book in early. The public areas of the hotel are beautiful but in need of a little TLC. My room was lovely, smelt nice and... More
