Booked a last minute get away over easter bank holiday, receptionist and bar staff very pleasant and helpful upon at arrival. Car park opposite is free from 6pm till 9am, limited on street parking outside. Room 22 was clean and adequate for £80 per night inc breakfast and guest tray, and had fantastic view overlooking street, boats moored and seafront.... More

Stayed for two nights last weekend whilst on a golfing break with the lads. Good points were the breakfast and food in general, good selection of beer and helpful staff. Not so good points was the tired, somewhat dirty accommodation and uncomfortable bed and poor signage to the room it was like a rabbit Warren. I would return again with... More

This is a pretty standard seaside hotel. The location is very good, on the waterfront street. Daytime parking is plentiful but metered. Night parking is free. The hotel is clean and fairly old, with narrow staircases and standard compact rooms. We paid £80 for the night in 4/14. Our room was on the street side with a good view of... More

Stay 12/12/2014 for 2 nights. Room no.6, bed and breakfast. On arrival, we were quickly and pleasantly greeted by a lady in reception, who dealt with our arrival efficiently. We were escorted to a very comfortable and spacious room with stunning views of the bay. All our enquiries were dealt with quickly. The room featured a decent sized flat screen... More

Stayed for two night and didn't sleep a wink! On the first floor and people above were unbelievably loud, clearly stomping in one place on purpose to make lot of noise. Walking around and talking very loud late in to the night! First arrived no one was at desk. If you are in the far side you can hear either... More

We recently stayed for 8 nights. This hotel and its staff were wonderful. Nothing too much trouble for them. spotlessly clean and reasonably priced. As a discerning travel agent I would highly recommend this hotel. It is not 5 star but has its own charm and the location is unbeatable. 100 yards in any direction gives a choice of many... More
