I booked this room from a website from Australia, myself, sister and my elderly mother and her friends. On arrival the out side of the hotel looked like something out of a horror story, when we went inside the office staff where having an argument with a customer, not a good first impression. The room was discussing, the floor, curtains... More

Room was smelly cramped and unventilated. No window (skylight in roof) that could be opened. Bathroom manky beyond belief with very obvious damp and mould. Dining room filthy and depressing - old dried food on all the chairs. Atmosphere of a funeral and everyone miserable especially the staff. Very Overpriced and owned by people who area a disgrace to the... More

We stayed 2 nights in August. The hotel had too many guests to cope with, which was reflected in all aspects of the service. The room carpet had not been cleaned - the last guests nail clippings on the floor. Breakfast places were not reset. Crockery, cutlery not provided even after breakfast was served - we had to go round... More

Stayed at Abbots Hotel B&B for two nights as a couple plus two adult friends. We had an upstairs large family room with double and 3 single beds which were clean and reasonably comfortable. The room was large enough with high ceilings and we were able to open the windows to get fresh air. The bathroom was basic with very... More

If your happy with cheap and cheerful this is it. Helpful staff. Excellent for access to town via bus. Eady walking distance to Ocean centre and local resturants. Could do with floor towel/mat. May need a fan if weather stays warm.

Where do I start????? Ever heard of Omens? Ever wished you had listened to them. The indicator was there, as we approached on the final turn onto the road where this place was situated I stalled my car. I am glad everyone laughed at this point because the rest of the story will make you cry!!!! We arrived at the... More

This was quite simply the worst hotel/B&B we've ever stayed in. The place looks horrible, our room was very far down in a basement which smelled very stale. The room was also tiny and definitely not the cleanest. We came early, left our bags and didn't come back again until after 10 in the evening and we had to let... More

Checked in, went to room, checked out within five minutes! Enough said..... from the awful old smell when entering to the most grubby room I have ever set foot in! This place is bad, it would probably just about scrape through as some kind of hostel
