Friendly staff, clean rooms, very good food, nice location. Took a coach party of 40 people. Luggage was taken to rooms quickly. Food was served warm and all orders were delivered to tables correctly.

A 3star wysiwyg hotel in a convenient location on the seafront with parking concessions. The rooms are spacious and basically equipped with a small tv and kettle, etc . The bed was one of the most comfy I've ever slept on, and the shower was powerful but compact. Traditional English breakfast was good except it lacked my favourite mushrooms. The... More

Just got back from a Voels North Wales coach trip, to the Oban Hotel and although I am always dubious about Hotels because of what food I can eat, I need not worry about this Hotel. The hotel was pleasantly clean and tidy, which is an achievement in itself after a long season. The staff was always pleasant and helpful... More

A really good little hotel. On seafront with front rooms which have one of the best sea views. A quiet (end of season) hotel, beautifully clean and decorated. No glamour, flashing lights or razz ma taz but very comfortable and relaxing. Bathrooms small but adequate. Lift to all floors. Breakfast traditional English, well cooked and quickly served. Not a big... More

It was a birthday trip - was I disappointed - I guess that is what comes of travelling all over the world.... More
