My partner and I visited for the Valentine's dinner. We live locally and fancied something a little different. We were welcomed by very friendly staff, a glass of bubbly and canapés. The set menu was good and we really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I will be keeping an eye out for more offers like this and be recommending it... More

Went to a good friends wedding here, the decor, staff, hospitality, atmosphere was all great! Staff very friendly and helpful. Good value for money. Location was perfect, easy to park nearby, seaside literally around the corner. Only thing was my room was a little cold, but other than that, amazing. Would definitely stay again and recommend.

Mid Dec -Turkey&Tinsel+theatre long weekend: Caring,efficient staff,nice food,perfect restaurant service,CLEAN hotel+nice room decor. Entertainment is good for a hotel of this size(some nearby hotels have none!). Receptionist will wise you up(&he speaks French rather well!), re local parking permits. No children's playroom in this hotel,but not needed by us. One street back from seafront&any Winter storms ,may be a blessing.

Stayed in December. A very good hotel for the price, staff were all very good polite and very helpful. Breakfast and evening meal were very good with a good selection on menu. Rooms were also very good. (Should not give this review as when I want to go back they maybe full) but credit where due.
