We stayed for 2 nights in a ground floor family room, and although the decor was a little tired and the toilet seat wobbly, it was, in... More

Everything you needed for a decent sleep, enjoyed breakfast, nice to be next to the sea and have a sea view. Everything I was expecting but a little more. Short walk from restraunts and a few different bars. Their was a tramp asleep outside on the first night though but not a major issue

Walls all marked and shabby. Toilet pan had a crack. Bathroom tiles and seals need attention. Come on Travel Lodge. You have wonderful staff doing a great job, but... More

Stayed here in June/July for one week. Room on 1st floor overlooking car park. Room and bathroom both clean. Very hot weather however with 2 windows open the room was cool. No undue noise from car park or road. Staff very pleasant
