Stayed for 1 night and received a warm welcome. Room was lovely and clean and a good selection at breakfast. If your travelling to Skegness I would recommended this hotel on site parking and just a short walk from the sea.

We ( myself and my wife ) didn't arrive here till 10-30pm. We were greeted by 'Annie' who had waited around as she knew we would be arriving late. We were shown to room 7 on the 1st floor. A small but cosy double room with en suite shower. The bed was comfortable and must say I really slept well.... More
