My mum visited as a member of a coach tour. She says: A fabulous single room in a tastefully furnished hotel with comfortable lounges. Excellent staff service - a family run hotel. Well stocked bar at good prices. Most excellent food, friendly and impeccable service. Fully recommend

My dining/walking group of sixteen enjoyed a really excellent weekend at this hotel, at a very reasonable price. The location on the seafront is excellent, the hotel was warm and comfortable, and the food absolutely top-notch. We eat out a lot, and cannot fault the imaginative and delicious menu at this hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant, and... More

Food was excellent value for money and comfortable surroundings. Took coffee in one of the very comfortable lounges and were the only people in there. Wine was reasonably priced. Although the room was on the small side,... More

Stayed at this hotel by chance, but great find. The receptionist was excellent, sorted our accommodation and invited us to join them for complimentary afternoon tea. Our sea view room was exactly what we wanted and nicely decorated, as was the hotel - it seemed that the whole hotel has been refurbished recently. Dinner was 4 courses, served efficiently and...
