Had a wonderful stay at the hotel and spa.. The 3 course meal was absolutely beautiful! A lovely room with brilliant facilities! Wonderful staff and great night time entertainment in the hotel would recommend to everyone to stay at any point in the week.

On a spur of the moment visit we decided on the royal .The price was reasonable at 52 pounds a night with breakfast included .On first glance looked very nice but after a closer look it looked tired and in need of a lick of paint .When we eventually retired after a meal at a local Chinese restaurant we were...

Having just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel I have to say that although it is faded it is charming. I saw how hard that all the staff were working and I really appreciated this. I have to mention the lovely lady in the bar, I don't know her name but she was slim with short dark... More

We have just returned from a one night stay at this lovely traditional hotel. The first room we were offered was at the back of the hotel and was a bit dated with a view of a brick wall. The Receptionist kindly offered us another room overlooking the sea. The entertainment was very good and the breakfast was plentiful. The... More

Me and my partner re visited this hotel for my birthday weekend on 20/03/15 for 2 nights and it's a great hotel. The staff are helpful, the rooms are nice and it's in a great location. The only down side to staying this time was that the bed was hard, the room was abit cold and it was very noisy... More

We booked a family room for an overnight stop out of season.... Our room had several issues including lights without bulbs and a fuse box we had to keep resetting.... Pleasantly surprised at the entertainment supplied on the Saturday night, we had two children with us, and although not aimed at them, the cabaret made for a good evening in... More

Well.......i suggest you stay here with a very open mind. Our rate of 47.00 for a double with full breakfast and use of the (ahem) 'spa' included was cheaper than a b&b so couldn't complain really. However, the place is pretty unloved, lightbulbs missing, stained towels (although clean), thick dust everywhere, spilled paint on the very worn carpets etc etc.... More

Very welcoming reception on check in, and that is as good as it got !!! Dried vomit on the lamp standard on bedside cabinet which had dribbled down to form a ring of more dried vomit !!! After freshening up opened the towel to dried brown excrement. Made a call to reception who sent the very pleasant "jack of all... More

Just returned from 2 nights here. Last year was so bad that I was given an upgrade to a suite on the first floow overlooking the sea. Sounds wonderful. In reality it was pretty poor. The heating was poor, they must know this as there was an electric heater in the bedroom, luckily as the one radiator whn on was... More
