Location quiet, very close to cricket ground (only a few minute's walk), Peasholm Park, 7 minute walk to town centre shops. Staff helpful, buffet breakfast, but used items cleared away quickly, appreciated room with sea view. Complimentary tea and coffee flasks left out during the evening, nice touch. Parking limited in hotel car park, but only £6 for 48 hours... More

We found though that the staff were excellent and helpful, the room was clean plus functional (room 15... More

This hotel requires a lot of work to bring it upto date. Needs a good lick of paint and the rooms need a re-vamp. It's the first time I have rolled out the bed!!

If you want luxury, don't go here, but we paid £49 for 2 adjoining rooms -a single and a double. We knew it wouldn't have a sea view for the price, but there was outside. Yes some wallpaper was coming off, tiles were cracked, furniture was chipped and the cold tap kept coming apart but we just stayed one night... More
