Good hotel, but a bit old, that's why I call it vintage as everything in our room dated back from the 80's. It is difficult to park around the hotel unless you pay for parking. Hotel sympa mais un peu vieillot. Parking gratuit difficile a trouver, sinon il faut payer.

My partner and i stayed here for the third time recently for one night. We were attending a concert at Leas Pavilion which is situated just across the road from the hotel. As before the staff were welcoming and friendly. We had a spacious room overlooking the gardens, the room itself was clean as was the bathroom although the decor... More

After arriving post a 3 hour journey. We checked in to a very clean room with a great view. Went downhill from there. Restaurant is abysmal with slow service (40 mins for a main course?) and a "medium-rare" steak that was so well done it should have its own urn... Saw many patrons disappointed as their meal choices weren't available.... More

We stayed here 1st - 2nd May 2015. The hotel is easy to get to and there is plenty of parking nearby. It is right by the sea and a park. The promenade, beach and park were spotless. The hotel itself may be old but it is clean and has all the amenities. The room as quiet & clean with... More

Stayed with my husband and son as we were visiting friends locally. Very tired and shabby from the outside. The awnings and signs need replacing or at least cleaning as they were filthy. Parking easy right outside but nowhere on the website (or indeed when I spoke to the hotel when booking) did they mention that you can pay £1... More

We stayed 2 nights with our 2 dogs. Very nice friendly staff. Loved the room. Very confi beds. Breakfast was brilliant. Felt like I was back on holiday with my parents 40 years ago. Parking was no problem. Public parking in front off hotel 1£ per day with permit from reception.

We stayed on a recent Saturday night at this cliff-top hotel. Most of the rooms do not look directly towards the sea but, with my partner's Best Western Platinum card, we were given a top-notch room on the top floor, with bay window and a direct sea-view. We loved this room, there was a small settee and comfortable chair in... More

Excellent location and good quality rooms, the breakfast was quite satisfactory and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had all we needed, The only problem is parking which is on street. On one night the nearest we could find a space was a ten minute walk away. Good job it was not raining.

The staff were very welcoming, I was viven a front facing room with a partial sea view. The room was clean and comfortable as expected with Best Western, but needed refreshing decor etcetera was dated. I didn't eat in th hotel in the evening so can't review the restaurant but enjoyed breakfast. I wouldn't have any qualms with staying again.
