The hotel could do with a real update and this would help as it is in a good location. Car parking can be a bit of a problem as there is limited spaces outside the... More

This hotel has lots of plus points. The location is lovely with quite a number of the rooms having gorgeous sea views. The hotel has character, some nice period features and a cosy, warm feel. The negatives are the tiny lift and our shower was extremely poor... It took about ten minutes just to get wet! The staff were very... More

Stayed one night prior to going on a cruise, but it would be good to stay longed another time. Very welcoming, clean, central - walking distance to shops, cafes, restaurants and overlooking the cliffs for a sea view. Good breakfast, comfortable beds

We have stayed at Best Western Hotels around the UK and USA, so decided to book in for one night on our return from France. The hotel is dated but still has a lot of character, parking can be an issue but we managed to park on the sea front. The reception staff were efficient and friendly, we booked dinner... More
