The hotel is well located right on the seafront and close to amenities in the town. Staff were helpful and friendly. Room was OK, warm, clean and comfortable but the water pressure in the shower wasn't strong enough. Breakfast was first rate. Parking permit was provided for on street parking just outside the front door. Overall OK but the whole... More

This hotel is probably targeted at the summer beach tourist, so giving a winter assessment is probably a little unfair, but I stayed here for two nights and found the location excellent for the town and beach, parking was free and easy, and the room was clean and comfortable. The whole hotel is looking it's age a little, but the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights from 2nd January. Whereas the staff are helpful & friendly we found the Hotel itself to be in need of a lot of refurbishment internally. The bedroom was large & spacious,unfortunately the 'double bed' turned out to be 2 singles pushed together,not that comfortable either as the mattress was well past being replaced,the bed springs...

We stayed at the end of October in the honeymoon room. It is spacious and has a 4 poster bed. The bathroom is lovely with a fabulous Jacuzzi bath. The room overlooks the amusement park and the beach. It is a perfectly located hotel for town and the beach. The only let down is the breakfast as it is cheap... More

We had a 2 night stay from 15th December 2014 and were completely satisfied with the standards here. The room (no. 21), whilst not particularly spacious was comfortable and clean, with a nice view of the beach and the sea. The hotel is very conveniently situated - easy walk to the town centre. Staff were friendly and helpful and particular... More

We booked in for two nights although we live only a short distance (Bournemouth) away. It was a pleasant break for my husband who is recovering fro an illness and we didn't want to be too far from home. The hotel staff were very helpful, polite and attentive. The first evening we chose just to have starters and the second... More

Stayed here for a night in November. Room was on the small size. However it was clean and the bed was comfy. Only complaint was the heating was on all night and it was very warm. Hotel was right on the sea front. For a £20 refundable deposit they gave you a parking permit. We were very lucky to get... More
