We have just returned from a Sunday – Sunday break at The Bonair. Booked it after reading some reviews and also web search. From arriving to leaving, everything was very good. We arrived quite early on Sunday and were greeted by the owner with a coffee and tea. We were then shown into the dining area to see what table... More

The rooms are very small and to my horror I had one blanket on the bed, with sheets and a rather tired bed spread, I found the bed very hard and uncomfortable, the towels were not changed until the day before I left, this I was told was to protect the environment, I found it unacceptable, you had 3 tea...

Ideal location over looking sea front. Room spotless clean worth paying bit extra for balcony room as u feel like you are sitting on the front. Staff and management very friendly nothing too much trouble. Only downside was breakfast not much quantity and wasn't very hot.

I've stayed at the Bonair 10 times in the last 3 years. That, of course, speaks for itself. Excellent value for money, friendly staff, and management/owners who go the extra mile when guests have problems. Their assistance when my car broke down en route and I had difficulty getting parts for repair in time for my return home was exceptional,... More

Spent a lovely 4 days here last week on a Brent Thomas coach holiday. The hotel is in a perfect position on the sea front just a short walk fro the town centre. Although it only has 2 stars I was pleasantly surprised, much better than I expected. Our room was not huge but it was adequate with plenty of... More

I have just returned from a Tinsel & Turkey weekend at this lovely hotel, Once again the Hotel was decorated beautifully. The staff just go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. I recommend this Hotel to any one at any part of the year.

The seventh time I have stayed here and I've just booked up for no 8. The hotel is sold out this time of year, so booking in advance is essential. The staff and management are brilliant. The hotel is clean and comfortable and the food is delicious plain and simple. I love this place. May only be a three star... More

Stayed between the 19th and 23rd of September. Firstly, the hotel's location is great. The general interior of the hotel is okay for the price paid, same with the meals (frozen veg, tinned soup etc). However, this is what I expected from budget hotels as I stay in them often. My room however, was terrible. It was tiny and about... More
