My family spent 5 days at The Aqua Hotel in late August and found the staff very friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean and we had a partial view of the sea, quite lovely. We enjoyed the full English breakfast daily and had several wonderful dinners in the restaurant. The food was lovely and very reasonably priced. The... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved every minute. We were warmly welcomed by the staff. We had a seaview balcony room and the views are breathtaking. The hotel is very clean and has everything you could wish for. We found the food excellent and very reasonably priced. The chef is brilliant and obviously has a passion for creating... More

The welcome was good,the info that we had to pay for parking was not,although offered reduced rate if we paid in advance 3 days parking... More

A “ spur of the moment “ decision and you booked a 7 day stay at The Aqua. Of course due to The Aqua’s popularity you could only book one of the last few rooms available and unfortunately you could not have a Sea View or Seafront Balcony Room because understandably they are normally the first to be booked. On... More

Having had a couple of meals here while on holiday earlier in the year, we decided to return with our parents for a weekend stay. We were not disapointed. Once again the food was first class, between the family we have now sampled almost all the menu and everyone agrees you would be hard pushed to find a better restaurant.... More
