I visited this hotel last weekend. We arrived at 5pm and unpacked. Got ourselves sorted and had a drink in the bar before dinner. Had a great meal and spent the rest of the evening in the very comfortable bar, with their very friendly barman, Chris. Next morning we had a brilliant full english breakfast the went off exploring.

Had a lovely stay at this hotel. Comfy, great food. Superb service. Clean, friendly & great venue. Highly recommend. Panoramic Sea views, well as it's on the beach it would! Sit out on the patio with a glass of wine and take in the sea views.

Just returned from a weeks break here. The staff were helpful and friendly. Room was lovely and breakfast was good. Just can't fault it, and the location was stunning. For the reviewer who was woken at 1.10am. Yes there was an incident on one night, which was quickly sorted. The only noise for the rest of the seven nights I... More

Warm welcome upon arrival. Evening bar staff very friendly. Bedroom clean with a great seafront view. Mattress hard, woke will a painful back. Breakfast was ok, but disorganised and fried egg was cold. Rudely woken at 1.10am with a female banging on a bedroom door and shouting.

I took our family of 15 out to dinner to celebrate a birthday. This must be quite a challenge for any restaurant but they excelled themselves. Food was excellent enjoyed by all, the service was timely and attentive to everyones needs. The food was well presented, portions sizes were substantial and represented good value for money. Would eat here again.

The food was brilliant, the staff were excellent and very attentive and professional. The staff were accommodating for our fussy eaters (ordered off the lunch menu at dinner time) and allergies (Im allergic to brown sugar) certainly recommend and eat there again. Home made food and portions were substantial and perfectly cooked

The location is fantastic - only a few steps from the beach. I stayed in the single balcony room on the second floor which was pretty and with a beautiful view. My mother had a sea view double room which was also very light and attractive. Sitting on the spacious balcony with a cup of coffee in the early morning... More
