Initially we had been allocated to room 31 which it seems is over a very noisy kitchen. Not only could we hear the conversations of the staff below but it sounded as if they were constantly moving heavy items. The room was very hot even with the window open. We asked to move to a quieter room and were given... More

Nice clean room with a sea view, and very good value. Shame there was no entertainment on Easter Saturday night ! When we asked the barman if we could get some food at 8.30pm he abruptly answered no not at this time of night! Strange I thought we were guests in a hotel! I can understand some hotels not offering... More

Stayed as part of a coach party. Four other coach parties there at the same time. Early season so cable car to promenade not in service making walk to and from hotel to either beach or shops steep and long. That aside, difficult to offer any criticisms. Facilities, room and food all fine. However, difficult to understand what "happy hour"... More

My wife and I booked for Christmas, it was awful, we were not informed of the hotel takeover until it was to late to book anywhere else, even Parkhurst was full. Our first evening "Managers sherry reception" was half a glass of vino collapso with anything resembling a manager nowhere in sight. The entertainment was designed for let us say... More

Stayed last Christmas before it changed hands and on the strength of that stay booked again for this Christmas. Disappointed. The new managers have cut back on everything that made it so special before. Had we known, we would have cancelled. The staff work hard but fewer of them mean service is not as good. Food is acceptable but it's... More

We were there for a 'Santa' special.The food was very good although the staff were really under pressure because of their reduced numbers.The crackers were very... More
