The views were amazing, the room was clean and the bed, very comfortable.Reception staff very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the same can t be said for for the breakfast service. Only a fry up on offer for breakfast, which took 20 minutes to arrive, but, It tasted amazing , but unfortunately the cheap soggy bread/toast didn t complement it. The... More

Apart from the amazing sea view the hotel has nothing to offer ,old and tired deco which would have been accepted if it was a bed and breakfast , breakfast was a joke they were short staffed and the ones serving I.e only 2 were clearly upset and disliked their job and kept moaning while they were serving to an...

All the staff and hotel manager and very nice and shows huge admiration for everyone. Suggested a nice rose with the meal Reception staff suggested chocolate fondant which blew my mind, seeing the liquid chocolate rush out as you start to take a slice. The hotel faces the sea

Stayed here in march 2015. Receptionist was really helpful and sorted out breakfast in our room for us. Room was clean and fresh . We had wifi which you can access easily. I read people moaning the signal for phones isn't great. It's like that in many parts of the isle. The worst reviews are a joke left by bitter... More

On approaching the hotel it looks a bit tired from outside but on checking into room 20 we were confronted with a superb sea view and wonderful wrap around balcony. Despite one day being very stormy the view is fantastic. Whilst the hotel is still a little tired inside too with a few repairs needed the star were very friendly... More

Have just returned from 3 night stay here and had a brilliant time. We had a superior double room (20) with the most stunning views across the sea. Location couldn't be faulted with direct access to the beach down the steps with lots of local pubs and restaurants within walking distance. Only thing that wasn't quite amazing was the breakfast....

Really struggled with this rating. Four stars for the friendly staff, location, and the view (from our deluxe double was superb). The slippers were a nice touch as were the lovely toiletries. The bed was comfy, the linen was fresh & clean, and we both had a good night's sleep. But for 110 pounds per night.... Parking is woeful, and... More

We booked a whole week here as a convalescence for me and my hubby. It is a lovely hotel, overlooking the sea. We had room 11 which had a super balcony, with decking, and 2 comfortable chairs. The bedroom was well appointed, but my only gripe would be the lack of housekeeping. The floor was not vacuumed for the whole... More

Stayed at this hotel just for one night after reading reviews about the views. We were greeted with friendliness and show our room , number 20 which was large and had a lovely curved balcony with views over the bay. The bed was extremely comfortable and nice chairs on the balcony. The only complaint would be that it is directly... More

We had booked for two nights but one was enough and we checked out. Ok the season is over, but standards shouldn't drop, or so does the reputation. We paid extra for a sea view room (£118 per night) and it was showing signs of age, though of course the views are stunning and that's what they are relying on.... More
