A recent week spent at this hotel proved to be as good as we hoped. We knew we had not booked the Ritz and we were not asked Ritz 'prices' for our stay. We had a nice clean room over the promenade. It was quiet at night and we were out all day every day. The staff were keen to... More

This is an older building and as such had only one tiny lift to serve all 5 floors. The lift could take comfortably only 4 to 5 persons. otherwise... More

We stayed here for two nights to attend a conference. The staff were charming and helpful but our bedroom was pokey, stuffy, tired and smelled of cooking and with noise from the road. The bedroom cupboard was old and also very smelly which meant we had to keep our clothes in our suitcase. Our small bathroom had been renovated and... More

Yes this hotel is dated and not been decorated for some time but it is clean, pleasant, friendly, well located and welcoming. Although the bar could do with stocking a better supply and range of drinks!

Stayed for 5 nights during February half term and could not have been happier. Lovely, very large room over looking the sea. Spotlessly clean. Fabulous breakfast, friendly staff nothing was too much trouble. Will be back and am more than happy to recommend.
