Flew from Blackpool! It was great. I went with my daughter. We only stayed for one night. The staff were lovely and so helpful. The room was clean and the breakfast was wonderful. So much choice. The young lady on reception was able to answer any of our questions.

We stayed here for two nights. The staff were really helpful and lovely. The room although dated was clean and spacious equipped with kettle and hairdryer. The shower and bath were again dated but clean and done a super job. My only complaint was the rattling window which needs some attention. I got up three times in the night to... More

Came back from the Isle of Man this weekend. Travelled with Alfa. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Good view of the harbour. We`ve travelled with Alfa before and would highly reccomend them, hotels are dated but always clean welcoming, food brilliant, BUT this one really lets them down. As I said rooms are OK but meals and mealtimes are... More

We chose this hotel as it was dog friendly, and the only dog friendly hotel vacant for the night we wanted. It was very reasonably priced too, so I expected it to be a little on the "rough" side. How wrong I was to think that. Every member of staff we had contact with were lovely. They made a fuss... More

The Hydro hotel is a typical older seafront hotel which has been updated to provide all on-suite rooms with a good sized dining room and comfortable bar. The rooms are quite compact and bijou but this is reflected in the price. There is a lift but this can get busy when a coach party pitches up (as we were!). The... More

Great food and well above average quality,good choice of traditional,eggs benedict,or kippers. Our room 501 was clean with great view and although the property is not new,it has great quality and a nod to times gone which... More

A lovely old hotel but in need of updating - about ready for a bit of tlc. That said, the room, whilst small was very clean and perfectly adequate for our purposes for the four nights we stayed there, basically using it as a place to sleep at the end of busy days out and about. Staff were friendly and... More

We stayed here as part of a coach party. Meals were very good with a fair variety. We were lucky enough to be given a sea view although the room was a strange triangular shape. Bath with shower. TV. Tea and coffee making facilities. Be aware that the hotel has a steep set of steps leading to the reception and... More
