Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Great location, room was large with a fantastic view of the sea. Breakfast was available for an extended time and there was a lot of variety. On site parking was very limited but there was ample on street parking nearby which only required a payment of 50p/hour during working hours (9.00-5.30) which we only paid... More

Stayed in the hotel in early August for the weekend. Found everything from the reception staff to the night porter very helpful. Took the option of a sea view suite, absolutely stunning view of the coast line and a room that was very clean and spacious. Breakfast were a treat to behold as well as the overall service. Would highly... More

Absolutely stunning sea view from our room (No 7) and lovely big, clean and comfortable room with spacious en-suite. Really enjoyed relaxing in the big bay window looking at the sea! Fabulous buffet breakfast with so much choice and friendly quick service for tea, coffee and fresh toast. Loved it here, definitely would come back.

Stayed for two nights with my daughter and had a wonderful time, on arrival we got a parking space (read this might be an issue), got upgraded to a family room with a sea view and got a very warm welcome. Breakfast was buffet service and we left fit to bust each morning. The room was well equipped and clean,... More

Stayed for two nights at this friendly, relaxed, and clean hotel. Our room had a sea view which was well worth the few extra pounds. Breakfast choices and quality was excellent and the Tapas meal on the first evening was second to none. Will definitely return. Thank you everyone.

Large room, good customer service and excellent value! Very good location on the sea front and next to an Italian restaurant. Staff were polite and helpful. Rooms clean and spacious. All the above made for a very comfortable stay.

The breakfast was amazing and really fresh, loads of choice -continental and cooked - I really like the Danish Pastries. Only downside was the Italian Restaurant closed at 8o'clock (but... More

This hotel was excellent, the room we had was large & airy. We only stayed for 1 night and we were at the back of the hotel. But I noticed the rooms at the front had wonderful sea views. The staff were very good and couldn't be faulted. The breakfast was served in a nice breakfast room, food well cooked,... More

This was a short break to visit relatives and I couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The room was beautiful and spacious and had the most incredible views. We must remember to pack the binoculars next time! Perhaps having some behind reception may be an idea. Breakfast was vey good with lots of choice, served in a very pleasant, airy... More
