Stayed for a 3 night break which was thoroughly enjoyed. Hotel is run by family. Meal times are at set times, 6.30pm for dinner, but the service was very efficient and friendly. We didn't partake of the evening entertainment in the bar, but could see that this would be very enjoyable for the coach parties which the hotel caters for.... More

Stayed for a Saturday night in June and loved the welcome we received from the family owners. Parking not really available at hotel but there is plenty around nearby we managed to park opposite and it only cost a few quid up until 6pm then it was free Sunday but the reception can advise. The hotel was a great UK... More

Booked last minute and had no idea what the hotel would be like. Upon arrival Nick was extremely welcoming and this seemed to extend to all the staff. The hotel is dated but is spotlessly clean and our room appeared to have been recently redecorated. Breakfast was very good with a choice for everyone. Definitely value for money!

Stayed here with a group 11th of July for a week, what a smashing place, all the staff are outstanding, nothing is never a problem, the food is top class, The owners made us all so welcome and the entertainment perfect, the rooms clean and plenty of space, perfectly situated near the beaches and the town.

Like another reviewer I don't think we are the target market for this hotel. We travelled independently but the majority of guests were with a large coach party. The best thing about this hotel is ALL THE STAFF - everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was ok, it was clean and comfy but a bit dated and, unfortunately,... More

I don't think I'm really the target market for this hotel- I got the impression it's aimed squarely at the older market (and coach parties for that market). However... the hotel was easy enough to find, situated next to a gorgeous but now sadly disused Berkeley Hotel. Parking can be hit or miss, the on-road parking outside the hotel is... More

Sandy was lovely and even borrowed my nan a mobility scooter when we had... More

Have just spent 5 days here with a coach party and had a great stay. Must be one of the friendliest hotels ever and Nick was a fantastic entertainer. Some areas are dated but bedding and towels superb. Menu was basic but food was hot and plentiful and always served with a smile. Mobility was an issue for some more... More
