Really not nice stay! But for one night it was ok! Prepare for shabby conditions! Not worth the money! Stay somewhere else! No wifi in the room noisy street not very nice conditions but the view was good! Won't be staying here again. Not worth paying for a view here!

Tired smelly hotel. In need of a good revamp, this is 2015 not the 1950s. Room 403 faces on to a brick wall. Cobwebs,stains on the lampshades,wardrobe on a slant, tv not working no remote control, mirrors dirty carpet stains everywhere, paper and dirt under the bed. My mistake is that I stayed one night. My tip is to stay... More

Just an overnight stay - the room cost us £95 and never in a million years is it worth it, the only good thing i can say about this hotel was the barmaid / person serving breakfast (same lady) she was really nice and friendly. The hotel is old and smells and is in need of some TLC, the Wifi... More

Reason for using the hotel: wedding anniversary. When I booked a few days before arriving I asked if an ice bucket and couple of glasses could be there waiting and it was. Asked for a sea view and I think we had the best view fo North beach and the harbour, certainly added to our experience of the place. yes... More

No star no wonder, a cheek to charge £90 a night for back room, you'd have to visit to believe it, must say the beds were clean and comfy, breakfast ok, the milk supplied in room had gone off, glad we took own hairdryer, it was ok but not somewhere to sit around and enjoy quite depressing really, we've stayed...

This hotel is right on the front, we went is as it is an ideal place to have drinks and people watch. It was empty both times we went in, but the waitress was very nice and the prices were reasonable.

We stayed for one night,. The room was tired, the bathroom door was paint bound and didn't close and the electricity socket was loose and dangerous. The windows were loose and let in the cold air, and the radiator didn't work, so the room was cold. Breakfast was Nice and the staffs were friendly and accommodating ( warned us about... More
