We were staying here as part of a large group. The hotel was fully booked but that didn't affect the service or the friendliness of all the staff. I had e mailed the hotel prior to our arrival to request if possible a hotel room with a sea view and also a room with a bath and not just a... More

There were two really comfy chairs in the bay window - a great spot to sit and read. The bed and pillows weren't the most comfortable and the... More

Only there for a one-night stopover at a very competitive rate so expected a basic room, so very impressed by the large, comfortable and beautifully presented accommodation we were given. (And a sea view!) Top marks!
