We've just come back from an overnight stay here. The first impression is quite good. A clean reception area and a reasonable looking restaurant and bar overlooking the harbour. There is also ample parking to the front and rear of the building. An important issue in a city. It is well located for walking into the town centre. The staff... More

A great location as only a 10 minute walk into the town centre. The room was lovely but small, breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice. A good value hotel and very comfortable. Has its own car park out front. Would recommend as an overnight stop.

Room clean and beds comfortable but just felt grotty. Corridor old, dirty carpet made it feel dirty before you entered your room. Shower small. Staff were really pleasant. Didn't eat here as it was very brief stopover on way back to Eurotunnel. We arrived in the dark and left in the dark so maybe that didn't help.

The room was clean and tidy and exactly what we expected for the price and 2 star rating. Good central location and easy parking. Breakfast was varied and ample, with a variety of breads, meat, cheese and yoghurts. For us the best feature was the staff. Sadly our (too old for European recovery) car broke down and everyone did everything... More

Yes, the hotel is in need of some refurbishment, but its location is great - just over the bridge from the centre of town and right next to the marina - and it's cheap. Our room had a good ensuite shower/toilet, an OK bed, free wifi and TV. The hotel was warm throughout despite the chilly conditions outside and we... More

This is a simple yet well run, well organised and solidly good budget hotel. It is not 5* but nor does it pretend to be. The facade is a little dated - looks more like something from Marineville! - and the design of the public areas reflects this. However... The rooms are a reasonable size, the bathroom a little small... More

Facilities and everything in the hotel are basic, it's value for money and located at the marine area, which is a walking distance to the centre. There is free Wifi and it's not bad, got a free parking area too. The only funny thing was...we put the 'do not disturb' sign outside the door but the maid still knocked on... More

Doesn't look much from the outside, but this is a very nice, if basic, hotel. We stayed in a double room, which was quite small, but absolutely fine for a short break (we stayed one night). Bathroom was very small with no bath, but shower was very good. Bed was not the best I've ever slept in, but certainly not... More
