Hotel was impressive from the road, and was in a handy location for the various beaches and the town centre. You could walk in 5-10 minutes. Room was clean albeit slightly dated. Great view out on to the golf course and sea - worth asking for this. Breakfast was busy but was made to order. Pancake machine was a novelty.... More

Have just returned home having spent 5 nights in the Great Northern Hotel with a group of visually impaired people. We were more than happy with our stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the food was excellent, but most of all, the outstanding memory we have, is the friendliness of the staff. They couldn't do enough for us. We... More

First visit to this hotel. To say we were surprised is an understatement. Pleasant staff - Sarah, the receptionist was kind, accommodating and helpful, there to answer any questions we had and give advice on activities to do in the area as we were not familiar with the area. Beautiful location, great food, huge rooms, in a word stunning. I... More

Stayed for 3 nights with partner. Hotel was clean and tidy with friendly staff. Room was a bit dated but the view took away from that. On 3rd day we went to use sauna and steam room and jacuzzi and 2 were broken. But these things happen. The entertainment was good even though no one there to listen to them.... More

Stopped off at the Great Northern Hotel today. Thought I would treat the younger members to a while in the pool while I went for a walk. Enjoyed my walk which is more than can be said for the 'swimmers'. They were disgusted at the dirt of the pool. They said they felt a bit "dirty" getting out of it.... More

I was responsible for organising our stay at the Great Northern for my son, whose is getting married in a few weeks and our extended family and friends. It was very important that it went well. I found Deirdre who handled all to do with the booking and Sarah who looked after us while we were excellent. Two very professional... More
