We wanted three nights in a room with a sea view, booked and paid for it. However, the hotel messed up the booking and gave us a room with a view of a fence! We complained, but they were full, so moved us for the second and third night. They did not charge us for the seaview upgrade. The room... More

This hotel was lovely the staff were very welcoming and couldnt do enough for you. Kids club at night was enjoyed by the 8 and 12 year old. Only complaint I would have is that the bar menu was very limited.

Was staying here, like so many others, on a David Uequhart mon-Friday break and didn't know what to expect. We need not have worried...and how lucky were we to get a magnificent view from our room! Usually elsewhere it's the sheds/car park/bins. Room perfect. Even had a large TV which worked (!!!!!) and when we were in, mostly had it... More

I would have given this hotel a higher review but for the staff shortage and ok food. Yes the food was nice, but not great. The breakfast was nice, but with not alot of choice tbh. The staff were VERY helpful, but it was very clear they were understaffed the whole weekend. The hotel staff and waiting staff were fantastic,... More
