Not too bad... Cozy room, comfy bed, nice staff. They also gave me a welcome set with cake and a teddy bear (!). Shame the wifi in the room wasn't working properly. The bar/restaurant (Poetic licence) is very nice, with good food at a reasonable price. Worth a visit if you're around!

We arrived for coffee and cake at 'Let There Be Crumb's' to find it fully booked.... I had not thought to make a booking. The waitress suggested we try Poetic Licence next door - still part of the hotel. We weren't really sure - but had travelled a long distance so decided to give it a try. Waitress was a... More

A pleasant stay, clean, comfortable, good views and friendly hotel. Staff was very helpful and both with hotel services and even with taxies. The breakfast was good. Hotel on the sea with wonderful walks by the sea and in nearby garden.

Myself and my partner decided to visit the Poetic Licence bar for a birthday meal on a Wednesday evening. After ringing at midday and being told they do not take reservations and you can just turn up because it doesn't get busy, we arrived to be told it will be a 20 min wait, maybe more or less because they...

Visited Poetic License on Sunday for a family meal. Relatives had travelled up and we thought what a great venue to showcase our fantastic coastline. The view from our table was the only positive about our experience! The starters took quite a while to arrive and when they did one was missing bread - we asked the waiter if it... More

Four adult Sunday dinners bought. The beef had a terrible taste that we had to leave it. Customers on other tables also complain a bout the meat.... More

I saw a review suggesting standards are slipping, and I must agree. Been here a lot and I like it, but the past couple of Saturdays have made me re-evaluate. Tables not cleared, at the bar I was sticking to the floor, as I moved it was pulling my shoes of. Really! The past few times there has been real... More

Went to the best western roker park for another cousin's wedding. Hotel lovely inside. One thing I did find was the drinks are expensive. And another thing was that the buffet wasn't served till 9.45pm which for a buffet at that place was rather late. I did enjoy the evening. would I go back I don't think so.

Arrived at the hotel on a Sunday night without pre-booking. Various rooms offered to us at different prices and then we were kindly upgraded to the bridal suite. Lovely spacious room, fantastic bathroom and picturesque views. Thanks to the courteous lady and gent on reception. Went to the newly revamped bar for a drink and it was lovely for a... More
