This hotel is well situated overlooking the sea. Be sure to book a sea view room. Although very dated, this hotel has charm. However, at £95 per double room per night, one would expect some toiletries in the bathroom. But no, these come at an extra cost of 45p! for 3 sachets how pathetic. We specifically chose this hotel because... More

Friendly staff and pleasant time spent there. Hotel was dated and could do with a overhaul although I imagine times are tight and won't happen anytime soon. Interesting entertainment from a local Country singer topped off with good beer. Unfortunately wasn't able to sample breakfast due to early start although the staff were flexible to our needs Coach party appeared... More

It was a last minute decision to stay in a hotel once we got to the beach as the weather was quite miserable. I had my son who has autism with me and my other two children ...The room was fine but the bathroom and toilet need updating ... As my son will not tolerate being in crowds or sitting... More

This review is written on behalf of my parents who have just returned from a short break at the Arbour Hotel. A really nice stay over the May bank holiday weekend! Food was excellent and the service amazing! The pork dinner was lovely with the trimmings. All for £13.75 - a three course meal for that! There aren't many hotels... More
