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

Arrived evening 24th November 2014, Steve welcomed us and our keys and cases were sorted out promptly. We had a very enjoyable week with good food, comfortable accommodation and entertainment provided every evening. We all had a present from 'Santa' and were treated to free mulled wine, a sherry and some 'bubbly' to welcome the 'New Year'. The staff were... More

My husband and I spent a night at the Arbour Hotel in the last week of August. The hotel is clean and adequate for a night. We chose a room with a sea view and this was well worth it. However the guest's experience could be improved greatly with just a few little touches. For example there was the usual... More

Stayed for 5 days in July and had a lovely time. Hotel was clean and comfortable and management very friendly. Had a nice room with superb seaview which we could look out at whilst laying on the very comfortable beds or sitting on the chairs at the window. Very relaxing stay and would stay again if in the area.
