Great hotel with a fantastic, central location. Lovely rooms (ours had a stunning view of the harbour) and wonderful, friendly staff. The function room was also well equipped and an excellent venue for the wedding celebration we were attending. Delicious breakfast and all other meals available are also of an excellent quality and great value. Highly recommended, will be back!

Staff were so friendly from arrival to check out. Breakfast was lovely and good choice. Room was clean but I think £90 is a bit expensive as the room was quite small and when we got into bed there was a plastic mattress cover which was noisy uncomfy and make us over heat felt like a large puppy training pad!...

May 2015. Our room – (Double-Deluxe-Ensuite-Harbour View) had a good view over harbour and sea. Large room with good bed. Ate in bar – good food and not expensive. Breakfast had a good menu of cooked to order food. Would definitely stay here again. We were travelling on foot – so cannot speak to parking.

Unfortunately we only stayed here one night so didn't get to enjoy lunch or dinner but if breakfast was anything to go by the food will be delicious. Our room was spotlessly clean, as is the rest of the hotel, and the views of the harbour were fabulous. As good as it all is the real stars of the Golden... More

We stayed here for 2 nights last week and although there was no lift, the food, staff and owner were exceptional. Philip the owner, Diane, the receptionist and bar and waiting staff,, Jessica and Joanne were so friendly and helpful. The room was pleasant, clean and warm, but the homely feel of the hotel itself, was extremely relaxing. We had... More

Food was nice, but the high chair they brought for my little boy was absolutely disgusting. I actually had to clean it myself before i sat him in it. It was filthy, Put me off my meal. I mentioned it to the waiter, but nothing was said.

Went for a bite to eat with a few friends on a Saturday night. An eager but clearly inexperienced, young waiting staff did well! .....much better than the food that was served at any rate. We were all a little disappointed by the quality of the food served, especially considering the prices!
