We have just returned from the WORST 3 day break ever. When we arrived the first thing we had to do was make payment for the three days. I had explained that my wife was disabled BUT we were not told that there was no lift and I had to struggle up the stairs with my wife and cases as... More

We had a fantastic stay at the hotel. Had a very spacious sea view room which was in an immaculate condition having been recently refurbished. The staff were very polite and friendly and so helpful. The shops were close by and the beach was very clean. The cooked breakfast was very enjoyable. We will definitely be going again next year.... More

It will never be perfect in every way, but for us it's location is just right & the staff are always friendly. The breakfasts are lovely. Parking is a pain, about 5-6 spaces & it's just luck if...

Due to using a wheelchair unfortunately we were limited in available rooms...I would have loved a sea view! The ladies in the dining room and on reception are lovely. The quality of the... More

We stayed there for a couple of nights while attending a wedding in the area. The hotel is in dire need of the refurbishment that they say will be happening. The best thing was the breakfast but the room was old, the bed was not comfortable, the bathroom is in urgent need of replacement, the water dribbled out of the... More
