The staff were welcoming but we didn't like to fact that we were asked to pay for our stay before even seeing the room.The room we had was very tatty and unloved, poor plumbing but plenty of hot water and a heated towel rail which was on ALL the time, as was the central heating in the hotel !.

This is our second visit to this hotel with our now 15 month old twins. We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms - 4d which was just perfect. Big enough to allow the toddlers to toddle about happily with a separate area to put them to bed, away from our sleeping area and the TV. The bathroom is lovely... More

Don't take a dog, they apparently only allow the dog in the bedroom in spite of telling you when you ring to book that the dog can sit in the bar whilst you eat and drink, (we are responsible dog owners and accept and do not expect to be able to take a dog into the restaurant of any hotel)....

My husband booked this hotel for a last minute get away. Upon arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff who booked us in and took our bags to our rooms. Room was perfect, clean, tidy with fantastic sea views. Nice big double bed and good sized shower room. We didn't know much about the area and staff were on... More

I stayed there for 2 nights from 20.05 till 22.05.2015. To be fair we first intended not to stay there, but due to a booking problem and the area being busy at that time, we went to that place. Upon arrival we were told by the receptionist that we had to pay upfront (this was not a request, we were... More

We had friends visit recently and they said it was clean comfy and hospitable and they were very happy there compared to a previous hotel in the vicinity as they felt they had more space and it was brighter and cleaner. They said it was excellent value for money - its good to be able to recommend visitors to a... More

We visited this hotel with a coach party. Not too pleased by the area as we got nearer, but on arrival we were welcomed inside with a cup of tea or coffee and then told how to find our rooms, what time meals where, bar times and other important details. Our luggage was taken to our rooms by the VERY... More

We went here for a function and it didn't go terribly well. As you arrive you come into foyer / bar area that could do with dressing up a little, it's quite sparse and with a little imagination it could be wonderful, there are views across the sea to die for. Then the nightmare began. We were a big but... More
