We've stayed at several Alfa hotels and this one, like the rest, follows the simple formula of offering great value, in a great location, in a lovely but somewhat tired building. As always, all staff were very friendly, but many appeared new and / or with limited English which sometimes made communications difficult. Especially for the older guest. The dining... More

We only stayed one night bed&breakfast. Room was very tired and floors very creaky. The bath panel was hanging offand there was a draught under it so it keeped banging. I wedged the small bin in the bathroom against it. Room was clean though. The view was stunning from the window over looking the bay. And the weather was lovely.... More

Despite previous negatives, we enjoyed our break at this hotel. We travelled with Brent Thomas coaches from South Wales, our room was clean, comfortable and the bathroom had an excellent shower. The staff were efficient and most helpful. OK meals were at set times but that can be expected, if anyone wants meals at anytime then stay at bigger hotels!... More

We have just returned home today after a four night stay (6th June - 10th June). It is concerning to read the recently posted review with regards to the apparent 'norovirus' experience by the coach group in question. Our own coach group numbered 32 passengers, but when returning home, this was diminished to just 24, which we learnt from chatting... More

There is no evidence that the illness originated in the hotel and indeed we are aware of outbreaks of similar illness in numerous towns throughout the country. These are what are known as “small, round, structured viruses” or SRSV viruses. They are usually of the Norwalk or Rota variety. They are extremely infectious and are usually spread by sneezing and... More

Returned home from a four night stay at this hotel yesterday (7th June 2015). The stay was part of a 5 day break with Alfa Travel. First of all I must say that Alfa Travel were excellent, the coach travel and driver were very reliable (and did what they said on the can). The trips out were very good and... More

I am sorry that you were disappointed with the shower pressure and the food at the Cavendish Hotel. I am sure that, as with the television and the hair dryer, these problems could also have been addressed had you reported them to the Manageress or the reception. The lounge was closed as it had to be cleaned and fogged after... More

This was my 3rd visit to an Alfa Hotel and not up to the standard by any means to the previous two unfortunately.

This was a coach holiday with Alpha Holidays. I was very pleased with my single room. Everything I needed except that it was a bit gloomy, as the room faced North. A more powerful reading light would have been useful. I was pleased to have sheet and blankets, not a duvet. I didn't like the evening meals. I thought all... More

A group of 4 of us have just returned from this lovely seafront hotel. Although quite dated it was clean, warm and the food (vegetarian) was very good. Adrian our waiter looked after us very well indeed. The entertainment was good. I had a single room and although the views weren't great the room was perfectly adequate. I did have... More
