The hotel is in a very good spot, close to the town (2 mins walk), local shop and sea front.

The room was... More

At £22.50 per person, per night with breakfast included, what is it fair to expect? When you consider staff wages have to be paid along with all the other expenses associated with running this kind of business, I would suggest expectations should not be too high. The location of the hotel is excellent, near to the beach and town, in... More

Staff were friendly, breakfast was fine, rooms newly furnished. Our room was very clean but smelt of damp. This is a case of you get what you pay for and... More
