The gr8 is a fantastic central hotel. Always a party. Ideal for a weekend away with the girls/ guys. Clean room and fab breakfast. This was my 5th year there. Michelle and her sons are fantastic hosts :)
It is near to central pier and there are lots of good pubs round about. Also for good there are lots of fast food take always around too. You can walk to the tower in 5 mins and the centre of town.

Can't say enough about this hotel. Michelle, Dainey and the rest of the staff cannot do enough to make you feel at home. The bar is great and always a pleasant smile when you are being served. The rooms are all spotless and we'll maintained. So we are booked again for next year.

Room was decent, we had two single beds and a bunk bed, which my friend was very impressed with. The staff was fab, moved the car for us, and poor Tim was cleaning sick off the stairs at 2am and still had a friendly chat with me. Michelle remembered my friends from last year and she was great to talk to. The bar staff were very friendly, and there was a great atmosphere there. The breakfast in the morning was what you expect for £25 a night. The bloke serving it was lovely. Would recommend for a night or two stay.
