Great location, on a sandy beach, which has a small promenade, attractions on the beach and hire places for beach necessities (if forgotten). Hotel, has prime position and although is extremely busy, as a pub and a restaurant as well. It is maintained and kept clean and the service was quick and pleasant. Hotel rooms were lovely and we faced... More

We visited this restaurant a few times, and each time we were more than happy with the service and food, the restaurant was clean and tidy. The bar held a good selection of beers and wines although we're a bit on the pricey side

Just returned from a lovely break at the pier hotel and thought I must share our wonderful experience. The hotel and staff exceeded our expectations as we couldn't fault a thing. Reception staff were so welcoming and friendly as were the bar and waiting staff. All staff we met were a credit to the hotel as customer care was above... More

We have adopted the Pier Hotel as our first choice for family meals. We generally have around 12 people in our party, ranging from toddlers to 'oldies', and we are always looked after so well by the restaurant staff. There are a good range of meals at reasonable prices and a good selection of real ales. The setting by the... More

This is an well run and very nice hotel. You can see that the owners have put a lot of thought into how a guest would feel during their stay. There is a lovely busy bar, an outside area and a very nice quieter wine bar. Also you can either dine in these areas or use the restaurant. Very nice... More

So good to encounter a well run, traditional seaside hotel. It has been tastefully modernised, and boasts as friendly a team of staff as you are likely to find anywhere. Add to that a beachside location (on one side at least, the other side is a working harbour), a choice of bars and a generally very good restaurant, and you... More

We stayed again as requested in room 205 and how lovely it was after being refurbished, very... More

I really liked the hitel. It was in an ideal place. Very quite area plus the beach is on the door step , less than 30sec walk. I think some of the hotel could do with a little touch up as there are a few bits out dated even in the room but other than that it was good. The... More
