With extended family in the area, we visit this location often. This was the second time we have stayed at this hotel, this time we booked a balcony room which was definitely worth the extra money. The rooms are much better decorated, and the stunning view on a sunny day compares with South of France ! Real pleasure to wake... More

Great views on a sunny day , some of the "Tapas" type food options not great value but friendly staff who may need a bit more training in some areas ! Pretty relaxed place though !! Main meals good value and plentiful , great hot chocolate :-)

Needed a room for the night on the way to France on Business. I was happy with this hotel and will return sometime. Staff friendly and efficient - location on sea front a bonus. Would have liked car parking, but managed to get my vehicle parked just outside the hotel (and my sea view room) by looking for someone to... More

Travelling down from Scotland we stayed here as we were booked on the Euro tunnel early the next morning. Arriving at about 7pm there was no available car park spaces and we had to park on the busy road. The reception bar/ area is pleasant enough but the rooms need to be upgraded. Breakfast the following morning was ok but... More

One receptionist offered us her car park but it meant we had to walk back. Bar and food great although Sunday... More

We stayed here overnight to catch an early morning Eurotunnel train. The hotel downstairs area looks pleasant. The rest of the hotel is not very nice. The lift smells like it's been used as a toilet for many years. The bed was very low to the floor and uncomfortable. The bathroom floor tiles were broken, loose and looked really grubby.... More

I couldn't fault the cleanliness of the hotel but it was very basic. Breakfast consisted of a full English breakfast, Continental or poached egg or scrambled eggs on toast. There was fruit juice the first two mornings but none on the last day and no cereal on any day. Parking was a bit of a nightmare as spaces by the... More
