Maybe I had the worst room in the hotel...but it was awful. It was not particularly clean, the bed was not at all comfortable and what amounted to an indoor hut that housed the bathroom was badly put together. Not somewhere I would want to stay ever again. The staff were very nice however and they are the only reason... More

This review is quite a blow as many people like it so. And thus Room Nine will stay the same to bravely face the sniper's aim. More

This is not an upmarket fancy hotel. Its a good 2 star hotel. Its all a little eccentric, retro & shabby chic. I wanted a place where I could sit & write with a great view of the sea - & the room we were given did not disappoint this hotel is right on the sea front. We had a... More

One of our party of four is a vegetarian. We looked at the menu and veggie choice is large. We all choose a veggie option independently and were all very pleased wit hthe meals we were served at very reasonable prices, under a tenner, unlike some other local establishments.

Firstly, the hotel is amazing, every room is unique with unique decoration and a lot of original artwork, I stayed in room 10 where the views overlooking the sea were stunning, the room was clean and comfortable and had that nice uniqueness that makes you feel...

Ate on Tuesday evening, had booked a table for three, including my 90 year old father in law. How wonderful to be a vegan and actually be WELCOMED into a restaurant, and not be thought of as a hinderence for who you have to just 'sling a dish' on the menu! I ate Rissole, with bed of noodles and veggie's... More

Very small room, low water pressure on shower, good location, Friendly staff in the bar, it seems that it is stuck in the fifties, needs updating big time, and repairs need to be done to the floor in the front hallway.

Rocked up for dinner with the 2 toddlers in the off-season. Barman/receptionist super friendly and helpful. Not to mention tolerant of the 2 monkeys running around whilst he was trying to work. Food pretty good too! Menu far more limited than the one advertised on the website but to be expected in late October!
