What a lovely welcome we had. John and Maxine so lovely and made us feel so welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. The sea view room we had was lovely, very clean and with a stunning view, it was just what we wanted for our short honeymoon break. The full English breakfast was lovely. So close to the sea...

The room was stylish and very clean and a lovely shower with constant hot water. Brilliant location as you walked out of the hotel... More

A nice friendly hotel close to beach and town. Our room had sea views, yes a bit rundown but clean lovely owners could not do enough for you and full breakfast every day. For the price don't expect 5star just a nice family hotel. I would recommend and hope to visit again soon.

John and Maxine and all staff at The Minerva are amazing, it is more like staying with family when we stop at the hotel, nothing is ever to much trouble for any of them, we feel so at ease letting the kids play in the pool room making many friends and have made many happy memories here, If your lucky...
