Hotel was excellent, room was spacious and comfortable. Ideally located for the beach and town centre. Hospitality from the hotel staff was excellent. Buffet supplied on the Friday was superb, breakfasts were good, and the gala dinner on the Saturday evening was 5 star plus.

Stayed one Sunday night for business . TV not working in the room. Reception moved me to another (bigger) room. Room OK , BUT the noise from pigeons cooing on the roof from 5am - not the best night's sleep ever. Public areas OK, and staff ok , but rooms looking quite tired.
