This hotel provides excellent service and comfort for a very reasonable price. The sea is just round the corner and when you return from the beach the food here is excellent. Good enough to keep 50+ Methodist ministers more than satisfied!

This Hotel is a comfortable 3* Hotel. Reception is well run and the staff are friendly and helpful. The room was well appointed, though I did think the flat screen TV could have been a bit bigger. Wifi was great, got connected wherever I was and breakfast was very good. So why only 3* review. We went out for dinner... More

Aitchraz Thank you for your review and bringing the bar issue to my attention. I am sorry you were so incensed with the bar girl not understanding what you meant by beer in a pot. The only explanation I can offer is that it is such a rare request in a hotel such as ours that it was obviously omitted... More

Our room was comfortable, clean and adequate for the one night we planned to stay. Breakfast was good, full English or Continental. Staff very pleasant and took my comment about no surface areas in the bathroom positively. I would also say I'd want a good light above the mirror in the bedroom, so I can sit down and put my...

Lovely bedroom, excellent meals. Main lounge a bit cool but the main doors open into it. Would recommend to anyone who wanted a not too expensive hotel for business or just a few days away. Easy walk to East Cliff with views over the bay or walk down to the beach.

Eevilee It is always so nice to start the day with such a positive and complimentary review for which I thank you.
