Stayed for one night, great deal, only £60 which I thought was great value for a bank holiday. Room 302 top floor, Brill room with great view. Breakfast was first class. Check out at 11 but I was still allowed to keep my car in the car park till 3pm. Nice gesture. Def stay again. Many thanks

Hotel that's full of character great staff and wondeful food . Convenient for the city centre and the beach. My only negative feedback would be the beds are too hard . Aside from this the bedrooms are great and spotless as was the en suite .

I booked a room to celebrate our 4th Wedding Anniversary & it was amazing. We were given the Dorset Suite & made to feel incredibly special. All the staff were very welcoming & friendly. Will definitely be recommending to friends & family! And I will be planning a return visit with the wife at some point!

The room smells really terrible, the room is very tired and the shower is from the 80s. But you probably won't get such a good location for so cheap, if you're on a budget. It's near the pier and town, which is good. Personally I will not stay here again.
