Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very pleasant hotel with friendly staff in a stunning location. We were blessed with great weather, so could enjoy the views from the balcony. Well worth paying extra for a sea view. Also has easy access to the town and all it has to offer. While there, enjoyed an excellent meal in the restaurant. Overall had a very enjoyable stay...

The hotel has a lovely location especially if you have a sea view room. I stayed here as an alternative to the west cliff hotel (which is awful). The staff are very helpful and friendly, the hotel itself is nice enough, a hotel that you can image being very grand in the 1940s but I have to be honest it...

Don't take your car to this Hotel - parking scam in operation and endorsed by management !! Keep your parking ticket because they WILL try to scam you for £100, whether you have paid or not - given you car reg or not. AWFUL Needless to say - we won't be going back!

Attended a training course here & at the Carlton next door and was really impressed. Beautiful setting for a hotel with equally beautiful views. Breakfast & dinner was very good. Service excellent especially from Sam at the Carlton. Would definitely revisit and might even take the kids this time. Beautiful place.

We booked for a one night stay before we went on to a holiday apartment, pleased it was only one night as the room we had was small, tired and quite depressing! The bathroom was even worse and in need of a complete replacement. The decor and general poor condition of the corridors along to our room certainly gave us...

This hotel was probably modern in the 40's. They have tried to make the rooms modern, but that did not worked out. I propose a new interior stylist, as well a good painter(paint on the windows) as well someone who can isolate the walls(you can hear the neighbour snore...). The roommaids slamming the doors. No airconditioning, you need to open...
