We spend two nights here before heading off to the Isle of Wight. We had a sea view room which was lovely. The room it's self was not spectacular but comfortable and clean. Disappointed there was no mini bar in the room though. Especially for a best western !!

The room was large, the only complaint, you cannot open the...

Our swing dance club organised the event, an overnight with breakfast plus buffet evening meal and dance. The price was excellent, too good to refuse as was the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable as was the food. Staff were helpful, overall a very enjoyable stay, would recommend.
