Got into the room early and despite a problem with the key getting stuck in the lock the room was clean, warm and very welcoming. The bathroom was small but adequate for our needs. The staff were all fantastic and very welcoming throughout our stay. We had... More

It's always nice to see you David and Julie. Thanks very much for your repeat business over the years. Note to future guests...kippers are off the menu now but we have an alternative....smoked salmon with poached/scrambled eggs topped with hollondaise sauce on a toasted muffin with a sprinling of chives....which leads me to my favourite joke...I walked past the fridge...

I cannot recommend this hotel enough. It's a warm greeting from the start, with the offer of a tea or coffee, and the owner requiring if you have had a pleasant journey. Said gent man's the karaoke of an evening which is great fun. Also deserving praise is Gav the barman who is friendly, chatty and a great laugh. The... More

Stayed at this hotel last september it was great, good location to get anywhere else, with tram and bus stops nearby. helpful staff and breakfasts were brilliant and set you up for the day, Just wish i was there this year. Only thing i would say is would have liked mushrooms on the breakfast. But would recommend to anyone.

Always a warm friendly welcome when arriving at the Canasta. Coffee , Tea and a soft drink complimentary throughout the day. Rooms ideal for your stay, amazing breakfast and fantastic welcoming owners and staff. As a returning customer would recommend this hotel if you want a warm welcome, fantastic sea views, filling breakfast and a great sleep.
