Was upgraded to The Glengower after a hotel booking mix-up and we were happily surprised. Big rooms, comfy bed, gorgeous shower and a superb restaurant. Topped off with a sunset on our doorstep-perfect.

The service was friendly but quite slow even though there were not that many people having food. The nacho and antipasti starters were okay but nothing special. The lasagne was very dry to the point where I couldn't eat more than a quarter. I spoke to a friend who had also tried it on a different occasion and said hers... More

Welcoming staff on checking in. Our 2nd floor room had a sea view and en suite shower room. The bed was comfortable but the shower room had no shelves for personal toiletries and felt 'unfinished'. The room's bay window was sealed with paint on two sides and no lock on the opening middle sash. Good atmosphere in the ground floor... More

Booked a room with a sea view and we got that but the room is very small and the bathroom very basic and tiny. It takes a few minutes before the light switches on fully in the bathroom too. All the furniture is very well worn and scratched! Shame really

Our first visit on a Saturday afternoon confirmed the makeover and the place is very pleasant and roomy inside. The two meals on Saturday were good quality I had an excellent pork dish but my wife thought her pasta dish... More

We stayed here for a few days in July and found it to be an excellent choice with a comfortable room, very good food (good quality and good sized portions) and an excellent range of beers, some of which changed during our stay. We had a room on the second floor at the front of the hotel with views of... More
