Had a great time here for my father's 80th. Staff went out of their way to look after us and really made us feel welcome. Food was beautiful and leisure centre is great to relax and unwind. Will definitely be back

The meal was fabulous, potato&leek soup to start, followed by two perfectly cooked steaks, carrot cake dessert and coffees!!

Hotel is rated 4 star and is far from it. The rooms are tiny and the walls are so thin that you can hear everything from the room next door. The hotel needs a good clean and updating, dampness marks on the wall and the lock on the bathroom door was broken. Bar food was excellent as were the staff... More

We lovely day here for a family wedding, food I have to say was exceptional standard. Lovely setting for a wedding also and we were blessed with the weather! I didn't get to stay but any family that did said they had a great time! Only negative is Banquet staff were not the friendliest during dinner service.

Rooms are very basic and small. Hotel in great need if modernisation! Hallways were shabby and walls paper thin, could hear full conversations of people next door!! Very noisy at night with crowds from a wedding in carpark just below until early hours of the morning on both nights. Bar food was nice and reasonably priced. Staff were mostly friendly... More

Hotel is situated on the beach with good access to sandy beach. Good leisure facilities and pool. Old section could do with some paint and TLC. Large bar and good staff. Rose served us and was very friendly and professional. Good option for family break
