We (myself and my wife aged 33, boy aged 9 and girl aged 14) stayed at this hotel as part of the National Holidays tour. It's not somewhere where we'd have chosen ourself if it wasn't for the organised tour but overall we were impressed. It was a basic, clean 3 star hotel. The overall rating I have given it...

The hotel is a little dated but very clean. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We stayed there as a base for our National Holiday Ostend holiday. The breakfast was very good with a good variety, even having a plentiful supply of scrambled eggs, bacon and grilled tomatoes. Could not fault the evening meal, soup always delicious, the...

I stayed here with my two children who are 16 and 19 from 8th to 11th August 2014. We had a double room each and all were very clean and had everything you needed. The bed was so comfortable and the flat screen TV was welcomed and we got English channels!! The breakfasts were superb, eat as much as you...

Fascinating reading the reviews after I came back! So, a very mixed experience. Hilarious notice in the lift; anyone bringing drinks back to the hotel from outside (or wtte) makes themselves liable to ' Instant Dismissal' - underlined, and yes, with the capital letters!! I doubt this is legal in any European country - but might upset those of a...

Possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in:- only stayed for 3 nights (thank goodness) and one of my companions wrote her name in the dust on the first afternoon and it was still there on the last day; pillowcases weren't changed; bathroom sink was dirty; 2(!) electric sockets in a 3 person room; food was ok BUT the...

A very tired and dated coaching hotel. The majority of residents here are on inclusive coach trips and I did not pay a lot for our stay. But as rooms are advertised as €129 per night for a double I would suggest this is a huge overprice intended to 'impress' said coach travellers. The hotel looks unattractive from the outside...

Stayed for 6 nights on a Coach tour with KM of Chesterfield. As others have pointed out the only good thing about this hotel is the location. I found the bedroom on the 1st floor 107 was very quiet and big. Beds were a bit on the low side so if you have a problem getting up then beware. The...
