This was the first time I had gone on holiday on my own, so was a little wary but wanted to try it. I need not have worried....everyone was welcoming and friendly, and throughout the 5 day Turkey and Tinsel break I had a lovely time. My room was absolutely fine with 2 single beds in, and-as I had already...

The guests were amazing and we met some wonderful people....

I was given a room on the fourth floor and, as all floors are reached by two lifts, this did not seem a problem but each lift only allowed...

This hotel was very clean. Bed nice and comfy. Staff really nice all very friendly. We stayed at this hotel for the Turkey and Tinsel weekend. We were made to feel welcome even before we got off the coach as the manageress came onto the coach to greet us. Food was very good. Enjoyable weekend.

A colleague and I were due to attend a education course in Eastbourne, we decided to travel down on the Sunday rather than face a 330 mile trip on the Monday morning. Found the hotel on Booking.com for £27.90 per room for B&B. Arrived and found the hotel was very clean and welcoming. Staff all pleasant, very good breakfast the...
