Room decor as always is expectable, and facility's are good except- unfortunately the room was so hot!

Really exceptional comfort and service - booked 4 rooms for 12 people ages ranging 2-77 and all were catered for perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. Will definitely come again!

Reception fine. Quick check in. Room typical premier Inn. Comfy bed. All pillows were a bit flat and bed bottom very creaky. Good sleep though as good mattress and no noise from outside room. Good Internet connection. Would use again.

Stopped for an over night stay, the staff were friendly. Food was good, good menu to choose from, quick service. Bar was ok, shame nothing on tap for a pint, but still had a good choice of bottled beer. 2min walk from the seafront, so went for a walk before dinner and a after. Will be back again.

Had a good stay. Rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. Food in restaurant was good but don't make my mistake and not take cash as I had to walk back to my room which was a long trek when it was late and I was tired, to pay for extra drinks as I had paid for the meal deal. It... More

Have stayed here several times, the staff are really friendly and will try to do everything they can to help your stay there a really nice break whether it is for one night or more.
