Hi there, we stayed here at the end of July, this hotel is in need of a lot of modernization, its as if you where back in the 70s. As the week went on I noticed the staff went out of there way to help you and be nice. The breakfast was really good, its a budget break

If you are looking for a good budget hotel , then this is fine. The twin room was of sound quality, with a tv, kettle , small shower room/ toilet and cupboard/ drawers. This is a good hotel if you're looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful while away. It's close to the beach, town and local amenities, and there is... More

Great value for money, pleasant hotel. Rooms are a little dated and our first room was very small and we couldn't both walk around the room, so we asked for another room and staff were very happy to help and gave us a bigger room. Pleasant stay over all

Very surprised at how good this hotel was, nice friendly staff. The bar was well stocked with a good range of ales and wines. Rooms were clean and well furnished. The breakfast was excellent. Down side was the on street parking which might be a bit difficult at busy times although I had no problems.

This was our first time staying here and we would stay again. We have stayed at the Grand and found this to be on a level par. I think you have to visit to make your own mind up. We found our room to be clean and spacious with a good sized bathroom. Did all it had to for our... More

Horrible room with mildew walls. Shower/toilet grimy and disgusting. Freezing cold with window that didn't close. No tv signal had to wait 3 hours for it to be sorted. Horrible smell on landing that made us feel sick & ended up us going home a day early!
