Only believe the bad views if you're a snob. We booked the hotel at the last minute and I loved Fawlty Towers the TV show. The staff were very friendly and the location is perfect, right on the front next to the main shopping strip. Parking is free behind the hotel which saves you a fortune on it's own. The... More

We stayed on the 28th and wanted to check out before we even checked in. We was showed through via court yard which was full of rubbish and washing that looked like it had been there a week. Our room was room 9 and it was awful. The wardrobe was almost falling over with the back half missing. A unit... More

I booked this before reading the reviews so was prepared for things to be a little rough around the edges but didn't believe it could be as bad as people had described. Unfortunately it was worse than I could have imagined and other people's photos do not give the full picture of how grimy and smelly it was. We travelled... More

Lovely weekend stay here, the room was clean and well space out. Staff was friendly and helpful. Right next to the beach and town which was a bonus. Only reason for 4 stars was because the bed was noisy every time you moved. Other than that I would defo come back here 😀

I was travelling by myself and wanted somewhere cheap to stay the night. Not a great choice, as I have stayed in cheaper places which were far better. The room was dirty, with stained bed sheets and bathroom floor, smelly carpet and curtains, dirty windows, it looked as if the room hadn't been cleaned in a long time. I stayed... More

What can I say? I have stayed in some cheap accommodation in my time but this takes the biscuit. If I was paid to go back I wouldn't. Couldn't get out quick enough. Myself & partner felt very uneasy and room, although spacious, was not clean and shower was terrible. I can only recommend AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

It really lives up to its name. Very old fashioned. In desperate need of decorating and furniture old and broken. The bed was very uncomfortable worse night sleep in a long time. An awful place. Other guests very noisy and rude. Found a hair in the dish at breakfast.we do not recommend this place. It was cheap and generally you... More
