Very pleasant stay, room was clean and comfortable on 3rd floor, room 332. Staff very friendly especially Lauren in the dinning room. The meals were delicious and varied. Service was excellent. The hotel itself could do with a complete overhaul. The downside to this holiday is the coaches. If it's advertised as a Daish coach holiday then why not use... More

The Service was average, the room needs to be updated everything needs to be replace!, The food was okay nothing special, Car parking is a nightmare, lucky there was Terry who does a terrific job of helping people with their cars and luggage in our case.

Just spent a lovely relaxing holiday with my daughter. Comfortable, clean room. Food served quickly and nice varied menu. As it also caters for coaches it was possible to book a day trip on their coach for a very nominal charge, but also the hotel is well placed on the seafront with a bus stop right outside the door.
