On arrival we were shown to our room on the ground floor which was dated. A peach coloured bathroom suite made it look very tatty. No aircon meant opening tbe window which was directly below the main rail line which was very noisy. Wooden floor boards meant a lit of noise from the room above, toilet flushing, running taps and...

The food was really good and plentiful and the vegetarian options were very good and looking out at the sea from the dining room was lovely. We also found... More

The hotel manager greeted us by telling us we could not park there as there was a coach coming, and suggested we park on the street instead. This seemed to set... More

Stayed in this hotel July 8th-10 2016. On entering the room 27 was appalled at the hygiene within the room. I first noticed blood Staines on the valence sheet as we entered the room followed by cracked sink with hair in from previous guest. The toilet seat was old and very used and the sealent around the shower cubicle was... More

We have just recently stayed here for 3 days with bed breakfast and evening meal and although the first night i experienced a bad sleep due to another unrespectful guest staying next door, the overall stay was amazing and this hotel should no way be only 2 stars. The staff were lovely and friendly and very helpful and the food... More
