We chose the Aqua partially on the excellent reviews here, and partially because of the location. We had a sea facing room with a balcony, which meant we woke up to the sound of the sea and could open our curtains to a beautiful view. On the Friday night we were a bit tired so just went next door to...

This hotel is lovely. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is tasty and filling. Recommend the smoked haddock and poached egg. The location is great, right on the seafront with great views and within easy reach of all the attentions you'd like to see. We had rooms 2(single with balcony and sea view) and 10 single with cliff/garden view. Both...

Friendly staff, but this is more of a guest house rather than a hotel. We had upgraded to one of the rooms with a balcony on the 2nd floor (Room 16), which although small, had beautiful views across the bay. The room had a lovely(and very clean) bathroom, however this is not a room for those who enjoy a shower,...

Cream Tea was a very large homemade fruit scone with butter jam and clotted cream and a pot of tea and all for just £4.50 per person. Excellent location situated right on the...

I had a fabulous evening meal in the Aqua Hotel last night. We started with the Crab ramekin, which was absolutely full of crab and tasted beautiful. Then I had the fish pie that was to die for. My friend had liver and bacon and that was beautiful too. Fortunately the weather was so warm we were able to eat...

Stopped for lunch and drinks. Have to say this place was excellent. Food was hot with waitress service place you order inside. There was steps up to the entrance didn't see any wheelchair access. We sat outside the view was great. Toilets spotlessly clean. As was the rest of what I saw. There was also home made food.
