Booked this for my daughter although I have stayed before. Managed to fit them in one evening although they are usually pretty fully booked. Lovely room with balcony, excellent very helpful staff. Good breakfast and reasonably priced dinner in attractive restaurant. Nice swimming pool. Thoroughly recommended.

Our room was on the top floor accessed by the lift or stairs (sometime the lift was a bit busy) it looked out on to the high street, although quite a small room, it was lovely and clean and the...

13th year of staying here and once again we were not disappointed. Everything from the rooms to the staff, food and service was second to none. The staff can't do enough for you and even arranged to have a mattress topper put on my bed as I was struggling to adjust to a different bed due to a bad back... More

Great hotel. The hotel is situated right opposite the beach. Me and my cousins enjoyed our short stay. The staff were really nice and friendly. Additionally I love the fact they have a play room for children. They have a snooker table and table tennis table. There was also a lovely swimming pool. I would highly recommend it. Hamzah from...

We arrived on a wet day, pretty hungry and so we were relieved to see they accommodated children! Menu was good and reasonably priced! Great beach side place with nice food and a small play area indoors for children which we loved.

My parents were on a coach holiday at this hotel recently when my dad had a stroke. I have to say the staff at the hotel were amazing to us and went out of their way to help us with our situation. We couldn't fault them. The hotel itself is a traditional hotel which is a lovely change from the... More
