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.

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.

We couldn't fault them. The hotel itself is a traditional hotel which is a lovely change from the... More

Great location, great food, very clean with an excellent friendly team. We were there for 3 nights for a family reunion with ages ranging from 15 to 85 - everyone said we should have been longer! Highly recommended!
