On arrival at this hotel we were greeted by a very pleasant lady. We had made a mistake with our booking, but instead of the manager explaining to us graciously that nothing could be done, he literally turned his back and said 'tough'. The room was adequate though, clean, tidy and comfortable, although the bedroom door wasn't very secure. The... More

The exterior of the hotel hardly inspired confidence, it is in much need of refurbishment. This theme continued throughout, as you enter you are greeted by a very tired looking hotel, threadbare carpets, ripped furniture and a very tired feel about the place. The bedroom was actually alright if a little dated, the bathroom wasn't great with an awful shower,... More

I can't understand how places like this can demand such high prices to stay for a night. These days, places like this are unacceptable. The facade is tired The threadbare carpets in reception. The state of the furniture. The attitude of the staff checking in. The doors in the rooms don't fit properly. The bathrooms are substandard. The breakfast was... More

Stayed with my fiance for a weekend break. Awful horrible hotel. Do not stay here. It absolutely stinks inside. Dirty carpets, awful old fashioned decor. There are no words to describe this hotel. the guy on reception is ignorant. Breakfast wasn't too bad and the waitress was pleasant. Nice views but that is its only saving grace. Overpriced as well.... More

We stayed for a three night break in mid-July; whilst the hotel could do with some refurbishment we found our room (on the third floor) to be clean with comfortable beds. The bathroom was also clean and fully functional although a little cramped. Service was good and friendly and the breakfasts quite good. It certainly isn't a modern hotel but... More

Great location on North Beach. We stayed in room 303 and it had a great view. Ok, so the hotel needs a little tlc BUT it's... More

My friend booked this for a 'catch up' break away. Though it is a great location and our room overlooked sea front that is all it has going for it. The staff were friendly and pleasant though our room was appalling. The bedding was clean and bed comfy. The windows were dirty and the glass cracked, curtains were falling apart.... More

We had booked two twin rooms for a Saturday night and after reading Trip Advisor comments we were expecting the worst! We walked into the hotel and we're met by the manky carpet - a real put off! Then we went to check in and the man at the counter told us we couldn't check in until 2pm. We asked... More

I feel I have to write and express my utter disappointment following our recent stay. I booked a night away for myself and my partner as we'd not seen a great deal of each other lately due to work commitments. I looked at your hotel and to be quite honest with you, it was the location that was the selling... More
