Stayed here for 2 nights at a weekend in mid September and the weather was lovely throughout . We had a promenade facing room on the first floor which was spacious and comfortable albeit a bit dated. The room and adjoining bathroom were very clean nice toiletries and nice fluffy towels. We were on a dbb deal so had a... More

Hotel in a very good position, close to all amenities. Nice room, comfortable lounge area but restaurant a bit crowded and not enough staff. The food was good and nice and hot. Asked for a disabled room which was on the ground floor, just up four steps but there was a lift. The bed was a little uncomfortable but got... More

Arrived at the hotel parking & check in fine. Room was spacious & clean with a view of the promenade maybe a little dated but it is a hotel with a bit of character so that did not matter to us. We used the pool & sauna area and this was OK & not busy at all. The major problem... More

The location was ideal, located on the Promenade with views across the seafront. Our room was excellent - a suite containing a double bedroom, bathroom with separate shower and large bath and a lounge with a TV. With an excellent view seaward. It could not be better and we thought it was really good. Now for some of the down-sides.... More

We just had a overnight stay, could be a beautiful hotel but really needs loads of investment. Small things could be put right like huge bathroom walk in shower needed a new showerhead, the paint work was all peeling off due to it being painted that many times, huge chips in all the doors needs striping back and starting again....

Hotel is dated, but overall not bad, breakfast good all be it the restraunt does get a little full. Bedroom was fine,but again dated decor. Bar prices a little pricey for a 3 star hotel, don't get anything special. We visited the hotel over the Flower Show Weekend, so the hotel was busy. Reported my coat & keys stolen from... More

Got a good price for a one night stay on a Friday, and the location was ideal - a short walk to the pier, and various attractions. However the reviews mentioning the squeaky floorboards are correct, and the walk from reception to our room was quite amusing. The room itself was fine - the view was great, the bed was... More

Sorry but this was a nightmare. The room we were in 136 was a box. TV aerial & scary were broken, so broken sound and picture. Shower was either scalding or freezing. Bed was a small double at best and uncomfortable, neither of us slept well. No air con. Hairdryer from 1970's was very slow to dry hair. When sat... More

Stayed here for the weekend the hotel is dated but clean and tidy, reception and cleaning staff helpful and friendly, dining room staff overworked and poorly managed lots of inadequacies too many to mention. We had a evening meal which was of poor quality. Overall I would stay here again but not dine there. We had a great time in... More

A grand old hotel full of charm. Reception was excellent as was housekeeping. We did however have a problem with our evening meal - we were shown to our table and then had to wait 25 minutes before being given a menu or offered a drink. Starters were ok but my main ( beetroot risotto ) was far too salty... More
