I held my wedding and reception at the Tower and the whole experience was faultless. From the minute we walk into the building we were spoilt by the professional but very friendly staff. We had family stay in the hotel as we did and all of the rooms are excellent. Spotlessly clean and very spacious. The area where we was... More

Great hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are spacious, well decorated and very comfortable. Are rare treat was the choice in pillows including lovely soft feather pillows. The room and rest of the hotel was spotlessly clean. Food was also very good. Would i stay at this hotel again, yes i would.

We stayed here one night precruise. The hotel itself is lovely - FREE wifi upstairs and downstairs. The food (we had dinner and breakfast) was excellent. The rooms were decorated beautifully and the gardens were lovely. We also liked that we could easily walk down to the water to the promenade and then walk around the village. The hotel arranged...

Stayed here for one night in business; on arrival at about 1530, we asked for coffee and although the bar was technically closed, we were welcomed in for our coffee. Rooms were comfortable and cosy, I had a lovely view of the water. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and aware of who was in our group so made sure... More

Stayed for one night pre ferry trip Have to say Marie stood out for her customer service and politeness made me feel welcome and could not ask for a better welcome. Was made to feel welcomed and at home by her Five star service from her and the rest of her staff

The room was at the back of the hotel and very stuffy / hot we had to open the windows and leave them open all night. Cooked English Breakfast was served too late to allow an early getaway... More

The Tower Hotel suited us nicely for a one-night pre-cruise stay. The rooms are spacious and the staff friendly. We decided to dine in the hotel for convenience and were pleasantly surprised, though breakfast was average fare. We struggled to get WiFi access.
