Thank you for your great review, we are delighted to see you enjoyed your stay with us, we agree Philomena is a ray of sunshine each morning, there is nothing nicer than fish and chips by the sea side. We have noted your comments about the leisure club towels.

The staff were friendly and the rooms were nice and quite spacious. An iron/board in the wardrobe which is always helpful.

Very comfortable and well equipped hotel in a lovely beachside location. We only stayed the one night following the wedding and reception and did not use the restaurant. However the full English breakfast was excellent and all the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. I would recommend this hotel for a nice relaxing weekend by the sea.

We went here today for a wake, and it was a lovely hotel, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was lovely, and overall it was a nice experience, obviously would have been nicer if it was on different circumstances. But would recommend.
