Location of hotel was beautiful, view from the seafront windows lovely. Peaceful hotel. Could do with updating. Wanted to eat at the hotel, but menu was not to our liking. No vegetarian option for evening meal or breakfast. Would not want to stay more than 1 night. Wifi was available but really, really slow. Rooms were small and cramped.

If internet connectivity is important to you, stay somewhere else. At no point throughout my 2 night stay did I manage to get internet connectivity on either a tablet or a laptop. Although able to connect to the wifi router in my 2nd floor room, the router was not connected to the internet. And I failed to connect at all... More

Stayed here for one night. Very friendly staff who were helpful and gave us help with directions and restaurant suggestions. Had a suite with a view of the carpark which was quiet. The room was huge with a big bed, sitting room and bathroom with modern fittings, roll top bath and big waterfall shower. All very clean although the decor... More

I was here for a family wedding and it went so well until sadly my 80 year old Mother took sick but they could not do enough to help us in calling the emergency services and ensuring that upon our return they could assist in her wellbeing. There was also a mature waitress, sadly I didn't get her name but... More

Nice large rooms wirh sea view, but not a particulalry fancy or spectacular place. The common areas are sad and poorly decorated. The staff were not very helpful when we complained about the noise from a nearby room in the middle of the night, not when we asked for other asistance. Not good value for money either.

Lovely hotel & friendly, helpful staff. Room was very clean, modern and spacious (we had 3 rooms in 'our room' 3E) huge bed, and equally huge modern bathroom. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Lovely place, and well worth the money. Would highly recommend.

Our coach party were met by the enthusiastic staff who were helpful and happy throughout our stay. The hotel had amazing sea views and we all enjoyed the super food which was served in the lovely orangery. We would consider staying here again sometime in the future.
