Very pleasant hotel which exceeded my expectations - dinner and breakfast particularly good. Room basic but comfortable and very good value for money. Although overlooked main road - not much traffic during night. Only difficulty was limited parking - had to use public car park a couple of minutes walk away.

This hotel had the most amazing brand new fluffy white towels ever! Met a lady while out walking who told us the hotel was under new ownership. The bed linen was very clean and seemed new. Breakfast was nicely cooked and tasty. I would like to return in the future and see what the new owners have done with the... More

We went to this hotel for the first time. The owners were some of the most welcoming and friendly hotel owners we have ever met. The hotel is truely dog friendly - even bringing sausages for their breakfast. The food was fantastic and not over priced. I would recommend this hotel to any one but particularly dog owners!

We were made to feel very welcome which is important - our room was very small but we had a great view. The shower room was just acceptable, we got a warm wetting and we were able to dry ourselves, that's all I could safely say about it. The breakfast was ok - and was served until 10.00 am which...

We stayed here on a mid week break, 13th-15th April, and manged to get a hotel parking space, however we were asked to move our car for another guest relating to the car rally the following day. We complied but were disappointed by this request that has coloured our view of the hotel. The cooked breakfasts were good but there... More

I enjoyed my night here, in a 'classic' old style English seaside hotel. Quiet and just a little bit jaded (the hotel, not me, ;-), but all the facilities you need at an excellent price. Breakfast was really good- again, an old style 'English', all the trimmings. Lovely cafetiere coffee too. Room was a tad cold, as was the shower,... More

We arrived in the pouring rain so drove straight round the back to the small car park (a tight entrance off the street). We tried to find our way into the hotel reception from there, but the entrance we found looked so awful we were convinced we weren't in the right place so we went back round the front. It... More

A rambling old hotel with lovely friendly staff with a welcome for all. Some of the stairways smelt a little of damp and the public rooms and rear entrance were a little cluttered and perhaps in need of a spruce up but the bedrooms were homely and full of quaint charm. Its very reasonably priced and dogs are welcomed too.... More
