The restaurant is very spacious the excellent food served buffet style. The breakfast was one of the best but did lack continental style foods. The swimming... More

We had a pleasant weekend in this hotel the décor is a bit dated and could do with new carpets. Had a problem with the Bath on first night which was rectified the next day but alas the shower could not be controlled it was scorching hot or very cold. On arrival we found the lift had broken down and... More

As a base to visit the area and for somewhere to rest your head this is probably OK, which is all we wanted. As others have said it is dated and needs a lick of paint everywhere really inside and out. Didn't eat here as I ate down in Wooly itself, but friends who did said the breakfast was ok.... More

Stayed at this hotel last weekend and as other reviewers have said it does need some TLC and updating our bathroom in particular. but the food was good the staff lovely. our room had nice views over the valley and it's worth asking for a room on the front of the hotel. The highlight of the weekend for us was... More

I wanted a nice place close to the sea, well this is pretty much what I got... This hotel is very old and by my experience preffered by the elderly... No disrespect to them, but it was mainly elderly guests. My girfriend and I were the only two young couple, the rest 50+, but for them is great because they... More

This is the second year that I have visited this hotel with my family and I was really hoping that there would be some overall improvement a year on, but sadly not. The lift no longer works and apparently it won't be fixed for the foreseeable future. The decor is still terrible, patio doors didn't open -which was probably a... More
