Stayed for one night as part of a short break - the room was clean and comfortable. Nice en suite. Check in was quick and efficient. Great to have off-street parking available. Nice seating area overlooking seafront. Pleasant bar/sitting area courtyard. Only thing I was a bit surprised about was that there was a designated smoking area with ashtrays, and... More

The hotel is directly opposite the beach and is adults only. The music was quite loud in the bar area when we arrived but we... More

We stayed over for a night on the way down to Cornwall as we did last year and it is obvious that a lot of work has been done to upgrade the hotel. Excellent location with good sea views in a clean and tidy if modest room (much improved bathroom) and when we were there at least, a quiet and... More

We arrived here quite late on the sunday night, we had an upgrade because I told them it was my birthday treat, the room we had was very spacious and had a wonderful sea view.

The room was very tired looking and did smell a bit of cigarette smoke and was also quite musty. Beds were reasonably comfortable and... More

Stayed here twice in the last year and the hotel has undergone some serious renovation in that time with rooms and bathrooms massively improved. It used to have a large bar at the front and many members of the public would frequent it however that area is being made in to extra bedrooms so the bar is much smaller and... More
