One night stay whilst on business. When you consider the extremely low price paid you can't fault the hotel. Room was comfortable and clean, breakfast was okay . I paid £52 bed and breakfast which is extremely good valve for money, would stay again

Do not let the slightly dated exterior fool you. Great staff, good food, spot less rooms, but the best is the hotel position adjacent to a spotless beach. This was our first stay here, but with luck, we will be returning.

Visited this hotel for 2 nights myself, husband and 2 children aged 7 and 10. Hotel looks horrible from the outside but was lovely once you walked inside. Staff were lovely. Head receptionist Anne was lovely and friendly. Rooms were clean and had everything you needed. Kids loved the pool. We will deffo be going back for another visit.

Having stayed at this hotel before and enjoyed the bar meals we thought as we had friends visiting and staying there we would go there again. We tried the bar meal the week before the visit, my husband ordered the curry and I ordered the ham salad, unfortunately they hadn't any ham so I picked the chicken salad, looked lovely... More

Having stayed before we knew the dogs would be happy. They were. However, our experience was marred because of two huge party events on one night and another on our final night. The noise was expected and bearable both in our room and on the ground floor in the restaurant and bar. What wasn't bearable was the poor quality of... More

The outside of the hotel is unkempt and sadly in need of a makeover but there were some good features about this hotel. The dining area is in the conservatory and nicely decorated. The full English was decent and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel accepts dogs and was well patronised for this reason. If you are a... More

You would be forgiven for being a little disappointed when you drive up to this ugly building but as the old saying goes - don't judge a book by its cover. Walking into the sparkly lobby the whole place changes. We've stayed on a number of occasions now and have always been greeted in a friendly way by the staff... More

We stayed one night at a weekend - its a no fuss and convenient location. Check in was friendly and easy, and breakfast was good; the young staff were polite and the service was quick. Downsides are an archaic heating system which occasionally gives a loud bang to raise a smile, outside lights brighter than the sun, and a car... More

Do not take any notice of the scruffy outside as it is really nice inside. Rooms are nicely decorated and the beds comfy. Staff are pleasant and nothing is too much trouble. The only downside for us was that people are allowed to have their dogs in their rooms.
