My friends and I have been twice this year and have had a fantastic time at this hotel we have been on country and western themed holidays and have booked to return at the end of January. I must say a big thank you to Steff and all his staff who went that extra mile to make our stay so enjoyable. The food is excellent the chef makes lovely food but his desserts mmmmmmmmmm!
The lift is small but at least theres a lift and it didn't cause much problems only checking in and out but if it was bigger it still would be same with volume of people.

Room Tip: No swimming pool but are able to use The Hilton Hotel facilities if you ask at reception. We stayed...

This was our second stay at the New President and once again we cannot fault this hotel.

We booked on a very cheap deal through UK Breakaways.We were given a lovely large refurbished room on the third floor (310)with a sea view which was kept spotlessly clean during our stay with fresh towels every day. Room was a little cold on arrival due to the heating being on a timer, but we were given a small efficient heater which we used when necessary.

All the staff were very pleasant and helpful, the food was excellent and entertainment was varied and good even though the hotel was only half full due to the time of year.

Well done New President, looking forward to another visit in the summer.

We stayed here for a country and western break for 5 days in December. We found the service to be first class, the food was excellent (top quality and plenty of it) and the whole hotel was clean and tidy. We have already booked for our third stay in February, and we are liking forward to our fourth stay in November too.

Just returned from another enjoyable four night break at The New President.We are regular repeat visitors,we have stayed here four times during the past six months which is testament to how highly we rate this hotel.Our rooms were spacious,very clean and the beds were comfortable.The breakfasts and evening meals are buffet style,the food is beautifully presented by the chef and his excellent cuisine offers a varied menu each evening to suit all tastes.The staff in the restaurant are so friendly and helpful,they quickly remove your used plates and cutlery from the tables to make your dining experience more comfortable.There is bingo each evening interspersed between the entertainment in Kennedys Bar which varies each evening.George and Steph are the main comperes and do a great job each evening.As always,we certainly enjoyed our short break and look forward to returning again in the near future

We enjoyed staying at the New President. The room was spotless and shower room beautiful, I think we must have got a newly refurbished room. Food was good and the entertainment what we saw of it as we were out most evenings was OK. My only concern initially was that the room was cold heating wasn't working however that was soon remedied. I think this hotel and the trip with National was extremely good value for money.
