“Clean and comfortable with lots of stairs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Room 10 is a small double, but comfortable - sea view and nicely refurbished with shower room. Very clean. Not easy carrying bags and cases up lots of stairs with fire doors, but minor complaint and I would stay again.

Stayed June 2013

Room with a lovely view of the sea. Great to wake with the sound of the waves crashing onto the beach. Comfortable bed, updated bathroom. Fresh water every morning in the room. Wardrobe an after thought and a little small. Helpful, polite staff.
Breakfast was good and served by very friendly ladies. Hotel lounge/dining room a little dated and the music was so bad I had to get up and turn it off! The food needs working on. Tasty lamb but totally overcooked. Fish cakes dry, needs a sauce of some kind. Couldn't eat later than 7.30 which was to early.
Overall, would stay again just not eat there.

Room Tip: Room 10 situated at the front of the hotel, so fantastic view. Beware though, when the windows were...

You can tell this hotel is well managed by the attention to detail and quality. Only the crisps were horrible (lamb and mint). Everything else was really good and I was made to feel very welcome. Lovely sunset was seen from the bar over the sea at the front, and a neat lawn and private car park at the rear.

Stayed due to my normal hotel being fully booked. Room (7) is at the top of the stairs with an excellent view out over the bay. Clean and tidy if a little dated. Evening meal; can't comment on the quality as meals are only served between 7 and 8 pm which is no good if you either arrive late or prefer to eat later in the evening. You need to go into town if you want to eat later than 8pm on the front as the only other decent spot also stops serving at 8. Breakfast was very good. Staff at all levels including the students doing a few hours at breakfast were all very good and friendly. Biggest downside was the price. Cannot understand why rates are so high. Maybe with the new competition including the forthcoming premier inn right on the front the independents including this one will clue up and offer sensible rates and extended dining hours.

we only stayed 1 night very polite and helpful staff, room clean and tidy. food wasn't best here asked for our steak medium it came well done (think that's because steak was so thin) loved the location of this hotel right on the sea front not far from shops. we will definitely be revisiting this hotel, but wont be having evening meal next time. breakfast lovely.

we stayed here for 2 nights as i was visiting the uni. Although the decor is a little tired looking it was clean and the staff are so welcoming. Our room was a good size the bed was comfortable & we looked out over the sea which was lovely. We didn't have the evening meal but the breakfast was very yummy and kept us going well into the afternoon. I would stay here again.

Spent two nights at this hotel and was very impressed with the room, very comfortable and relatively spacious which was unexpected. fabulous view of the promenade. WiFi worked well throughout and staff were friendly and helpful.

Good breakfast with eggs and hot items cooked to order and decent plunger coffee!

Well located for restaurants and services, including laundromat in the next street.
