Stayed two nights with my wife and enjoyed excellent hospitality and fine food, well stocked bar and good service, even the mattress was changed when we mentioned it was not 100%, so no complaints for what we paid for two nights.

Only niggle might be the bathroom could be a little bigger in the room we had.

We stayed 2 nights in a comfortable room with sea view. The staff were friendly especially in the well run atmospheric restaurant, serving good food. There was a good choice of well kept ales served by well informed bar staff.We liked the location of the Hotel, being quietly situated near the old Fishertown and only 2 minutes from the beach. Excellent value!

We stopped for lunch here in early September, directed here by the bookshop owner in Nairn. The best steak sandwich I have had EVER, and two generous glasses of very cold, very dry white wine were served by a friendly and efficient waiter. We had a great view of the bandstand and out to sea. I would definitely recommend this place.

We stopped here for four nights and had a really nice time. The staff were friendly and the food (and real ales) was of an exceptional quality. Our bedroom was long and narrow which meant that one of us had to sqeeze along a wall to get into bed but other than that the room was fine.
The view towards the sea was stunning and the 'prom' was close enough to enjoy an evening stroll.

The location was great on the beach and we got a room with a view which was nice. The bartender checked us in and didn't mention that you have to turn on the hot water for the shower so I washed my hair in the cold. I could have called down to check what I was doing wrong but I was annoyed and it didn't cross my mind until after I froze to death. Everything is pretty dated but that's what you get for the price. The service in the restaurant that night and in the morning was excelant as was the food. If you don't expect much and want a good price this is the place for you.

We stoped over for 2 nights and found the Hotel very nice.
The Bedroom was very clean and had a great view of the beach.
Morag and her staff were 5*****Nothing was to much truble.
The food was amazzzzing and the biggest onion rings i have ever seen and the young girl with the long Dark Hair (Jane i think) was a fab waitress.

The town was small but found what we were looking for (Dumpling Scotch Sausage and Black Pud to take home)

Thanks Again for a fab stay.

Kind Regards

Mr & Mrs Dobbs Colchester Essex England

We will be back 1 day for a longer visit.
