“great weekend break”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

First time visiting this hotel and we weren't disappointed.
staff really friendly and helpful , we had brought our dog to this dog-friendly hotel and this allowed us a hotel break instead of having to leave him at home.
The room was adequate for our needs and even had a sea view.
The location is fantastic - practically on the beach.
The food was very good and the staff even set up a table in the lounge for our dinner and breakfast enabling us to have the dog beside us instead of being left in the room.
Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone considering a break here.

We have been to this hotel two or three times now, and would highly recommend it. The staff are very friendly and nothing is a bother. The food is great and the location is great. It would top it off if had leisure facilities but as there is not I just relaxed and enjoyed it all the same. Very clean and can find no faults with the Hotel.

Everything was very clean, but it is very old fashioned and not in a good way. My room was "disabled" or meant to be anyway. It was a double bed with very little space either side. I normally have a commode overnight that so I don't need to venture too far in the wheelchair. If I had the commode in place there was a tiny area on the other side for wheelchair to go in - which made very hard to move away from the bed in the morning being wedged to the wall. The bathroom was more for the walking disabled and not really wheelchair users. Lucky for me my upper body strength allowed me to get into and out of the bath with the two wall bars I don't think that people who are more disabled could do that. In the dining room they have a far superior disabled toilet which should be mirrored in the disabled bedroom bathrooms

The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. I think the hotel needs a upgrade with regards to rooms. The food was OK, but could do with more flexibility, no rolls at breakfast is hard when veggie.
