I stayed here recently with a friend travelling on a JustGo Holiday and considering we had no choice on accommodation we struck lucky. Having asked for a twin room we were overjoyed to find a family room with 4 single beds and plenty of room to spread out. Also having a separate toilet to bathroom was useful. Our room on the first floor was very close to a lift and stairs direct to the dining room which was also useful. Despite the hotel being so close to a main road we weren't disturbed by traffic noise only waking each morning to the sound of what we discovered to be a leaf blower being operated daily in a nearby park. My friend is a smoker and appreciated the covered balcony for her to enjoy her cigs.
The hotel is just across the road from the beach so we could enjoy a couple of walks along the prom and it is also close to the shops and harbour.
I enjoyed swimming in the pool despite it being quite small and had it to myself a couple of times only sharing with a few people other times. The jacuzzi was a very nice experience too. .
The meals were excellent and although there were a few things I didn't eat that was down to personal taste not the quality of food. The one thing I was rather disturbed about was seeing a stuffed fox hunched over a pheasant on top of the cooked breakfast buffet stand, but I got used to averting my eyes as the bacon was to die for!
We found the staff to be friendly, helpful and efficient and all in all had a wonderful stay.
