“Great modern hotel for a weekend away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

We wanted a night out by the coast and decided on a hotel rather than a b&b. it was very clean and up to date with modern door key cards which were also for the main door as extra security. Room was spacious with a king size bed. En suite was a bit small but still did the trick. There was a bit of noise from the bar downstairs but we expect that. The only thing missing from the experience is the lack of breakfast. A buffet in the pub at the front would have topped a great night off!

Decided to stay in a hotel this time rather than a caravan and was very impressed with the cleanness modernness and the quality. Good price would stay again, bit noisey untill 12 but then that's skeggy for you really

I stayed here for 3 nights with my partner & little boy, the room was very nice, modern & clean.
Staff was very friendly & helpful.
Room was cleaned everyday, even though they said it would be cleaned once.
Kept us topped up with tea & coffee making facilities.
The bar underneath did have music playing till early hours but we managed to get to sleep no problem.
There was kids running up & down the corridor but thats not the hotels fault its the parents.
Would definately go again

If you have children I do not recommend this hotel. The bar is directly below and music(parties) carry on till 2am.
Right where do I start, the room. Basic, yes I know it's cheap but it's so poor I wouldn't let my dog stay there. The pillows were so awful, the bed, nice and big but the mattress awful. We had to have a family room with no intentions of using the single bed. No pillow case used and looked like there was blood all over it. Obviously this side was down, wasn't until I turned it over to use it on the master bed as you only get one crappy pillow each.
The window wouldn't close properly so the room was freezing. Couldn't go down and complain as there isn't any staff there after 7pm.
The bathroom, well omg I've never seen anything so small, I had to stand up to wipe otherwise you had your head in the sink. The only good thing I can say is that there is a hair dryer in the room.
Oh and don't let the pic fool you, the picture of the entrance because that's all it is, tucked around the back of a scummy pub. Looks nice and modern but it really isn't.
The only people I would recommend this hotel is a party of lads for a night out because they really don't cater for families or couples. I gor recommended to stay at hotel number 8 but choose it's sister hotel instead. What a big mistake. £49 what a complete waste of money. Good luck if you stay there.

The hotel is overall poor value for money!
The fact the family room was too small, and the bathroom was a joke. No room to even dry yourself in without banging yourself left right, and centre!
The family bar was filthy, the furniture had chewing gum attached to it, holes all over the seats!
The children's entertainer decided it was also appropriate to take the pool cue and grind with it in front of children!!
The noise is also a major issue if you have children.. Don't expect much sleep if you stay here!
Never ever again would I step foot in this dump!!

Clean compact room. Ideal location for bars, beach and Fantasy Island and market. Great value for money. Friendly staff, good entertainment in the bars, choice of family disco or entertainer. Visited during October, still busy though out of the summer season. Would definately use again.

Me and my fiancé went here for a cheap weekend get away. I was 6 months pregnant and the low beds in the room was not ideal. The bathroom is really small. The room was clean just very small. The location was fantastic but as the bar had entertainment on at night and there is an arcade next door it was very noisey till very late.
