The hotel was excellent with such friendly staff. We had a delicious dinner with friends and family. The facilities were very good and the staff provided great service. I would definitely recommend staying here and we will be back later in the year.

It is over a year since our last trip here but if anything it has got better - and it was great before. The reception was friendly and welcoming as were the staff, booking for the restaurant that night was easy with a choice of times, the room was clean, comfortable and a decent size.

Stayed here for a friends wedding and didn't want to leave. Staff were friendly helpful and welcoming. The hotel is right on the beach so perfect location and views from our room. Food is a 10/10 and the menu is so different to your run of the mill chicken, burgers, steaks. 100% would come again ❤️❤️❤️

Visited here tonight with friends for dinner. Food is fine and certainly plenty on the plate but it felt a little pre packaged, a way of catering which has been bought in. The main course, a burger was excellent but there was a spicy coleslaw which was off putting with it. Pudding was OK but again little thought has gone... More

A birthday dinner for three of us (4 in party) - decided to skip a starter and glad I did as the main meal portion was huge - Steak Pie and chips with veg - delicious.

Went out for a nice evening meal but it was not as good as expected. We had a combo starter to share which was nice with a good mix. But the main of lasagne was rubbish. Only one layer of pasta and a very poor attempt at a sauce. It was like a child had cooked it at school. Good... More
