Fantastic hotel clean and modern. Family room was of an adequate size. It was nice and quiet even though we were surrounded by hotels. Only down side was its more like a 15 minute walk to the beach. Apart from that it was in a good location and would recommend.

Just got back yesterday from a stay at the Applewood Hotel, great for what I wanted which was a base for a family short break. Was made to feel very welcome and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Lovely dining room. Would have loved to eat breakfast in the garden but weather wasn't great for that. Great location only 5-10mins...

Only one night (this time) but it was memorable due to the staff, breakfast, facilities and garden. Had a fabulous stay and will be going back. The owners are delightful and spoke to everyone in the breakfast room, made us feel special.
