My wife and I stayed here for one night before travelling to the Isle of Wight. The room we were allocated was small and overlooked the car park.

The staff are the friendliest we have come across in any Hotel chain we have stayed in before and couldn't do enough for us. It has a lovely bar with bar food and view to the sea and...

we had a wonderful wedding with reception here and cannot recommend it highly enough. The Ark Royal room was beautiful, the food fantastic - both the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet. The bride felt really special and nothing was too much trouble for the team that ran the event and the staff generally in the hotel. It was also...

Booked a double and single room and was upgraded to a sea view. Double room spacious with excellent sea views. Room well equipped and very clean....

The rooms are very clean also all the public areas and restaurant. Lovely views from the restaurant and the lounge bar. They also have function rooms available. They provide bar meals...

This should be a gem - prime position on the seafront, wonderful building, little competition. And yet, and yet. This is a local for us. And - the service at the bar is woeful- rude and slow. Outside space is so poor - a few tables virtually on the pavement. Food looks great to be fair but because if the...
