Really well decorated and maintained hotel. the style appealed to me - maintaining the classic feel but done in a modern way with lots of clean lines and contemporary colours. The room itself was large (executive double) and had a nice shower room and lounge area. Breakfast was very nice - and service was great. I've stayed in two of... More

The hotel only had a small double room left and as it was only for one night, it was more than adequate. The staff were very friendly and keen to help. The room was nicely decorated although it could probably do with a little freshening up. Breakfast was lovely and a good selection was offered - all freshly cooked to... More

We had a fantastic stay at this hotel. Although close to amenities and beach, it is set in a quiet road, so we enjoyed the peace. Really friendly, helpful staff and the breakfast was wonderful. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend.
