We arrived early and were greeted by the friendly staff. Given a nice cup of tea. The rooms were clean and comfy. Breakfast was great, loads to choose from. I would stay here again. The hotel is also away from all the hustle & bustle which made it great for a good nights sleep.

Twelve of us all went together for three nights at this hotel. Oh my goodness what a weekend, from the moment we were welcomed at the front doors of the hotel to the moment we were waved off what a fantastic time. Our ages ranged from 56 to nearly 80 male and female, couples and singles and not one problem... More

This hotel is lovely, the room had a wonderful seaview & was clean & tidy, the bed was a bit lumpy & may benefit from a mattress topper. The staff were very friendly & the free tea & coffee was a nice touch, also the breakfast set you up for the day. They have entertainment on saturday night which we... More

Thanks for your valued review Tracy. I'm real sorry that you found the bed lumpy. I always act on it when I get a report of a "lumpy" mattress and will usually change them within 2 hours of being reported. We have a great supplier of top quality mattresses (at a good price because I buy so many). I can't... More

I would not recommend this place to families. One member of the management was rude. The room was cold and bedding well below par (see photos) the breakfast conversation from other guest was sexual in nature which shocked my ten year old son. The second night there was a loud banging coming from the roof when I spoke to the... More

I'm so sorry you had this terrible experience. The pictures of the worn bedding saddens me. I can't understand why my bedroom staff think it's OK to put worn bedding on and find it quite bizarre. Clearly they need re-training...as do the housekeepers who check rooms before we issue keys to guests. As regards the room being cold....I am sorry... More

We arrived at the hotel and the rooms where not ready. We then went into town for a couple of hours. Our friends who where also booked arrived before us and they where turned away.

You both arrived drunk. When I asked your friend to leave he asked Gavin to go on the car park and sort it out! We called the police. I made the decision not to allow you to stay...we had a few families in and I didn't want them being disturbed by your drunken obnoxious behaviour. I hope this shows potential... More
