This was our second visit to The Best Western and hopefully won't be our last. Were allocated a superb room overlooking The Scores,Beach & First tee. The bathroom probably needs updating but was spacious, bright with lovely toiletries. Service is super friendly. We had breakfast included which has a cold buffet as well as freshly cooked to order hot items...

We booked in for one nights stay last weekend. Unfortunately we lost the coin toss for the rooms and ended up in room 107 at the back of the hotel, supposedly an upgrade to a junior suite. The others were in room 214- much better standard of room. Heating wasn't on so room was freezing. Large room but very tired...

Stayed at this hotel for only one night but found it to be great value for money. Very friendly staff across the board notably the barman in the main bar and the breakfast staff. Cracking view from our room , the mark has to reflect situation, cleanliness and value for money , it does and I will be back asap.

Rooms are well equipped with the most comfortable beds and lovely white bed linen. Bathrooms fixtures have definitely seen better days but still very functional, lovely fluffy towels with the usual bathroom accessories. Tea, coffee, water and biscuits...

We had a room overlooking the sea - what a fabulous view! The restaurant service was excellent and the food very good. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the 'special offer' price we got from the the hotel website made this a real bargain. Would certainly recommend.
