Stayed one night in deluxe room - expensive but lovely sea views. Room was quite big and comfy but could do with extras like hairdryer, mini fridge to make it 4*. Staff really friendly and helpful. Nice bar - quite small but wasn't busy when we were there. Very good breakfast but only served until 9.30am, which is a bit...

Spent 4 days over Christmas, had a relaxing, enjoyable stay. Food was excellent, staff attentive, friendly & caring. Our dog most welcome, which is important to us as dog owners. We hope to return in the future. Very many thanks to all.

Stayed here Christmas 2015 and 2016 - on both occasions the room was very clean, a reasonable size and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel corridors and stairwells feel a little dated but the restaurants and the bar are more modern and well decorated/furnished, as are the bedrooms - you can see the hotel is gradually being improved and...

Cons - the room was very very dirty, lots of items were broken or damaged, needs to to be updated throughout, price was cheap, would not return or recommend. Positive note they use mattress and pillow protectors plus friendly staff.

We stayed here for a single night out of season, and did little other than check-in, sleep, and check-out again. The room was a comfortable double with a good sized bed and bedding, an ensuite shower/WC that was functional but with dated design, and a view to the bin store at the rear. The two members of staff we met...

This hotel made no particular impression on me as nothing special about it although, to be fair, nothing bad either. Reception staff friendly, room clean, comfortable bed but old fashioned dressing table seemed inappropriate. Unclear what kind of ambience they are aiming for... Value for money, but I would not stay there again.

Booked the hotel for my wife's 50th birthday party. Absolutely perfect, a great venue, with the attitude that nothing is too much trouble. Amazing staff, amazing food and lovely clean and bright rooms. All of the guests were very complimentary about the hotel even those who were just there for the party and weren't staying. Couldn't have asked for a...
