So disappointed. The room cost £183 per night, had a beautiful view and could have been lovely, but the hotel did not provide anything like the quality or service that you would expect for that charge. There was no where to boil the kettle other than on the floor or hot water for a bath or shower. The hotel was...

We arrived just after 12 noon and we're advised our room wasn't ready but the friendly staff handed us a car park permit which lasted for two days and...

Stayed here on a Friday night to go on a Conference at the Spa the following day. The location was perfect - a short distance from the cliff lift that goes down to the sea front. The room was comfortable - as was the bed - not the height of luxury but chosen for the reasonable price so did not...

We visited this hotel as part of a group from our local RBL club. We arrived late on Friday evening as arranged with the hotel, and was given our key,room 300, by a young chap who disappeared almost as soon as he handed the key over. We found out a few minutes later that his failure to authorise our credit...

I didn't put this review up immediately because I stayed in the hotel for some friend's wedding who was getting married there, so didn't want to upset them if they saw this too soon after the wedding... Anyway... the summary is. This place is rubbish. - When I booked over the phone the receptionist did not know the wedding rate....
