The hotel is in an excellent location, on the beach front There are kids rides across the road and mini golf just down the road Unfortunately we didn't have a sea view but some rooms did. The room was huge we had a suite. The negatives about the hotel is that it's tired, carpets aren't fitted right, wallpaper coming off...

This should not be advertised as a hotel, as it is more like a run down hostel. The place is falling apart with boarded up windows, and horrible beds. The food made myself ill was freezing cold and disgusting. By far the worse place that I have ever stayed at so grateful that I did not take the children. Most...

We've stayed here twice - mainly because of it's location and lovely views. Yes, it is shabby, dated, etc. but the bedlinen has always been spotless, towels changed daily. We take our own pillows as theirs are thin and hard. We were upgraded (as we'd stayed there a couple of years ago) and had a second floor corner room =...

More like a hostel than a hotel, room was horrible would never stay again, only 2 plug sockets worked and 1 of them was hanging off the wall, TV was useless as could only watch 2 channels, music from the pub next door was unbearable, avoid this hostel at all costs, the only positive I would give was checking out!!!...

Awful awful awful! The hotel and room is old, dated, unclean and quite frankly falling apart. The glass in our window was cracked, the plug sockets were coming away from the wall, the carpet hadn't been hoovered or cleaned as there were crumbs and bits all over the floor when we arrived. The carpet also didn't go all the way...

I booked two single rooms for two evenings B&B. I first noticed on entering my room that the TV aerial was out of it's wall socket and would not stay in when replaced, this was rectified by a member of staff using brute force to keep it in place. He then at, my request, demonstrated a complicated procedure to set...

Stayed here for one night. Rooms clean and comfortable defiantly a little dated, but the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good value and set us up for the day. If you want a cheap clean stop in a great location look no further.

Stayed here for a weekend in early July. The hotel is badly in need of refurbishment in many respects. Decoration and carpeting look like they haven't been touched in decades. Positives - bathroom and bed was clean. Breakfast on Saturday was like Fawlty Towers with orders being taken wrongly and mixed up but couldn't fault the Sunday service.
