When we arrived to check in, the hotel was bursting with activity. The bar, restaurants and lobby were all full of people enjoying their afternoons. We got a very warm...

We were looking forward to our Boxing Day lunch, and unfortunately it proved to be very disappointing. Our soup starter arrived cold with no bread, having sent this back, we waited about 10 mins for it to be returned, with the bread arriving another 10 mins later. Our main course was monk fish, which was chewy! and we had to...

As we were only waiting for a burger and a light bite 40mins seemed excessive all the other tables were the same. We inquired as to why the...

The hotel is part of the Shepherd-Neame group. The hotel occupies a great location on the edge of the sea. Most room s have a great view. There is a car park at the rear. The staff are always very helpful. The rooms clean and pleasant and have a good selection of toiletries.
