      Excellent location, clean, comfortable and good value for money. Lovely breakfast and great to have free parking in a town centre. We will use it again.

      Very close to the Town, really nice Bar area which was open 24 hours. Very reasonable rate and good Breakfast included

    • Single

      Staff were very friendly and the whole experience was comfortable.

      It is a small hotel so there is no restaurant for dinner and few facilities beyond the basics.

    • Older travelers

      Good location for town centre, value for money and nice breakfasts.

      Every floorboard creaked in the room. Why can the hotel not employ English speaking staff that would be a nice touch !!!

      Hotel needs to be updated. The reception is fine, but the rooms are very dated.

    • Couple
      8.2

      The staff were very nice and the breakfast was great.

      The telephone in the room was attached to the headboard of the bed which was a bit irritating, and one of the lights in the bathroom didn't work.

    • Older travelers

      bar and dining room decorated in a nice thai style drinks were expensive

      room was small and very hot service at breakfast was poor had to wait for half an hour to be served with the cooked breakfast

    • Single

      Very good value, very pleasant room - very clean and fresh looking hotel with up to date facilities i.e. free WiFi. and good bathroom. Excellent breakfast and included in price.

      Only small point I noticed was damaged wall sockett near bed though not dangerous.

    • Older travelers

      Helpful receptionist.

      It was incredibly noisy as there was a stag party group of young men who were already drunk in the middle of the afternoon. There was also a hen party group staying there. All these people arrived back at the hotel after 3 am, so our sleep was constantly disturbed. We were also harassed in the bar by another group of revellers. I question whether the hotel should have continued serving drinks to people already deeply intoxicated.

    • Group of friends

      Hotel was okay but i managed to loss my key in the hotel room as was unable to find it. This resulted in me obtaining a fine of £40 and i didnt think was very fare considering a key cut would only be about £5. Im almost 100% sure the key will be found inside the hotel as the policy states that nobody is to take their key out, which was obeyed. Rip Off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      In spite of a wedding taking place the Hotel room was peaceful. Breakfast was good.

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      The reception and lounge area was very attractively decorated and inviting. All the staff we dealt with were very pleasant and helpful.

      The bedrooms were very basic and the blinds in our room were broken in places. The room was also at the front of the hotel so was quite noisy, however it was clean and warm.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      Excellent value for money. Lovely decor and patio areas. Good location for town centre and beach. Plentiful parking. Room size variable but none smaller than a standard double. Good breakfast choice. Best of the hotels in this price range

      Not enough serving staff at breakfast

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      Frendliness, ease and comfort, staff not overpowering.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      The hotel was clean and friendly with an excellent breakfast. The location was very central only a 10 minute from the seafront and importantly off road parking was available at no extra cost

      Our only gripe was the size of our bedroom and lack of somewhere to put your clothes other than stuff you would normally hang in the wardrobe needs some sort of shelf/drawer facility, shelves could have been fitted in the enormous wardrobe
