Score from 165 reviews Very good
Great location with helpful and friendly staff. Although I had booked a single room I was, in fact, given a double room with a large en suite bathroom. The room was comfortable and warm. The only meal I had in the hotel was breakfast which was very good. All in all it represented terrific value for money and I would have no hesitation in staying there again.
My only small complaint was in the morning when I went to check out. There was no member of staff on the reception desk and despite making loud noises (I couldn't see a bell) I had to leave after about 10 minutes. As I not had any extras and the hotel held my card details this was no problem but it might have been if I had had any query on my bill.
The staff were helpful n friendly, not really much entertainment unless ur over 50. Room was comfortable n had good facilities,,, breakfast was Ok but u weren't told wot options there were! In good location n wud Def stay there again. X
We weren't told wot choices were available 4 breakfast! The entertainment was dancing for over 50s, not really much to complain about! X
The front desk staff and their willingness to assist with anything. The high standards of housekeeping. The quality of the food. The comfortable standard of the rooms. The excellent sea view.
A little old fashioned but then again, the outstanding service outshone the furnishings.
Location was very good
Bedroom looked out over a pedestrian walk through. was quite noisy on the fri and sat nights
the room was ok, tea making and television. Good access to the amenities, local shops ect. front was very close. (just over the road) breakfast was served quickly and was hot :) , the staff were courteous and polite.
The room was very hot even with the window open ALL night, Every floor seemed to slope a different way, The shower was incredibley small , ie you couldnt get in and pick anything off of the shower tray. It was that tight for space if you were in with the door shut. There is very little car parking there so in peak season I think soix spaces would get filled up very quickly for a hotel with 100+ rooms. The bed wasnt the comfiest although I have slept on much worse, the biggest problem was the wheels on the base. You tended to move down the room when leaning against the headboard. I think I can sum it up with " you get what you pay for", probably a three start price for a two start hotel. Think fawlty towers with the decor, quite dated, although not scruffy.
The location Staff on reception Size of the room Food at breakfast (excepting the fruit)
The hotel looked shabby and dated, throughout the halls and carpets, and furniture in the public areas through to the bed rooms. A very 1950's feel, I'm unsure if that is deliberate or not, the bathroom within the room was more up to date, looking like it had met the 80/90's. The bathroom had a tub with shower, unfortunately there was no glass panel or shower curtain meaning a bath was the only option (was a nice bath and filled with hot water quickly though). The breakfast was between 8-9am only which seemed strict and on entering the dining room I was acknowledged by a member of staff and went to sit down, but was told off for it was not being my seat (On my way out I looked for a sign saying wait to be seated but no such notice existed). The breakfast service was virtually empty but had to wait around while the waiter tried to find my allocated seat, which was facing a fire exit, a wall on my left and a pillar directly to my right, feeling rather unnecessarily enclosed and their was plenty of room at other better tables (95% of the place was empty as it is October and out of season). The whole experience continued the 1950's feel, and very rigid with customer service being below prescribed (and bizarre) process. Mobile phone signal in the area is poor but the hotel was a black spot, seemingly 25 meters around the building before being able to pick up a signal. This is likely not their fault (except if they've used led paint ...) but wifi was only available on the ground floor and not in individual rooms, which in this day and age is unacceptable. The hotel has a great location, large airy rooms, it feels like a huge amount of wasted potential and just run down and a bit shabby in both appearance and overall service excepting the very friendly and helpful reception staff.
Very dated holes in the hall walls, one old blanket on the bed
Porridge as a cereal choice for breakfast, excellent
choice in cooked breakfast was a little off the wall, accordingly I never had one
staff were very polite and helpful Food was excellent with a very good variety of choices. the dining room and lounge were decorated well and clean. our bathroom very new and excellent
The hallways and corridors needed some attention -ie painting. our room needed cosmetic tidying and a new carpet
Our sea view was great, staff were friendly and helpful as always.
Bit cold in lounge in the evening
Good location for what we required.
The only pillows were feathers. My husband is highly allergic to feathers
Receptionists pm & am very pleasant Breakfast very good.
No Parking facility Small room Bed uncomfortable Noisy. Room above kitchen. Put in annexe for breakfast 4tables only. Only couple there & then moved because we were at wrong table! Waitress did not understand when we asked for milk & butter. Managed with sign language.

Friendly staff, clean, good food.
Very noisy at night, broken sleep
reserved parking prior to stay.but could not park, had to pay to park in public car park as the car park was full of people not staying at hotel.told staff on front desk but nothing was done about it, just could not be bothered. staff were told i needed parking as wife had a bad back and could not walk far.
we found the hotel to be in a good location for all the shops , pubs , restaurants and harbour. all the staff are friendly and helpful on the Saturday night we had a meal in the restaurant which was very nice and good value. we would recommend the hotel for couples , families , or single travellers.
Staff were very helpful in allowing me to use their computer for banking. Plus, when I misunderstood the dining cost arrangement, the Manager sorted it in my favour. Big Plus.
Internet was only available on the ground floor..
