Score from 588 reviews Good 7.5/10
Close enough to walk to everything but far enough out to get some peace and quiet.
Water pressure was poor in the shower.
The staff here are excellent, incredibly helpful and friendly.
It's a very old hotel, a child walking down the hallway sounds like a stampede because the flooring is very loose.
Views from some areas
Poor furnishings Poor finish eg carpets Breakfast merely OK Small room Cost for B and B way too high for the standards as above
Food, staff, position all very good, nice clean room.
Pool not heated.
Breakfast. Not too close to main strip.
Shower was like a dripping tap. Hot water kept running warm to boiling and did it when 8 year old daughter in shower. No wi-fi, whereas said there was. Bedroom window didn't shut, and wasn't the warmest August night. Bright building lights outside window, difficult to sleep. Mattress really bumpy.
Everything out dated hotel shocking wifI access clearly not been touched since the 1970s
Location was great lovely walk into town .fantastic views from our balcony which was lovely hot spot So good sunbathing .Good full English breakfast lovely .staff very nice .pool & area lovely .very clean room & bathroom each day
Very small bathroom .balcony needed painting but they was working on it so smell of paint thou has to be done sometime
No restaurant tv to small broken toilet seat dripping radiator. Bed too uncomfortable. No black out curtains pillows uncomfortable not enough sockets. Lighting was poor due to light saving bulbs floors to creaky and why do maintenance ie painting in August ?
Nice location with a wonderful view over the ocean. Very nice to stay for holyday. Smart small pool in front of the hotel. Very close to the sea. Would come again!
I don't like the plastic chairs at the breakfirstroom.
Nice quiet location Nice room Friendly staff Good breakfast
Staff were excellent.
Run down. Very hard beds. Over-priced.
Fantastic sea view - walk able to both piers. food was lovely and staff friendly
WiFi was very poor in the rooms - better in the lounge
Customer Service was outstanding, so were the facilities such as wifi, the bar and the check in process was straight forward.
The walls were too thin, at night you can hear people walking on the above floor and a baby crying which was loud enough to wake me up, But apart from that all else was good.
The en suite dated, shower wasn't very good. Biscuits should be on tray in room. Heated pool. More choice at breakfast cereals, eggs done differently like a choice, yogurts muffins etc.
The staff were great. Helpful and really accommodating!
A lovely hotel in a great location. Staff were very nice and helpful.
Wifi should be extended to the top floor
The room The pool The location
The lift The parking lot Lack of a balcony
Friendly helpful staff and great pool. My room was spacious and clean carpets a little tired but over all very good for the money
The pool area and bar food was great, free parking
The rooms are really dated and you can hear the people moving around above you. The bathroom facilities were poor in the room we were in.
Swimming pool bar facilities
Wi fi poor.
LIKED THE ROOM SIZE AND THE VIEW, BEDS WERE QUITE COMFORTABLE. THE BAR/ RESTAURANT SERVICE WAS QUITE GOOD AND STAFF WERE FRIENDLY LIKED THE POOL.
THERE WAS A VERY STRONG UNPLEASANT SMELL AS WE WALKED IN ROOM. IT COULD BE THE CLEANING DETERGENT USED AS ON THE 2ND DAY AFTER ROOM WAS CLEANED WE HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE AS WE WALKED INTO THE ROOM. SOME RECEPTION STAFF DID NOT SEEM FRIENDLY. OR RATHER NEED A SMILE ON THEIR FACES FOR GUESTS TO FEEL WELCOME.
Location overlooking the sea was fabulous. Outdoor pool looked lovely, but wasn't warm enough to try it out.
Tired décor, creaky floorboards.
We stayed at the ocean view, and so far everything was so great,room location , reception , breakfast,
Wifi wasn't that good
Quiet and peaceful.
Would have liked a more extensive menu. Not eating fish it was very restrictive. By end of a week I was 'bored' with the choice.
