            Pleasant, polite and helpful staff. Good minimum choice for a tasty, filling breakfast. Lovely sea views. Close to local facilities.

            The decor was clean but dated and shabby in parts. Would benefit from some new carpets in public areas.

            Friendly & Helpful Staff, excellent breakfast, great value.

            Staff were fantastic Friendly & pleasant owner was very helpful and accommodating. You might need to ask for some services but they would try and help where they could.

            The single room was very small But it was clean and Functional and fine for one night

            Freindleness of staff and cleaniness of hotel. We had a fantastic room with sea view.

            The rooms are large and comfy but the decor is a bit dated. Could do with a bit of a face lift, but then again it kind of adds to the feel of the hotel.

            Location

            We have stayed here 4 times now, but have always been happy until now, we were only given the choice of fish A.nd chips £10 so not good value and a low standard ' before 7pm due to a coach party being present, we were told nothing else available! We wanted a choice from the light menu. Very dissapointed. Also an error with our bill and felt we were criminals with our car blocked in to stop us leaving by the maintenance man. Unusual way to settle up. We both felt that these things would stop us booking again.

            The staff were very friendly and helpful good breakfast

            Stayed in the 'Honeymoon' room, which was comfortable and nicely furnished. It had a large balcony overlooking the sea. The manager (proprietor?) was very 'hands on' and worked hard to keep up standards. Breakfasts were excellent with a good spread (including very nice fried bread.) Evening meal menu was extensive and a good carvery.

            Friendly and helpful staff. Nice breakfast.

            Bathroom Shower and Toilet too small. Flat screen tv too small and only 4 analogue channels.

            Excellent Location, near to Pier and Shops. Great Sea View. Friendly Staff.

            Whole hotel could do with a refurb. It was Clean, but 'old'. Very small car park, but found space on the side road near-by ok, but this couuld be a problem during week days if busy.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Good location coinsidering that you are just across seafront. Clean and friendly stuff. We had a room with sea view that was really nice. I would go back for another week end

          • Single
            7.0

            The hotel is in a great position, just east of the Pier, so central but quiet at nighttime. However, parking is limited to check with hotel prior to arrival by car. Good value.

          • Family with children
            8.8

            Location of the hotel was perfect for our family, with 2 small children, close enough to beach and attractions to walk and not have to use buggy and far enough away from the bars for it to be quiet, Staff were lovely and very child friendly. The family room was great, with the children having a seperate room, will be booking again.

            The double bed was getting on a bit and could do with updating and we could only get one tv channel in the kids room

          • Single

            The Breakfast was good

            I had to go out for food as no cooking facilities were available, when I got back 10pm the bar was closed

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Staff were warm and welcoming and could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was excellent. I was concerned when I saw the cooked breakfast was buffet style after nasty experiences elsewhere but it tasted as good as any fresh prepared. The general feel from all staff was really friendly.

            I found my mattress really uncomfortable. I thought this might just be me as I have severe arthritis but my daughter said hers was the same. Luckily it was very warm so I slept on the quilt! I had no problems with the cleanliness of my room but my daughter said there was cigarette ash on her windowsill. The hotel cannot have known a previous occupier was breaking the law but the cleaning staff should have spotted this and cleaned it up. Also the "sliding door" to the en-suite in her room had no runners top or bottom and had to just be dragged - this was dangerous too for the children it being a family room.
