2nd visit to hotel literally one year apart. First with a girlfriend and back this time with my Mum. Friendly, clean, great staff very helpful, lovely setting, good food, great location. If I worked hard to find a negative, it would be at dinner the courses come quickly and a little more time to digest before dessert would be good....

Very comfortable hotel with a good varied menu for evening meals. The staff are very helpful and work hard to make sure that you have an enjoyable stay. I was concerned about the car parking but my fears were groundless, as the staff managed the parking very well. Well worth a visit to this hotel with an excellent location.

Floor 3 has small non attractive sea view rooms with actual view distorted by mass of seagull poo over the windows and a food cooking smell filtered into the rooms. The food quality was good but the evening was spoiled by...

I have been visiting this hotel for over 30 years. And there is nothing to fault. It is just brilliant. Good food, excellent staff who cannot do enough and old fashioned charm. A beautiful old hotel on the front with fantastic views. My second home.

We went for a one night break including afternoon tea, dinner, spa and breakfast. The hotel was slightly like stepping back in time to the 80's, but in a really good way. The food was slightly old fashioned but delicious. Our room overlooked the sea and was lovely a clean. Due to age of the building the floor was a...

We arrived early so we could spend the morning going around town and afternoon in pool. We were made to feel unwelcome on arrival even though we asked a young man who was parking cars if we could park. Reception was annoyed by this. Then to get told the pool is not part of the hotel! Pool is next door...
