Upon arrival we were met by an abrupt and brusque lady who advised the breakfast was priced at £8.50. I said that I had it in writing that it was A mistake. She also advised that the restaurant...

We recently stayed at the hotel and the staff were very friendly and helpful, we stayed in the Lipton room which was a good sized room with a giant bed and nicely decorated. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others, much more comfortable than other hotels in the area.

We had a standard room at the rear of the hotel, smallish but good enough bed for a short stay. The view to the bay has been replaced by new housing but still rear of hotel has pleasant far view. There are larger bedrooms and suites so maybe better to choose one of those if in for more than 1... More
