My wife and I booked a 1 night stay to watch beach competition. The building is old and the carpets are a little frayed but some would say it gives the place character. Our room was large, clean and the linen was decent quality (I like nice sheets to sleep in). The bathroom had been recently refurbished I think and...

After a busy few months, me and the other half decided to take a well earned break. We wanted to do absolutely nothing. Royal Beacon Hotel seemed to be the one we were looking for, so we decided to go for the Double Room. The Price of £105 per night including breakfast seemed reasonable too. We arrived on the Tuesday...

Dear Vata68 Your report is quite extensive and provides some valuable feedback for both ourselves and for guests reviewing our hotel, via this popular site.
