Only here for one night unfortunately, would have loved to stay longer after being here. The rooms we had were sea facing and the view was gorgeous. Fantastic breakfast, cold and hot. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Well overpriced. We were charged £80 per night which appears to be more than they normally charge. Maybe cashing in on a busy weekend. The room was tiny with a view of some roofs. Only a small handheld mirror in the room. Welcome pack was tea and coffee only. Advertises ironing

Being locals, my son and I have dinner here fairly regularly. This evening the standard of food was great, as it usually is, and the staff were friendly, as they usually are. Good to see the toilets have been refurbished in keeping with the general look and feel of the place.

"Not above the bar"
"Apparently there are some rooms with a beach view."
"Don't stay there - you will be cold!"
"Hotel is not beach facing, only some of the rooms have a seaview - you need to ask. Corridor end rooms are quietest."
