Fabulous location
Amazing seafront location Fabulous seaview room 415 Friendly & excellent service from all the hotel staff Spotlessly clean Took a while to find a carpark space in the medium size hotel car park, because sadly most spaces were being used by beach daytrippers and not hotel residents Room rate was very reasonably priced ( extra £14 car park charge) Highly recommended

Old and smelly
The hotel needs some major renovation works. The room we were allocated was older than my great grandmothers decor, and was not suitable for my pet let alone my family.

4/10 Fair

Disappointing stay
We booked a room with a sea view and had high hopes about the hotel. The room was very tired with even minor defects not being rectified. The room was very hot and we had to keep the window open to get any chance of sleep which meant that loud laundry collection in the early hours and deliveries very early in the morning disturbed us even though we were on the top floor. Service was underwhelming with very little proactive acknowledgment at any stage and not even a glance when we left.

Parking charges
Shocked to find out that I had to pay £28 for parking in the hotel car park. If I booked direct with hotel I would not have been changed. And it was overloaded with some cars double parked
