  • Family with children

    Comfortable rooms, lots of hot water and tea/coffee making facilities. Very close to beach and city centre would happily book again a very enjoyable stay.

    only fault with this hotel was squeaky floorboards

    Location.

    They give me under ground room which was cold and not ventilated well despite that I told them that I am not happy with the room .

  • Couple

    nice, comfortable, reasonably priced hotel

    no everything was good.. did find the 3rd floor very hot but not really a problem

  • Older travelers
    4.2

    Location was the only good thing

    The bed was very uncomfortable and hard (not firm). When you had a shower it was either boiling or freezing, no good for children to use. We did'nt use the dinning room for dinner so cant comment on that.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The facilities and location were good a very comfortably furnished hotel.

    The food was not as good as other less expensive hotels I have stayed at. Something which you probably cannot control was the rudeness and language of some of your guests, especially when you have young teeanagers with you.

  • Couple
    9.6

    We were upgraded to an executive room which was lovely. The staff were friendly.

    The rooms were very hot and uncomfortable to sleep in at night.

  • Older travelers

  • Group of friends

    Thier staf is helpful.

    Thier hotel is not modern and they disapionted me on the new year eve was bording and not nice at all.. All the resedints were old people!!!!!!

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff cheery helpful and polite. It was perfect for the beach and town access. Lovely tv in the room with a good range of channels.

    The pool/leisure facility was a lot smaller than anticipated and not as appealing as in the pictures. My bed was too soft for me personally but might be okay for others.

  • Couple
    7.4

    clean room nice walk to the beach front

    the room was very hot could of done with air conditioning

  • Couple
    9.6

    The staff were very friendly and always happy to help. Bar and dining areas looked recently refurbished and were nice places to have a relaxing drink. Room had everything required and was very clean and tidy. All in all a very good experience and 2 mins walk from the beach! Perfect!

  • Couple
    9.2

    we needed to get in to our room earlier then check in due to a wedding we was attending that day and the staff where so helpful that we was able to get in one hour before check in so we could freshen up. I would defo stay there again.

  • Couple
    5.4

    Location - 5 minutes to the beach coastal path and 10 minutes scenic walk to the town Cleaning staff very friendly, shame the Reception staff didn't all have the same attitude. We paid for the refurbished style rooms, and the bed was very comfy

    We stayed on the 1st floor, took the lift when we had our suitcases, however had to navigate a rather topsy turvy design with lots of steps up and down, a seemingly never ending system of corridors to get to our room. The most interesting incident during our stay was on the first night, we settled down for the night, I felt something in the bed, and we found it to be a pair of mens boxers - not my boyfriends! Unfortunately we couldn't really report this to the hotel as my boyfriend threw them out the window before I had a chance to stop him! Either the bed had not been changed, or the underwear had been washed in the quilt cover...either way, a bit of care would have meant this didn't happen. Room with a view? Ours was a wall of the hotel next door, and the kitchen down below meant we could hear the hotel staff clattering away from the early hours. Rooms are so warm, we read about this and thought it must just be the weather, but a ceiling fan, desk fan, or air conditioning would be a huge bonus to this hotel. Reception staff - crack a smile, it really wouldn't hurt you! Also, like getting blood out of a stone trying to get the code to use the swimming pool, it is not offered willingly! Not for young couples!!!!!!!!!!!! We are in our twenties, and everyone else staying at the hotel seemed a good forty years older. Not that we have a problem with anyones age, just it would have been nice to see this on the reviews before travelling and I don't recall seeing it. The real problem with this was that large groups from coach tours would gather in the stairs, in the reception area queueing for the restaurant to open, and outside the hotel smoking. We were constantly saying 'excuse me please' and being ignored, not the hotels fault at all, but just something that we were not expecting.

  • Couple
    7.8

    There was enough car parking spaces to accomodate us

    Small ensuite bathroom

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Large, well furnished room, comfortable beds, en-suite bathroom with plenty of hot water and excellent shower.

    Door sticks, some mould in bathroom, noisy firedoor at night.
