We stayed here for one night in April whilst travelling up the coast. We had a sea view room on the second floor. Was not disappointed, view was excellent. We did not book to eat at the hotel but would do if stayed again as town seemed to lack places to eat. Breakfast was excellent and could not be faulted...

We ate breakfast which was lively with a big choice of hot or cold food. The evening meal which we chose to have as we didn't want to brave...

Well we asked for a sea view and that's what we got... lovely big room, big kingsize bed and a fantastic big bay window to sit in while enjoying a beer - get onto the beer in a minute! Rooms and hotel in general very clean, fresh smelling, light and airy. En-suite was nice with good sized walk in shower...

Excellent hotel. Stayed here one night as it was the same price as the purple chain, but breakfast was included here. So glad we did. Large clean rooms, and unlike the purple chain, they have made the most of the seas view, having chairs in the bay window. I could sit there for hours! Note-there's no double glazing here, so...

Good hotel for a reasonable price. This is my second visit, having stayed in January as well so my comments reflect this. Seafront rooms have big bay windows with a good view. Rooms very clean and made up efficiently. Breakfast has good selection, hot food is cooked to order and service is efficient. Breakfast tables are allocated to rooms which...

Had a lovely stay, fab view, breakfast was incredible and the lady serving us was so nice! The only reason it has 4 not 5 is because the shower was cold in the mornings. Overall a clean, friendly, quiet hotel 🌞

We almost stayed at the Premier Inn and we're very glad we didn't and came here instead. We had a sea view room and spent 4hrs just sat in the window chairs drinking wine, watching the world go by and the waves crashing on the beach. Very relaxing. The restaurant was closed for a private function which was a shame...

My partner and I stayed at the Richmond for two nights from the 10th March, 2017. We had a wonderfully warm greeting from Awen on reception, who provided us with much information about the hotel. The room was on the top floor which overlooked the beach, a spectacular view, albeit wet and grey outside. The following morning we had a...
