After parking our car in the city centre, we walked down to the Horizon hotel and the desk clerk, Tracey, really was helpful in organising a great room. Nice and tidy with a great bar and restaurant overlooking the seafront. We enjoyed it immensely, well worth the walk.

This hotel is quite nice and right on the beach......very pretty location and nice decor. It is an interesting hotel as it has several different levels....kind of an upstairs downstairs affair. It does have a lift, we'll worth a ride. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Staff were friendly and a very nice breakfast was provided.

The staff were very exceptionally friendly and helpful, the breakfast was very good, the problem lied in the rooms. By the photographs we were expecting a very modern hotel and modern rooms in the hotel, what we found was the hotel building on the photographs was only the reception, bar and dining area and upstairs was a function room used...

We stayed Fri-Sat 4-5/09/15 and had a lovely stay. Staff were welcoming and very accommodating (especially Tracey). Nothing was a bother. The room was spacious and very well laid out. The bed was comfortable and we had one of the best sleeps in a hotel ever! The en-suite shower room was also roomy and well laid out. Plenty of hot...

We were delighted with the quality of food and the professional attention from the staff. The hotel is perfectly situated on the esplanade and ideal for a walk in the morning and evening. The food was excellent and well presented. I would have been happy with giving a 4 star rating except that the beds were hard and uncomfortable (and...

Stayed here for a overnight trip with children. We had a lovely big family room with lovely view to the sea. Check-in was very efficient, few steps up and down to get to our room but a lovely surprise after going through dark corridors to open the door into a lovely bright room, massive double bed and 2 good size...

We booked this through tourist information, to be fair we were advised that it may be a attic room - so it was! Although very clean it was made up as a family room, this was done by fitting in a 'put you up' bed by moving the double and other single only problem was they had headboards screwed to...

Having being transferred from another Hotel in the area due to overbooking, we were pleasantly supprised by the Horizon Hotel. Only problem we had was the room, we were in room 4 which unfortunately only had a view of a brick wall through a (bathroom style) window, no other rooms available. Apart from that the Hotel was exceptional, clean, tidy,...

Great beach setting but pity it was windy, raining and cold. Room was great and well priced and had excellent view from level one. I would say that the view from ground level is ok though. Nice clean dinning room, lounge and bar facilities. Dinner in the restaurant was great, excellent food. Breakfast was ok, eggs are not free range...
