Room was adequate although would have liked a bed side cupboard between the beds. Only turn room light on/off by the bed, not by the door. Food good but drinks expensive. Suggest having a drink promotion.

Don't expect a gloss and glamour hotel. This is a busy,... More

“Room 303. Please see above comments. We believe that sea view rooms are available first to early and full price paying guests which is only right.Someone has to be at the back! Ground floor and easy access rooms are available. Just ask when booking.”
