Nice room, clean, good bed, good view although limited, good shower, plenty of storage space. Breakfast was just fine and plenty and enjoyed by us both. There was one cup in the room, 2 would be better for a couple. A choice of tea and coffee sachets would have been appreciated.

Ok. So it wasn't the best of hotels but when my 3 yr old and 6 yr old say they loved it then I can only review it as good and probably will visit again. It's not perfection, not even close, but hey for the price and the happiness of my kids I can't grumble....oh and the sea views!! Great...

My wife called sand booked for two nights and the receptionist was very abrupt at first. He kept repeating questions my wife had already answered as if he didn't believe her. He confirmed there was a room available and took or credit card details. When my wide asked about the cancellation policy, he actually said he didn't want to give...

Please go with an open mind. I was in two minds but the hotel did exceed my expectations. The management is in the process of making numerous improvements which will include putting information packs etc in rooms. The Bar area is very pleasant and the beer/lager is considerably cheap. They will also do afternoon/evening meals if you ask. Full English...

The hotel is exceedingly good value for money. I paid just £28 for a room with a stunning, sea view and it included breakfast. Som oef the areas of the hotel have been upgraded recently and consequently the bar area, reception and some of the corridors on the ground floor look pretty impressive. But the rooms are still very "Terry...

I understand that you get what you pay for. Given that we paid £32 for two of us, including breakfast, our expectations were low. We'd read reviews stating it's basic and poorly decorated and thought we could live with that! However, the place was terrible. We had no space in our room, the toilet was in a wardrobe and neither...
