My son did the booking as he was going to drive so that we all went in one car, I am not sure what rating the hotel has but is very good. This was our second visit and I am sure will not be our last. We booked for just bed and breakfast and were well pleased with everything. Our...

This is a lovely hotel which is clean, functional and has very polite & welcoming staff. The location is also good (by the beach/pier, good bus routes etc, also nice for cycling). The problem I had was that on the first night a guest decided to blast his TV volume up from 11pm-1am (waking & keeping me up when I...

Why did you not let us know about the problem, either by coming to Reception or by telephoning us? The problem could then have quickly been solved as we could have quickly identified the noisy guest's room and requested that the TV volume be reduced. To a certain extent we agree that the suggested "noise level" signs in rooms would...

It is on a brilliant strategic location. But the property itself is going to ruins. It has literally cardboard rooms in which you can even hear the other people breathing in their room. Very uncomfortable beds plus you can hear floor creaking noise when anybody walks around. Dirty smelly carpets to compliment with everything. In morning the reception will never...

Firstly, we are not a 4 Star HOTEL. We make it clear that we are a 4 Star GUEST ACCOMMODATION establishment (which sits between HOTEL and GUEST HOUSE) and we choose to be demoted to Guest House in any description. Sandrock S's contribution is more of an "assassination" than a "review" and we leave it to readers to judge for...

The website is awful but if you persevere it is worth it. The check in was very friendly and efficient. We were shown not only to our room but also our table at breakfast, really nice touch. The rooms are a bit dated but very clean with a comfortable bed. Their are tea making facilities in the room. There is...

I read all the reviews in great detail before booking but was still feeling apprehensive about staying. On arrival we were informed of being upgraded f.o.c to a larger double room, shown our table for breakfast and to the pool and then escorted to our ground floor room. The room was perfectly adequate, clean and with a large en-suite with...

Because of the very poor service of another local hotel we stayed here. We were met by Jude who was so friendly and helpful! The room was lovely and the breakfast spot on, even if my eyes were a little bigger than my belly! I'll definitely be back! Thanks!
