Great location with access to all local area and some good bars and restaurants. Room ok, clean but a bit shabby. Need to replace or repair worn chairs, they look a disgrace. Need some attention to detail ie vanity light not working in bathroom. Staff need some comprehensive customer service training. Real inconsistencies in service delivery, which is a bit... More

Stayed here with colleagues whilst working away. Room120 must be a contractors room with a double and bunk beds. Clean but very very tired. No cold water tap working. No toilet working. No temp adjustment on the shower. Room120 would have been fine about 20 years ago. Not cheap either. To be fair the food presentation and menu were good.... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I've checked the cold tap and it seems to be working fine but I have used a lubricant as it was slightly tight. The shower thermostatic valve is also working fine. To use it, it has to be turned all the way around. We have taken on board your comments... More

We happened to see a sign on the seafront advertising the Afternoon Tea- 2 for £16. As it was my birthday we decided to give it a go, so glad we did. No-one in the place so we were seated quickly. Lovely china crockery, huge pot of tea each, we asked for vegetarian sandwich selection which seemed to flummox them... More

Clean and tidy enough, but some parts a little dated, especially some of the restaurant chairs, which are a little threadbare. Other than that, the staff are friendly, ploite and helpful, Food is good. Would stay again

We decided on a change from the normal visit to a well known fish restaurant. The restaurant was clean, the staff pleasant. We went for the two for one on the menu, fillet steak. Nicely presented first cut or two was good, until we got two thirds into the steak. Too many sinews for my liking and I don't like... More

pros. Good food. Good service. Good value. Cons. Some loud Yorkshire residents drinking cans of lager in reception when we arrived. Restaurant almost empty when we arrived, yet we were seated in a table right at the back next to the kitchen door. Unable to attract the attention of any staff to order desserts, gave up in the end and... More
