Had breakfast here with my wife the other day as we always go somewhere different each week. The breakfast was very good and cooked well with plenty of variety, but to charge £5 for a pot of tea was too much, this sort of thing should be included with the breakfast, especially somewhere like this. Of all the places we...

Once again we had Christmas Day dinner at the Pier Hotel ( 9 Adults and 4 Children). The food and service we received was 5 Star, not easy i guess dealing with a full house. Lovely to see Rodney being hands on, Margaret for her usual professional manner, and all the lovely waitresses, and not forgetting the chef(s). Congratulations to...

Normally a really nice place to eat but, at a recent visit, our meal was rather disappointing and definitely not up to the restaurant's usual standard. The meat we had was fatty and chewy and didn't taste too good. We did complain and were given a complimentary coffee which was nice but didn't compensate for the poor standard of the...

The hotel is in the ideal spot. I parked right opposite for free for the weekend and did not have to drive for 2 days. The breakfast was fantastic and was served in the cellar dining room which was clean, bright and well staffed. Good clean room with all amenities.

Room was clean and warm with everything we needed. Breakfast was quick, piping hot and delicious so may even come back for this alone. Would highly recommend if in the...
