Hotel nice enough (cannot be blamed for the weather) and indoor pool was good, but not much other than beach in walking distance and parking is absolutely terrible - either pay £10 a day or pot luck about 8 spaces for hotel.

Just come back from a 2 night stay here. Hotel was clean, friendly staff and perfect location, looking over Fistral Beach. The pool/jacuzzi area open till late which was great cause no kids splashing around after 8pm. Only problem was the noise from upstairs, not the hotels fault just noisey people! Would stay again.

We stayed here for a weekend break from just up the coast, we couldn't have asked for much better. Good sized clean room, decent menu and good food from the menu. The cocktails were a bonus! The pool was also surprisingly warm. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend

The pool, jacuzzi and sauna are lovely as well as clean. The bar and restaurant...

We stayed in a room 303 which is dog friendly, the room was clean and backed on to a play area which was great for the kids and the dog. The hotel advertised it self as dog friendly, however what they meant was the dog can stay in the room and no where else inside the hotel which was annoying....

I'll start with the good: the restaurant staff are lovely, very friendly and keen to help. The view from the (tiny) room is great (sea view room). And the birthday card they put in the room for my wife was a nice touch. Now the not so great: rooms themselves are in bad need of update. The floor is dirty,...
