Quite disapponting. Room was very basic, no hair dryer and very small TV. The breakfast wasnt worth getting up for...

I don't even know where to begin with this hell hole. I was looking to book a hotel that I knew I could check in late due to me being in the area on business. I booked because I saw on the website that the reception was 24 hours and I told the hotel I would be arriving at approximately...

What a gem of a hotel. The staff couldn't be more helpfull and I couldn't believe what you get for the price. Indoor and outdoor swimming pool, sauna. Snooker, Pool and a bowling Ally. All this more than makes up for the small, albeit comfortable room. Will definitely be back in.

This has the feel of a very grand hotel on first entry, just a shame the rooms let it down, very tired although clean. There are stunning views from the bar/ restaurant of the gannel estuary and farm land. The food was very good, and the staff were excellent in every way, would of been nice had the bar stocked...
