Looked a bit dated on the way in. But just goes to show that you should never judge a book and all that! Good meals, well cooked, good value on the Friday offer!! Big place so a table of 7 wasn't a problem!

Good sized room, clean and tidy, turned over very professionally, decent sized bathroom, excellent location, expected ameneties, and friendly staff but slightly expensive food offering. Perhaps on par with upmarket hotels but a budget option would be appreciated.

The room I chose was lovely - with excellent sea views and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food in the restaurant was good. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel.

Very pleasant stay. Couple of things let it down. Bacon was under cooked and cold at breakfast. There was a leak in our bathroom overnight. Room 6. When I mentioned it, I was told they already knew. "People must be using the water wrong" Make of that what you will......fix it, surely. The room has great views by the way....

I will first mention the disappointments: Off season during our November visit therefore their pub was very quiet and we counted on ambiance during the evening...generally the neighbourhood was VERY quiet. the first night I requested beef and ale pie and the beef was so hard I could not put my fork in it nor eat it properly..

From your numerous emails on booking to your payment card being declined (despite you telling us how many thousands of...
