Nice looking bar, staff at the restaurant were very professional, it's a shame the meals were not the same. My husband had,what I would call a dried up pork chop which had been overlooked and warmed up along with potatoe wedges. I had gammon which was very dry. We suffered the next two days with indegeston.

We recently stayed at this hotel for a three night break. It was a cheap deal and we were pleased to have secured what we thought was a good deal when we booked.

The restaurant, reception and toilets were not very well heated. The main (automatic) doors to the hotel were broken and had to be prised open. We ate dinner in the hotel and...

Excellent location. Hotel could do with a little updating but it was a great stay - would visit again. Staff were friendly, room was clean. Did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the standard of food.

I bought a deal on Groupon and it turned out to be fantastic! I had the option to upgrade to a Premiun room for just £20 per night and it was definitely worth...

I was looking for a hotel that was doggie friendly and this certainly fits the bill. Just a short walk to a good sized clifftop park and from there easy access down over to the beach. For those who are looking for a similar break, the park and access to the beach is down the lane right opposite the hotel...

Stayed here for two nights for a weekend of Motown, northern soul and disco music. With 200 guests all attending the same venue the hotel coped well. Our room was ready early, clean and warm. Dinner was served at two seatings. It was served with the minimum of fuss and the staff were very attentive. Both dinner and breakfasts tasted...
