The outside of the building is lovely and there is plenty of parking but for some reason the hotel charges £2 per night! The reception and entrance area is smart and looks fairly up to date and check in was quick and easy but although I'd been told I would have a room update through my GCCI I was given...

This is an amazing hotel. Really friendly and very professional staff, impeccably clean and good value for money. Because of a delayed property purchase, I have been staying here for several weeks and it's become more of a "home from home" for me! I can't recommend the hotel highly enough. Don't forget to have the fantastic breakfast and the bar...

Excellent hotel for rest & relaxation. Great staff, good rooms, great breakfast. Not to far from the shops, restaurants, bars, nightlife &, of course, the beach. Excellent views from the East Overcliff road across the English channel & the bay.

Had a lovely break here but the first room we had a nightmare with plumbing, i.e. shower and taps. We asked to be moved to another room and without hesitation even though we had used the first room was moved to a much nicer room. Impressive.

Excellent location. Very clean and comfortably furnished. Nice pool and garden. Good food. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff. Could be improved by false ceilings, incorporating sound insulation, firmer mattresses and a blackout blind in the bathroom. Otherwise, highly recommended. Also if subtitles were available on the TV, it wouldn't need to be very loud. Personally we could do without piped...
