Had a 5 day break here and really enjoyed it. The service in the restaurant was amazingly quick and the food was nice. Not many spaces on the car park but we arrived early and didn't use the car. The room was plenty big enough and was cleaned every day. Nice walk down to the beach although there are a...

This hotel ticked all the boxes. The food was very tasty and several choices. The entertainment was excellent and the guests were very friendly.This was our third visit and we will certainly be going again so would recommend to other people comtemplating booking. Good value for money.

Stayed here on a coach holiday, hotel does need some refurbishment in some rooms but that doesn't take anything away from cosy feel, rooms are large, clean and beds are very comfortable, the room serves it's purpose well. The rest of the hotel is lovely and easy to navigate, lots of nice seating areas to while away and afternoon. The...

A very good hotel with good facilities. A few minor additions such as hooks to hang up wet towels in the bathroom, a common omission in lots of hotels. The Broadband WI- FI has very limited range, only seems to work when in close proximity to the reception area.

We found all the staff be friendly and helpful. As with other Daish's hotels where we have stayed (in Weymouth and Torquay) there was room for parking off road in a (rather packed) car park and a request to hand the car keys in at reception if blocking in another driver. The hotel is not new so the lift, though...

On entering we saw the cupboards were broken, wrote my name in the dust on the phone, told management replaced cupboard which also had a broken handle, this is the worst room I have stayed in not looking forward to the rest.

“We stayed in room 222. This is not a room with a view. However, it was a long way from the nightly entertainment and therefore quiet if retiring early. Although it did not bother us, one of the windows does not quite shut properly and might benefit from the application of some foam weather stripping to prevent cold drafts in the winter.”
