Met with a smile on arrival, even though we were early. Easy to find, just a stones throw from the shore, half way between Pleasure beach and tower. Hotel clean and tidy, family welcoming and friendly, breakfast was excellent and Barry's Basement Bar is nice relaxing area to relax after a day out. Secure parking is free. Great stay, thanks.

Stayed here for three nights. The location is very central to everything, just off the main promenade in a quite location. The hotel is very family friendly and the hosts Barry and Andrea are very helpful, giving advice on where to eat, visit etc. There is a small bar in the basement that opens in the evening which has activities...

Stayed here for Easter weekend and loved every minute of it. Barry and Andrea are so friendly and make it feel like a home from home. They have a great knowledge of the area and gave lots of recommendations for things to do, best ways to get there etc. Will definitely be back again!

Very friendly proprietors where nothing was too much trouble. For example we booked through booking.com and in the "special request" box on the website, I stated that one of my daughters had a gluten intolerance and could we request gluten free bread at breakfast. Now these kind of requests can get a mixed response but we arrived to find we'd...

Very welcoming family who own the hotel, over the years we have visited this hotel we have noticed a big change in decor & the outside of the building. Having stayed in different rooms over the years they all have a warm homely feel & the Family rooms are very spacious. Im very impressed with the security of the hotel...
