Stayed at the horizon for 2 nights in Nov '15. Staff are very pleasant & attentive. Excellent breakfast served piping hot. No problem asking for tea/coffee refills & we were offered more toast although we had plenty. We ate in dining room on the second night & were pleasantly surprised with the 2 course & cocktail deal. Food was superb,...

Both rooms were well furnished, spotless and well presented, but bedroom deco a...

Booked well in advance but ended up in the attic. Awful bed which did not help getting a nights sleep but soon woke up when the shower either ran cold or scolding hot (dangerous) or no water at all depending on who was using what below in the proper room's. So not a good start to the morning. My partner...

We got married in June 2015 at the Horizon Hotel and the day was all we could have wished for and much much more. From the day we booked the date until the last guest had left the reception there was nothing we would have said could have went better. Craig and Lorraine were fabulous wedding planners and took the...

Hotel is a short walk away from the sea front and the restaurant has lovely views as do some of the rooms. This is not and does not claim to be a five star hotel but it is very good value for money and we had a very comfortable stay there. In fact we enjoyed it so much we stayed...
