Have today returned from a 2 night break (our first visit) at The View. Check-in was quick and easy, reception staff very friendly. We had a lovely, comfortable room with a sea view. We ate in the restaurant both evenings and had the buffet which was good value at £18 for 3 courses and a good choice of food. Breakfast...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, hotel is situated well for all amenities, hotel and staff were above our expectations. Room was immaculate and very clean, although the only downside for me was that we had a view of the back of the hotel and not being one to make a fuss didn't ask if there was another room available with a...

Have stayed at this hotel on many occasions over the years. Always meets expectations. Have used other hotels when The View has had no availability, but none that we have used come close to the standards of The View.

We have been coming here since the late seventies when it was the T and G Centre and although the prices are now so much more expensive, which is obvious bearing in mind inflation over the past 40 plus years, the upgrades made throughout the Hotel have improved it no end. The whole Hotel has been upgraded and really is...

This was the second stay at this hotel and on this occasion we extended our stay by an extra night. Clean, very tidy and excellent hotel. All the staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Any issues resolved immediately, staff went above and beyond making the overall stay a really pleasant one. As a disabled customer, the room...

Having upgraded to the sea view this was a very good choice as everything was brilliant, the view, cleanliness, presentation, all was great. The greating was welcoming, once inside. The front area all being glass made the entrance exit difficult to find. That was really the only problem as everything else was like clockwok.

Hotel was clean and comfortable with friendly reception staff. The restaurant was not good at all. Raw sausages, rude staff with no apology and any extra food you would like to order was very delayed or didn't come at all.

I've been coming to the View for over a decade and am overall pleased with the service they provide and the value for money. However, I have seen a decline in service over the years e.g. at breakfast, instead of being brought tea & toast to the table, we have to queue to put the bread through a painfully slow...
