The hotel is well placed, the rooms are clean (when you arrive), it has a decent priced bar. That's about it for positives. The negatives. In our room the shower was in the room, literally in the room, as was the wash basin. There isn't an extractor fan either. Thankfully at least the toilet had a door. The room wasn't...

Very good for price, comfortable light room. Staff very nice. Had a lovely full english breakfast. The cleaning staff did a good job and made sure we had ample supplies of tea coffee etc. View was pleasant and hotel is well located, shops and beach in walking distance.

This hotel was very poor, if you see a lot of the reviews here are from people with little or no feedback which I find suspicious as I will attach photo's and you can see for yourself, also check my feedback which is substantial. We were at first put in to a "double room" which was so small we had...

This was a budget trip as we were house hunting. We were welcomed by friendly efficient reception staff and directed to a comfortable big enough clean room with lovely comfortable twin beds (which we pushed together). The bathroom was a little tired but clean which was acceptable at the price we paid for the room- £48/night. We opted for a...

Stayed 10 nights, very comfortable and hospitable. Clean and comfortable rooms with friendly staff. Didn't eat here as being regular visitors we like to sample the local cafes for breakfast. However on our first stay we took breakfast and found it ample and tasty. It's ideally located for exploring the South Cliff, being close to the Esplanade and Spa bridge,...
