We found the hotel very welcoming, clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful. Our room had a beautiful view over the beach and sea and hotel was centrally based. The only fault we found was that the curtains in the room were too small for the windows and it would have been better if nets were up the... More

Hi thanks for the review. I'll check in to the curtains for you. We didn't want nets to spoil the great views over the sea or the railwail. Cheers Dave More

A lovely, peaceful hotel to stay in. Always clean and tidy, it's my 4th stay there! Also, as it's a training hotel you can really help people prepare for a career in hotel services by staying there. They are keen, polite, keen, enthusiastic and helpful. Already re-booked!!!

Thank you for such an in depth review. I have looked into the breakfast issue as we all staff use a breakfast sheet to record guests orders so these mistakes are not made. It would appear one of our staff decided not to use the sheets so this may have caused the issue. I have reminded all staff to use... More

I was a bit dubious when I found out this hotel was run by the YMCA for training youngsters. Couldn't have been more wrong as they have done an excellent job with what is obviously a very old hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were large, comfortable and very clean. Keep up the good work!
