We stayed the night along with 3 other couples, night away to watch the rugby. The result was most definitely disappointing, but even this didn’t compare to how disappointed we were with the hotel!!!!! (As a Welsh woman that is a Big statement to make at this time). We arrived to a mediocre welcome, where they requested full payment before...

Awesome view but that's as far as it goes. If you are thinking of staying here, I would recommend staying in the family rooms as you can rob the blankets off the spare beds so you don't die of hyperthermia. Freezing.com. Not a great start when the mirror fell off the wall as we walked into the bathroom. I guess...

We parked at the train station 1 pound for the night it's about 400 m from the hotel. It's very centrally located to all pubs clubs and restaurants and all the different shops. The hotel itself needs to...

Well as you will see from just about every review this hotel is in need of serious investment. Staff also are pretty ambivalent, possibly understaffed or just jaded from fending off complaints and repair requests? We had a wonderful seaview room and everything worked fine for a fairly budget room (£95 b&b). Carpets very threadbare in places and there is...

The hotel is tired and the staff seemed uninformed or uncaring. The room was fine. No hairdryer although advertised. The view and location are stunning. Wifi works only in the bar/lounge area. Our room leaked in the rain. Power went off for quite some time. The lift was out of order necessitating climbing several levels of stairs. Breakfast was below...

The twins room was spacious , very nice Sea view, but the hotel needs updating big time, shower doesn't work, Loo sit needs fixing, breakfast was very small choice. Wifi is free but hopeless , doesn't work at all in your room,

My husband and i didn,t read any reviews before our 1 night stay. The location of the hotel is fantastic we stayed in room 102 directly over the front entrance with a huge bay window so you have a beautiful panoramic view across the bay and harbour. The owners here could potentially have a gold mine! however the curtains were...
