My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel over Easter weekend as we were attending a wedding nearby. Our initial thoughts of the hotel were that it looked like an 'old people’s home' from the outside, although not the end of the world. We were greeted by a grumpy looking receptionist who checked us in and took payment there and...

Dear Tasha-Leanne I was very sorry to learn of your disappointment regarding your recent stay at the Atlantic Hotel. We take all our guests comments very seriously indeed, and I was most concerned to hear that the room was not to your expectations. I would like to address a couple of items you mentioned.

The bedrooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The bedrooms and the corridors on the ground floor were dark almost impossible to see in the afternoon, bedrooms were not lit adequately. We ate our evening meal in the Italian restaurant as it had received such good reviews but we were very disappointed , as the cost for a 2...

This hotel wasn't really what I expected and whilst I don't want to appear too picky, there were a few things which I wasn't overly impressed with. Firstly, there wasn't a lift and for a modern hotel I thought this was highly unusual. We did at least get an offer of having our bags carried up to our room on...

Visiting this hotel for the first time, was by no means disappointing. This beautifully decorated hotel was one of the nicest I have stayed in. The staff very friendly. The room very nice, plenty of space. Equipped with TV, telephone, alarm clock, and ample supply of tea and coffee. There is a restaurant, which, although I did not use, was...

The hotel room was a bit basic (mainly the bathroom), but extremely clean and had a great night sleep. The staff were extremely friendly and professional. The hotel restaurant was surprisingly of really good quality and tasted amazing.

We stayed at the hotel last Saturday. This place ticked most of the boxes - nice big room, clean, comfortable, nice bar area and friendly staff. We got back to our room at around 11.30pm as I had to work the next day.However any chance of getting sleep was scuppered by the inconsiderate people next door who decided to have...

Good rates at the weekend for a spacious, clean, well equipped room with a large comfortable bed. The staff are helpful and the secure (free) parking and free wi-fi very welcome. The location is convenient without being on top of the town and the station and some good restaurants are only a short walk away. I can't recommend the in...

A late checkout is dependent upon how busy the hotel is on the day you wish to have this.

We always suggest you ask the Duty Receptionist upon your arrival, if this facility is available.

If the hotel is busy/Fully booked we can only offer a late check out time of Midday.

If the facility is available, it is at a charge of £20.00 per hour, from 11am.
