A lovely relaxed feel sitting outside under beautiful shady trees and watching the world go by as we ate a delicious lunch. Service was quietly attentive but we didn't feel rushed. The arancini balls are highly recommended :)

Had a couple of drinks bad dinner here. The price for the drinks is a bit on the high side but that what happens in these locations. The food and service was of a above average standard.

A local friend took us here for dinner. The back deck was rowdy, the bar was fairly quiet and the restaurant / bistro positively cultured by comparison. I had calamari, our friend had pasta and my partner had fish and chips. The pasta did not receive comment however the fish was a little on the dry side. My dish was... More

My meal of Fish and Chips at Sporties Restaurant was very disappointing as the fish was cold. The batter was warmish, but the fish was cold!! When I took it up to the waiter he put his finger in the fish and said 'its still hot'!! I was horrified when he did that and said 'its not'!! Five minutes or... More

My wife and I stayed here a few days , bed was comfortable , room was clean , bathroom is clean and large with excellent water pressure, location is close to shops and restaurants, TV reception was a bit hit and miss, for the price we are very happy

We sat outside the front of the hotel, under the leafy trees as it was a warm evening! Right from the start the waiter (a young guy with dark hair) was extremely friendly and helpful (with a good sense of humour). I had a new item on the menu - Moroccan Chicken with greens and a chickpea pattie! It was... More

We stayed in this hotel couple of nights and basically its name tells it all. There are few hotel rooms upstairs which are clean but there is pub downstairs. Partying is ok, i like it too, but in this hotel all the noise from pub is also loud on hotel rooms (poor noise insulation). Our room window did not shut... More
