Had a great time at this hotel. Staff were welcoming, you immediately felt relaxed. The room was spotlessly clean and bed very comfortable. We ate in the restaurant on the first night the curry was lovely. The breakfast menu is huge and caterers for everyone. Portions were huge,

What a shame that this great venue has changed from a laid back beach vibe to a grubby enclosed sports type bar. Table was grubby and the waitress was very cross at having to clean it. Another staff member plonked a dirty water pitcher on the table with two grubby glasses. The

Hi Leah, We are really saddened to see this. We can promise we aren't a sports bar. We did choose to show the six nations rugby this year on our projector screen outside - we aren't usually playing sports. It was something a bit different, but lots of fun for the time the rugby was on. We were very busy this Sunday and we are sorry we didn't rise to your expectations - we can PROMISE you, these aren't our normal standards. Your mother in law is right to love us! We hope you give us another chance in the future and join us for a more relaxed, beachy vibe dinner that we are known for. Please send us a message on Facebook or via email if you'd like to discuss further. Hugs x

A seriously cool little hotel in a fabulous spot. We stayed this weekend because of its proximity to the O2 Academy up the road but this place is a gem in itself. Squeaky clean rooms, fantastic, friendly staff and a great selection of food and drink on offer. We didn't eat, but

Does the hotel have a lift?
As mentioned, worth checking with the hotel but didn't see one and can't see how the building would be able to fit one.

Are pets welcome? Thanks!
Probably - but I don't think that they will accommodate horses!
