I booked 3 Seaview rooms in January for a party at the hotel in March. I asked if there was disability access and was told there was not. That was fine as I could help my mother up the stairs to the hotel but could she have a room with a walk in shower. I was told yes. When

Good quality hotel food wonderful and the staff are excellent nothing is too Much trouble. The rooms are adequate but the hotel could do with a face lift as it’s looking a bit tired. Great location on the sea from not too far from the pier and also the shopping centre.

Dear Eileen, Many thanks for choosing our hotel and for taking your time to review it. I would like to thank you on behalf of all the staff for your nice comments about them, the food and the overall cleanliness. I am very sorry you experienced some problems with the hot water during your stay. This was due to a fail in one of our boilers, which was fixed a few days later by the manufacturer. We would love to have you back soon. Best regards, Management

Is there parking at the hotel Please?
Unfortunately not. There is a multi-storey Car Park less than 5 mins walk away. Some people are lucky enough to find a space along the seafront but not many spaces

Yes there is. However, it just about copes with simple data. You would be unable to play live videos. I couldn't get cricket on Sky. You could maybe download stuff, but suspect might take a while. WiFi died totally for a day. Staff couldn't fix. There is staff WiFi, for which you might charm staff into giving password - I couldn't, however. Claimed needed for the business.

do you have smoking rooms
I do not smoke so I did not see any smoking rooms when I was there, but they do have a garden area at the back. The reception desk was very helpful, give them a ring I'm sure they will be able to advise you. The telephone number is 01323727411.
