No one to book you in at 9pm even though booking sites state until 10pm - only the barman on site to book you in once you've got him from the bar. Their website states the bar is open all day, but the shutters are down and padlocked. The staff are not friendly or local home from home people, indeed...

Having read previous reviews, we've come to the conclusion that you can't please everyone! You're room will vary from floor to floor, and from main building to annex. If you have any niggles Tina will try to rectify it quickly, if possible, For my wife and I, and our two friends, nothing was to complain about, If you were to...

hi firstly the breakfast was at 8:30 and dinner at 6:00 pm , I do not know any guest we served at 8 am everyday apart from serving all guests on departure day at 8 am on the 2nd January. so that's a blunt lie , main breakfast was served after you finished your cereals and it was served hot...

The room was not too bad as it had recently been re-furbished and painted. There was only one chair (it was a twin room), we thought there was only one socket for TV, kettle and hair dryer (plus charging phones etc), however we found two more hidden behind the wardrobe! We were in room 8 directly above the bar and...

hello sir there is one multiple socket - at 68 years old i do not assume that guests can watch TV , dry hair and make a cup of coffe to boil a kettle and charge phone all at the same time. im sure at home you must be having 20 -25 sockets to charge everything you have in your...

A basic two star seaside hotel, which serves coach parties, if you don’t expect four star standards when you have only paid a low price then you will be more than satisfied. Most of the bad reports we would think had a small problem which they then over enlarged. My wife and I were satisfied with our 3 night stay....
