Having read some of the reviews on trip advisor I was in two minds over going to this hotel, I'm glad I did. It's cheaper to book directly than on any other site. We paid £60 per room which included breakfast, so here we go the bad bit.... the walls are paper thin, that did not bother me but it...

Clean and comfortable. Good breakfast choice. I had haddock and poached egg one day and smoked mackerel another with the full English on the last morning. Plenty of choice well presented and hot. The steam room and oil were nice. The room wasn't massive but was adequate and ensuite. My only complaint was most of the islands attractions were closed....

We had spent more than 406 pounds for two nights during 30th and 31st Dec with the belief that it is indeed a 4 star guest house accommodation. The size of the room is very small not fit to accommodate three people( me, my wife and my 5 year old kid). There was no wash basin in the toilet and...

Met a few people we had seen there before, which was nice. Food was plentiful, good job we could get out for a walk with the dogs to...

My son did the booking as he was going to drive so that we all went in one car, I am not sure what rating the hotel has but is very good. This was our second visit and I am sure will not be our last. We booked for just bed and breakfast and were well pleased with everything. Our...

This is a lovely hotel which is clean, functional and has very polite & welcoming staff. The location is also good (by the beach/pier, good bus routes etc, also nice for cycling). The problem I had was that on the first night a guest decided to blast his TV volume up from 11pm-1am (waking & keeping me up when I...

Why did you not let us know about the problem, either by coming to Reception or by telephoning us? The problem could then have quickly been solved as we could have quickly identified the noisy guest's room and requested that the TV volume be reduced. To a certain extent we agree that the suggested "noise level" signs in rooms would...

It is on a brilliant strategic location. But the property itself is going to ruins. It has literally cardboard rooms in which you can even hear the other people breathing in their room. Very uncomfortable beds plus you can hear floor creaking noise when anybody walks around. Dirty smelly carpets to compliment with everything. In morning the reception will never...

Firstly, we are not a 4 Star HOTEL. We make it clear that we are a 4 Star GUEST ACCOMMODATION establishment (which sits between HOTEL and GUEST HOUSE) and we choose to be demoted to Guest House in any description. Sandrock S's contribution is more of an "assassination" than a "review" and we leave it to readers to judge for...
