Had a lovely stay here. Yes it has dated decor, and furnishing. But, everything is clean and tidy, the bed was comfy, linen and towels were clean. Breakfast, was buffet style, and to be perfectly honest was tasty. This hotel does what it says on the tin. If you you want 5stars look else where. If you want a comfy...

This hotel has more than likely been owned by the same people for some years and they are set in their ways! The guest rooms are dated, unclean and in huge need of renovation. Even the wall paper was trying to get away! There were screws sticking out from the wall, the windows let all the cold air in so...

Stayed here as an impromptu New Year's Eve location with the mrs. After trying to surprise her with a night away - it's safe to say that I'm no longer allowed to book hotels. We arrived to what I think was either Karaoke or a cat being murdered with a rusty chainsaw - I was too scared to check. The...

Shocking hotel, very tired and dirty from the outside. Awful inside, tiny bed, ripped linoleum in the bathroom, sliding old wooden door to minuscule bathroom. Small tv but huge old fashioned set, not flatscreen. Very tired throughout, tape over patches of carpet everywhere. View from window was flat roof at back of building. Can't believe it was so full there...

Clean bed linen, Nice breakfast, parking available, location for Woolacombe excellent. However décor tired, room very cold at night they turn the heating off at night. Shower room something from the 1970s grubby and shower not working properly. Needs a total revamp but what hotels have the money to do this nowadays. Balconies in a dreadful state.

Staff friendly , breakfast self service but tasty .Room very clean.View from hotel and dining room outstanding . These are reason for 3/5. Cheap but needs hotel needs updating to bring into 21st century. Ideal for short stay say 1/2 days. With a lot of money spent could be great hotel with position and view.

Hotel is in need of a serious makeover inside and out. It was a place to put our heads. Friendly staff a bar and a good breakfast in the mornings. Swimming pool was good but as said before the place needs improvement with money spent on rooms and general maintenance.
