“A great stay”
Reviewed 11 June 2007

I had an excellent experience in the Pier hotel over the period of about 7 months where I worked locally in the area. I had previously stayed in a couple of other local hotels, which frankly, didn’t have a patch on The Pier. When spending so much time away from home, feeling welcome with good food and friendly people is essential. The owners and staff always greet you with a smile and treat you like part of the family, and when dining in the same place most nights due to being tired the food was always perfect.

The rooms are tidy and well decorated and when you require something a little extra someone was always willing to assist. Carrying out business across the country requires little extras and they are provided here, FREE wireless Internet access and sky TV when you cant be bothered doing much else is great.

A stay well worth the money and location is perfect for the beach and various other activities; my only regret is I will not be here in the summer to sit out on the esplanade with a cold beer!!

On the plus side location is very good and breakfast was great.

Down side... Owners were intimidating and made us feel very uncomfortable, bed was small

Think very carefully before booking - I do not belive all the 5* ratings, this is the worst 'hotel' I have ever stayed in.

We visit many hotels in race towns. Just returned from The Pier. Our Room 15 was delightful. The breakfasts were the best we have enjoyed for a long time. (including some 5 star!) Very attentive staff.
