I was a bit skeptical when we first arrived because we had some trouble finding the parking lot and the first appearance on the inside of the hotel seemed very rundown and in need of refurbishment. However, once we saw the view from our room we were so pleased to stay there! There was a beautiful panoramic view of the sea through three huge windows! Fell asleep watching the sunset and woke up to the sunrise over crashing waves. Would definitely return just to see this view again and stay in the lovely clean, cozy room.

Room Tip: Request the rooms with the panoramic view of the sea!

The hotel has an excellent frontage and the welcome was warm and friendly. The room was in the 'annexe' and not too taxing a walk.But the view over Tolcarnne beach is amazing! Truly spectacular. Very comfortable bed and a lovely clean room.
We stayed Valentines night and spent a wonderful evening in the restaurant which had been decorated beautifully for the event.The staff were excellent-welcoming and very helpful.Food was superb with a free glass of champers!
The hotel is right on a headland with a roadway to Great Western Beach. An excellent way to spend an afternoon- a walk on the beach(or surf for the energetic) and then a glass of wine watching the sun go down. We will be back!!

Room Tip: request a sea view

Booked only a couple of days before arriving at the hotel. Good first impression of the reception area. We were on the first floor, and managed to get a partial sea view, which was a bonus as we hadn't asked for one! We were in one of the rooms still to be refurbished, but the room was still clean and all we needed for a nights stay. Bathroom was a bit pokey, but you can cope for a night! Only downside was all the creaky floorboards! Every time people moved on the floor above the floorboards would creak and groan! I would expect that this will get sorted with the refurb though! All in all, a very nice stay, and I would stay again if the price was right!

Room Tip: Try and get a top floor room to avoid those creaky floorboards!

I stayed at the great western with my girlfriend for two nights in (room 126) with a lovely sea view through a big bay window that's from ceiling too floor! Such gorgeous panoramic views over the Atlantic coast! The bed was lovely and comfy, room nice and warm and cosy. The place was very clean and en-suite bathroom was brilliant, would definitely recommend getting premier or even superior room. In the mornings I'd make tea/hot chocolate and we'd sit at the table and chairs in the bay window and watch the sun rise. It was just lovely! Food was nice next door in the steam bar, with plenty of other restaurants and shops nearby I would definitely come again.

Stayed here for one night. Nice greeting from receptionist. Booked the budget room a few hours before arrival and can't complain. Ok the room probably reflected the price however, was clean and comfortable and very close to amenities and rail station.
The hotel bar I found to be over priced. Lovely views over the bay.
For the price of accommodation I would stay here again
