“Enjoyable break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

We were looking to have a couple of quiet nights away and found the hotel were running a webdeal. At high season, I'm guessing the place is quite bustling (judging from pix on their website), but we went low season (early March). We'd unwittingly timed our visit to coincide with the UEFA football which was on downstairs in the bar, so were lucky the manager had fixed us up with a lovely room overlooking the sea, out of earshot of enthusiastic fans!

There's a small gym plus swimming pool downstairs & times are restricted on pool use. Facilities have to be paid for separately but a day pass is very reasonable. We enjoyed the warm pool so much that we forgot there was also a sauna & jacuzzi, too.

We were surprised to find the parking so in demand at low season, and were lucky to get a space. Had we been planning day trips, we might've worried we wouldn't find a spot upon our return. (Am guessing the high demand is due to the bar & gym being open to non-residents as well as guests?)

Breakfast was wonderful... Cereal/tea/OJ/cooked English, the lot... Nice & filling, with a sea view through the conservatory windows to boot. On the webdeal, our evening meal was a bit more restricted in choice for the price (fair enough). The meals were of the 'bar type' meal variety, but this was fine for a couple of nights.

Staff were very welcoming, helpful & accommodating. Rooms were clean & tidy and there's freeview TV in the rooms. Also wireless, we're told (that's wireless internet, not a radio!).

We normally travel about in our campervan, but couldn't be bothered with packing up the camper & cooking for ourselves this time around, and just fancied a bit of pampering in nice surroundings. We'd definitely consider stopping here again should we need another break from campervanning & housework!

Room Tip: If you are staying in high season and are the type to need your early nights, it might be better to...

Will not be staying there again. Went for 3 nights with my husband as we couldn, t get in to our usual hotel. Rooms very spacious but dated, nice seaviews but floorboards have had it, You can here everything above you. We didn, t sleep at all and checked out early. Also no breakfast menu you get what you, re given. Absolutely ruined our weekend and would never go back there again.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for one on the top floor.

I stayed at this place for 2 nights on the 26 Feb bed breakfast & evening meal, The staff are very friendly and made you feel very welcome food was excellent and the deals at the bar are very very good even the normal prices on a pint are reasonable for a hotel, the room that my partner and i had was clean and tidy had everything you needed,the bathroom was like being in a 5 star hotel very very clean and very modern.we enjoyed our stay that much that we will be going back there and this time taking a few of our friends, Never got to use the leisure center but what i could see of it looks excellent, must be good as there was always lots of people going in and out, the rooms have a great view of the sea,when i am laying on the bed it looks like being on a cruise,

I do like your hotel , many rooms having a good sea view. It would be nice if some of your rooms also had a mini fridge . Car parking is fine. Your location is good for public transport links too. Your bar appears to be well looked after.

Stayed there when we went to the theatre. Within walking distance to the town centre,theatre and the beach. Good Clean hotel and friendly staff, also with a pool, but check access times as they are limited because of swimming lessons?

Room Tip: All rooms as far as we could tell faced the beach?

Last minute booking for partners birthday, ideal location fantastic views and staff could not of been friendlier or more helpful. The first night of our stay decided to stay at hotel, food was value for money and tasty. lively bar but when we retired could not be heard from room which was a blessing. Breakfast overlooking the bay was a treat in all respects followed by 10 minute walk into town, would definately stay again although was disappointed not to have biscuits in room to go with tea and cofee, this would have rouned it off!
