“Pub with accommodation”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Overall this hotel ticked most of the boxes for me, I wanted a bed for the night and able to get food. The barmaid doubled as receptionist, she was very helpful even though she was busy serving in the bar. They serve food from 6.00 pm in the evenings, the staff were very friendly, the food was OK. The room was large, warm and clean , with a modern bathroom ( no shaver point) . Comfortable bed but small TV. The water I used for a brew tasted funny, but that could have been me who is used to a soft water area.
Breakfast is only served between 9 and 9.30 , and was cooked to order. The lady who served breakfast was polite and efficient .

Great stay with welcoming staff who were very friendly and helpful throughout! Wonderful views from the room and also the outdoor seating area. Only negative is car park is a little on the small side, (although i was in a van). Meals were lovely and very competitivly priced. A thoroughly enjoyable stay alround

We stayed at this hotel for one night in January. The room we had booked online was not the one we were given, however, the one we were offered was very nice, large, clean and with lovely views out over the sea. The shower was a major disappointment, very low pressure, and the bed could do with a new mattress fairly soon, but all in all a very nice stay. The breakfast was absolutely excellent - freshly cooked to order with good ingredients (all except the sausage). Staff were polite and helpful.

Room was a good size, with great bathroom facilities and excellent sea views. We stayed during the winter storms and the views were still unrivaled. Friendly staff and good choice on the menu, the carvery is also well worth a try.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are worth the upgrade.

We had a lovely stay after a Busy Xmas and New Year... The rooms are clean, modern and really comfortable with superb seaside views...The staff were very accommodating and the food for the price was delicious...And the best was when I'd left my best coat there...they were good enough to post it home to me...for free, now that is courteous to me...Thank you...

Room Tip: Room 7 is the end room, quiet with superb views and window seats...
