Having watched the television programme a few years ago I really wasn't expecting very much. My husband and I stayed here for a night towards the end of July. Upon arrival the car park was full out front so we wasn't sure where to park. Found some where to put the car temporarily. Then Made our way into reception, where we was greeted by a lovely lady. She was very polite, informative and very professional. She instantly told us there was 2 other car parks and clearly explained where they were located. We were very impressed. She gave us directions to our room and where breakfast was being served in the morning.
Hotel has had work done so it is looking better than it did on TV! Our room was lovely. Considering it was the cheapest room and we booked with quite short notice we were very impressed. The room was huge with everything you could need. There was a lovely sea view and gorgeous view of the bowls club too. The bathroom was lovely and big too. Very clean.
Breakfast was nice however I felt the menu didn't have much choice on it really. As it is mainly a family hotel, there was quite a few families at breakfast time.
The location was perfect with a very short 5 -10 minute walk tops to the sea and beach. Town was only a 15 minute walk if that. Great hotel.
