Reviewed 7 July 2012

We booked this hotel in April as it looked just what we were looking for to celebrate our aniversary, we booked for three days and we had friends coming to stay on the friday to celebrate with us. On arrival we were taken to our room only to find that the ensuite room had no shower and had only a small 19 inch television on the wall the mattress on the bed seamed to have seen better days! We complained and was taken to another room that had a shower but the bed was two single beds pushed together so the duvet was short by two inches each side. It was clean no dust but both the bedroom and bathroom windows had mould on them and the bedroom window would not stay open. When our friends arrived I really hoped they would have a nice room but they weren't it was worst than ours!! At £80.00 a night it's robbery. The staff were very pleasant and helpfully but I've afraid this hotel is very basic.

Me and my husband stay here in may as a belated anniversary present and I must say it was a very pleasant and well presented hotel, the Staff were very helpful and accommodating, meals were excellently presented and tasty too, rooms were airy, spacious and newly decorated and the facilities were great too. Very clean and well maintained, love the gymnasium, indoor/outdoor pools, sauna, jacuzzi, hair salon and beauty rooms too. Centralised location to all the shop. Highly recommended A****

i had my wedding reception here was well decorated and sorted out for us... couldnt say thanks you anymore than i did... some very polite staff was working the night and was very helpful at times...! the only problems i had was with the members of public coming past and stealing our food on way to swimming pool considering they were ment to be using other entrance and public stealing lot of our balloons...:-)... i wouldnt of minded if they asked me... drinks were abit pricey but well worth the night i really enjoyed myself... other than the few problems above..!!

I think this is a new place and very close to the sea for the people that like to be close and have a great few,nice facilities.., but dont get me wrong we had my sisters wedding reception here on the 12th of may and it was a greatly decorated reception and the staff were polite to me but rude to a few others and then also we had booked the reception for my sisters wedding ONLY.., but had many others walking through which was the only let down and they took some of the balloons for their children..which myself felt was rude to be honest.And also they had a table of at least 8 people sit down and have a meal within our reception along with their members walking through and eating the food that my brother in law's mum made very kindly...so altogether and over all ill say a nice place to stay for a hotel ...but for wedding receptions u may be left a little dissapointed. :D Thanks for the wedding reception though it was nice over all except its faults.

I have stayed here a long time ago and what a change different owners make. In a difficult period for everyone who is tightening their belts you still need to escape and be able to relax but hard to find a place for a long weekend that is value for money and a place to take the whole family including our dogs! From the moment we stepped through the door it was like home from home, small hotel but plenty to do and in an ideal place for the seafront and long walks with the dogs (parks nearby) The staff could not do enough for us and the food was wonderful (lovely conservatory) but best of all being able to swim, have a sauna and jacuzzi nearby with quite times for adults without children. Definately coming back again and again when we have the chance. After a awful 2011 as a family we are ready to face 2012!

Room Tip: If you are two adults with one or two children then ask for the sea view room upstairs its wonderful...
