“Very good!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

The hotel was welcoming, warm and the staff were polite and helpful, free parking is close by and plentiful. There was a rather strong smell of chlorine from the swimming pool as you entered, but can't say it bothered us. The hotel bar was OK, but not somewhere you'd really want to linger, and there were no real ales....always a let down for my husband! Our executive room was on the corner of the building so had double aspect windows with a good view of the sea. It was over warm for us, but in order to open the windows you had to open the secondary glazing which made it noisy, we overcame this by leaving them open whilst we were out and closing them when got back. Overall decor was good, bathroom clean and pleasant, but the carpets, (as is the case of most hotels I visit) could do with a good shampooing! Breakfast was excellent, one of the best I've had in some time! We did not get around to eating dinner in the town, so ordered sandwiches in our room, which were fresh tasty and well presented. Didn't use pool/spa so can't comment, but it looked nice!

My mother and I stayed at this hotel between February 24 and 27 on a coach holiday. I had contacted the hotel with several queries prior to booking and each question was answered fully and was a great help to making us when deciding to book the holiday. Many thanks to Darren Lacey, Reservations Manager for his kindness and patience in answering my questions. The hotel is only a 3 star, but we, like others in our party, feel it should be a 4 star hotel. The décor was lovely and the rooms clean and spacious. As I use a wheelchair when away, we found that the spacious room was good for us and being able to maneuverer the wheelchair around. The bathroom was also large enough to accommodate my wheelchair and had bars by the toilet to aid getting up and down too. The staff were warm, friendly and welcoming and helpful too. There was a good choice of food at meal times, with something to cater for most tastes. If anyone couldn't find something to eat from the choices available, then they must have been very fussy and hard to please.

We enjoyed our stay and would love to return in the future if possible and will certainly recommend this hotel to others.

We're just back from a four day trip to this hotel with the above company.

The hotel is large and welcoming. We had bed, breakfast and evening meal.

The food was fantastic, I could not have had better food anywhere else. There was several choices at every course for dinner. Breakfast was cereal, yoghurt, prunes, fruit and full welsh cooked with the best bacon I've ever seen in a hotel!

The rooms were large with a really good hot shower.

There was also a leisure spa with pool, sauna, jacquizzi, very good my husband said.


We went out to several Welsh towns with an excellent driver called Paul.

All in all good value for money. We will definitely use this company again.

We did a £99 package overnight stay on Sat 22nd Feb - it included full use of Leisure services and 3 course dinner and full welsh breakfast on the sunday.Everything was perfect = Room was large and clean and pleasant,bathroom was spotless, shower lovely and warm. FREE Wifi too and a good strong connection all over hotel. The Pool was a bit busy but was clean - spa and steam and sauna were fine. Our allowance for dinner was 19.95 but you could have done that easily on most 3 courses, we chose slightly over the allowance but the food was beautiful and the staff were so helpful and pleasant. We had drinks after in the lounge area - very pleasant. We had a good nights sleep - hotel was remarkably quiet after 11.00 considering it was full, breakfast was help yourself and was hot,welcoming and so much you could never complain - once again the staff were on board to bring more toast and tea/coffee always with a smile and a bit of banter. Would certainly stay again!!!!

Room Tip: We were in Rooms 138 and 139 far enough away from Reception - there is also a Lift which my dad at 8...

Stayed here for 4 nights with my children and we had a lovely time. The room was very clean and spacious. Food was also good. Could not fault the staff at all, they were all very friendly and polite.
My only niggle is the noise coming from the floor above, in the night they sounded like a herd of elephants!! We were on the second floor so I would advise asking for an upper floor if possible.
