just back from a two day stay at this hotel 2 nights £132 we took a very small chow dog the room went up To £150 when we went to the dinning room they said we had not booked a meal and showed us to the hotel Indian restaurant £49 for the meal next morning we went for breakfast every one had there names on the tables but us we had to stand by the door for 10 minutes till a table came free even though 10 tables were empty cut my leg twice on the bed had 2 metal spike sticking thru the mattress see photos complained no good managers children running across the floor above our room the noise was terrible 7 am in the morning. don't stay on the 2 floor several guests also complained no good. A 1/2 of fosters was £1.75 and a glass a wine was £4.95 a 80 year old woman complained about £3.70 price for a high ball glass of advocate and lemonade she was told pay for it or we take it back and pour it down the sink. the rooms are very small and the lighting is only at one end of the room and very dim had to lift the case on to the bed to see inside we drove 4 hours to go here bad choice listened to the reviews on trip advisor now I told the truth not a bit of discount thru the bed hurting my leg .

Room Tip: Don't go on the 2nd floor very noisy and you certainly wont get a lie in.

Was very lucky with the weather for our weekend,was sunny and very warm for the time of year,
Hotel room small bathroom extrememly small, on the lower ground floor we was situated.
Everything was clean, and beds very comfortable, had a real good nights sleep.
Food here is very good standard, lots of people eating in the dining room at night,
and for £5.95 there was fish n chips. Gammon and egg,Roast of the Day,, Burger Stack,
very good value for money, wine by the bottle expensive, at £12.95 served for £9.95 apparently
when there is a coach load in,,,errm dont seem to understand that, seems quite unfair, which means of transport we took to arrive,
Breakfast was very good, hot replenished all the time and staff was very good too and so hardworking.
Would return.

Room Tip: Larger rooms seem to be on the top floor with balconys sea view.

We have stopped in this hotel before, and i must say it is still a good hotel.
Excellent location, not far from the beach and a fab walk to Gibraltar Point.
Our room was quite small but clean and comfortable and for what we paid for this two night stay it was excellent value.
