“excellent friendly staff and brilliant service.”
Reviewed 5 May 2011

Me and my partner have stayed at the Almar for 5 years and love every minute of it, we hate leaving. Bev and Phil are the most friendly people we have ever met. The hotel should be rated 5*, the rooms are extremely clean and tidy with a very clean smell as you walk into the room. The hotel is close to the park, and the sea with brilliant views. Breakfast is extremely good and they provide a range of cereals fruit and full english breakfasts.
I would recommend anyone to stay in this hotel especially room 4, it an excellent hotel, try it you definately wont be disappointed. 10/10 for everything, we wouldnt stay anywhere else. It is in a great location for pubs, clubs and resturants. The Albert pub, Kam sang chinese and eastern paradise indians are excellent places to eat you wont be disappointed.
One tip book early as this hotel is so good you need to book in advance, it is always fully booked.

Room Tip: book early as this hotel is always fully booked.

This B and B provides a great all round service. The rooms are very comfortable, the owners offer a warm and friendly service and there isn't anything they won't do for you. The food is very tasty and theres plenty of it. We have stayed there twice already and would definately go back again

Reviewed 20 September 2010

On arriving at The Almar we could not find parking,there wasn't enough space but we was pleased to be greeted by the couple,rather than one owner or a member of staff.They were friendly and helped us with parking.
The rooms,as well as the rest of the building was very clean and tidy with a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere.Our room was well supplied with towels and we was shown how to use the facillities.
The breakfast was wonderful.Local produce with plenty of cereal and juice on offer.The owners were only too pleased to help us with ideas on places to go and gave us a quick guide to the area,buses,closing times,etc.
Upon leaving we were seen off and that made the trip more personal and welcoming.
I would highly reccommend this place,it's close to the beach and all you need.The owners are a wonderful couple who put their customers needs first.

The bedrooms are very clean and tidy, even if they are not the biggest.

The owners are very helpful and kind and give very good information about the town and its attractions.

Breakfast was tastey and promptly served.
