Although not sea front the hotel was only a short stroll from pier, beach and other seaside attractions.
Lovely, friendly staff, keen to please.
Clean, basic room, with new fitted bathroom.
Lovely food, plenty of choice, hot and served quickly with a smile.
Good entertainment, geered to the more mature visitor, but I like Elvis, 60's 70's the last night being the best a V.J. Doing a trip down memory lane, very entertaining!
A lift is nearly installed, this caused no disruption to our holiday.
I would recommend this hotel, it is basic,clean and reliable.

Stayed at this hotel over the Easter weekend. Rooms were basic but clean, and food was adequate. Staff were friendly, but some concerns over the electric fittings. Light switch on bedlamp was dodgy, and also whole floor had no supply for TV, kettle etc for an hour, whilst staff sorted it out. Also room was heated with portable electric heater, which had to be turned off at night as it was close to bed, and as the weather was not clever, very cold in the morning. Also on being given room key, we arrived at the room and another couple were in it. They had got the wrong room, they should have been next door, but my concern was did all the keys fit every room.

Don't understand previous review. Stayed at hotel from 15 th march for 4 days. A lift is being installed in one part of the hotel but didn't see any workmen or dust. Infact hotel was spotless. Rooms are not large, but adequate, decor a little tired, but great new bathroom with fab shower. Staff friendly and efficient and food very good and plentiful. Was on a coach trip and rest of the party thought the weekend was great value. Would return.

This hotel is like a building site, we arrived to find a huge hole in the wall next to reception where they are going to put a lift in, this carried on up through the other floors. There was a wheelbarrow full of sand and cement and bags of sand piled up the wall. The carpets had seen better days and when we were shown to our rooms my sisters room had a huge crack in the ceiling and paper hanging off, only one wardrobe door on and the fire fell of the wall. The place was freezing cold despite the owner saying the heating was on. There was dust and dirt all through the hotel and despite being shown other rooms in the hotel we decided not to stay there as the hotel was so cold. We were so glad we decided to take our own car and not gone on the bus trip because we would not have been able to move hotels. This hotel needs to be closed down until all the refurbishment has taken place. If anyone suffers with a bad chest the dust is not good. Definitely would not recommend, we moved to another hotel which was spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated.

Not a 4star in my opinion. Room was very cold. Don't have a room in the annex as they are damp and cold meals were very good. Staff very good. The room tried to be a 4star by adding a luggage rack. But they were so small you couldn't put it up
The bar prices were reasonable. And the entertainment. Ok
