My husband & I stayed here for one night on 23 January. From checking-in to checking-out, the staff could not do enough for us. They were extremely welcoming & friendly and didn't mind us having our small dog with us. Unlike every other hotel we've stayed in, there was no charge for the dog and we didn't feel as though we had an inferior room. The hotel was easy to find, in a good location with loads of parking at the back. We went for a beautiful walk on the beach, which is just across the road.
The bar area is very nice, with Sky Tv, including sports channels and the drinks prices are reasonable. We were offered the option of eating in the restaurant or bar area and they accommodated a smaller meal for us, as we had eaten a late lunch. The food was delicious and the prices very competitive. There are also pubs, bars, cafes & restaurant very nearby if you want to eat & drink out.
The whole hotel is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. My husband is very particular about cleanliness and even he couldn't find a spec of dirt or dust anywhere!
Breakfast was great, with lots of cooked choices as well as cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts etc. We were also offered as much toast as we wanted. The sea views from the dining room are lovely and very relaxing.
Overall, I would say this is one of the friendliest (without being intrusive) hotels I have ever stayed at and I would not hesitate to stay there again. If pushed to criticise anything, we would have liked thicker bath towels.
Thanks for a lovely stay and we hope to see you again!
