Very busy on arrival late on a Saturday night, but given a friendly welcome. Rooms clean and comfortable with spotless bedlinen and big fluffy pillows. Lovely position right opposite the beach. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: Book early to get a sea view.

Right on the seafront, we were in a room that was in a separate block with a view of the seafront. Probably a good idea in summer as think the Navigator would be very noise as it is the focus of a night out on this stretch of the sea front. Make sure you have a reservation if you want to eat in the restaurant ad it's extremely popular even on a week day. The steaks were fab!
The room itself could do with a paint in the bathroom and maybe a dressing table surface, being a bit picky though!

When we arrived here and drove past looking for a parking space I must admit my heart sank a little at the exterior appearance. We entered reception (actually a very "rustic" pub) through a haze of cigarette smoke in the doorway. Whilst booking in we were told the rooms were actually in their sister hotel just down the road a bit, now this immediately made me think bait and switch, i.e advertise somewhere that looks nice then dump people in something resembling run down council flats, I wasn't too far wrong. The exterior was let's say, less than appealing, the stairway up to the rooms was very narrow and could best be described as dingy. However the room seemed okay, clean, with the tiniest TV screen I have ever seen mounted to the wall. The view from the window was of a wall a few feet away. We headed out for dinner and, finding a lack of anywhere that looked appealing nearby ate in the restaurant, this was okay, typical pub grub.

Now, this is where it went downhill. I noticed when we were taken to our rooms it looked like there was a private flat on the ground floor with our rooms being on the first floor. I can only assume my room was directly above this private flat (and without wishing to stereotype I would imagine this is very low rent accommodation) . Anyway, I was kept awake until around 4am by the sounds of arguing and door slamming, as this was a business trip (sadly we don't get to book our own rooms) and having to be up at 7.30 this was absolutely not satisfactory.

Room Tip: Don't stay here, what's advertised is not where we ended up.

We stayed here for one night in October 2013. It was more like staying in a cozy B&B. Staff were super friendly, treated you like a friend from the first minute we stepped foot on the premises. The rooms are small but clean, warm and cozy! The location is fab with the sea across the road from the hotel. The bar was busy, we had our evening meal in the restaurant and it was lovely. I couldn't fault this place at all! I would definitely stay here again if Im ever back in the area. Highly recommended, especially for couples!

What a little treasure this place is! We arrived for our one night stay on a Sunday lunchtime and the place was buzzing, mainly with people eating both in the restaurant and the pub. The food, especially the roast dinners, looked and smelt delicious, we were devastated we weren't eating there. We stayed in room 3 which has a sea view and along with the sumptuously comfy bed and sitting area overlooking the sea, cleanliness and attention to detail we were really impressed. Staff were so friendly and the breakfast in the morning kept us going all day. We shall definitely visit again.

Stayed on Saturday for one night with my husband while attending a friend's 50th Birthday. We had room 3 which was very big with a huge bed and a seating area overlooking the sea. The weather was fantastic this weekend so very very glad that we selected the sea view. Breakfast was a bit slow but that is the only complaint, apart from the statue and cart on the roof which blocked our view of the sunset - needs to be taken away - it adds nothing to the look of the place and makes it look run down. Despite being on the seafront on a beautiful evening, it was extremely quiet. I don't generally sleep well when away for the night as we have a fantastic superking sized electric bed at home and nothing compares to it. However, the bed in room 3 was the most comfortable we have slept in, and we have travelled quite a bit, and the sheets were really good quality. Only other small point I would mention is that, although clean, the towels are very small. We didn't eat in the restaurant but there were lots of people there and the bar had a good feeling about it with a mix of age groups.

Room Tip: Room 3 was very large and very comfortable with a cracking sea view

I was staying in the hotel along the road from this restaurant and had it not been for a recommendation, I would have walked straight past this restaurant. However, it was recommended so we thought we would give it a go.
We had lunch and were offered the 2 for 1 menu or the a la carte. We opted for the a la carte and I have to say we were delighted.
We had a three course meal with wine and drinks. The food was superb and the service second to none. The staff could not have been more helpful or attentive.
It was excellent value for money and when we went to pay the bill, the staff checked to see whether they could have offered any discount based on what we had ordered.
When the bill came, it was less than £100 for three including 2 bottles of wine and other drinks. We all had a starter and a main course from the a la carte and we had one portion of cheese and biscuits.
There is no doubt in my mind that I would go back again - well done and thank you Navigator!!
