We stayed at this hotel on the 27th August for 1 night and came with some friends who also were a family of four. We had a family room. The bathroom was lovely and very spacious. Only a couple of bad points 1) the walls were too thin and we heard a baby cry for over half an hour while we were trying to sleep. 2) my sons airbed was really uncomfortable and we would prefer bunk beds next time 3) the pillows were really uncomfortable, but being an English break we would take our own pillows next time from home. Some good points were: 1) the hotel was directly opposite the beach perfect location and in the main shopping lane, 2) we ate in the Italian restaurant for dinner which was next door to the hotel, so we didn't have far to walk!!! 3) the breakfast was delicious, we ordered anything we wanted on the cooked menu and there was also fruit, yogurt & cereal available and plenty of tea & coffee... The hotel also provided us with a car parking ticket so we didn't have to pay for it! Overall it was really lovely and will definitely revisit.
