I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. I found the room very cosy and the bathroom was clean. The staff are very friendly and accommating, they make you feel welcome and valued. I'd recommend booking directly through the hotel website as you would get breakfast included which included cereals and various English continental breakfast foods. One recommendation would be...

Our sea view room (11) was a good size. It was on the side of the hotel which meant the sea view was at an angle but also that we were slightly away from the road which meant it was quieter. We booked direct with the hotel - they matched the best online price but also gave us free breakfasts....

We stayed for 2 nights for our 49th Wedding Anniversary in March. We had a de-luxe room which had a large bay window with super views along the coast. The room was very clean, the bed very comfortable and the linen as new. Tea & coffee making facilities were provided. The radiator kept the room lovely and warm and was...

Amazing experience. Wine tasting lead by the very knowledgeable Hardy from Cru (classy wine bar in town) and each wine accompanied by a sample dish expertly chosen to match the wine. Fabulous atmosphere, excellent service, best moules marinières I have tasted in years the only thing missing was a bit of French bread. Can't wait to go back! Oh and...

During our schooltrip, our pupils stayed in host families. We stayed in this simple and clean hotel. The room was large for three people. It was a clean hotel and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast buffet with full English breakfast and other options. We had dinner once which was very tasty.

My partner and I stayed for one night at the beginning of April whist seeing friends. It's disappointing to have to give a negative about this hotel as most of the staff we spoke to were really pleasant and helpful. The hotel is situated on the sea front and even from the side, we could look out to some beautiful...

So we just stayed at West Rocks Hotel with our beagle dog Gatsby (his first holiday away) for two nights on Thursday 30th and Friday 31st March 2017.
