Can't say I was impressed. Our television picture was terrible in that it had a grey line running across the middle of the screen. We had no hot water on the second night and despite having reported it, nothing was done. Had to fill the bath using the kettle. Also there breakfast is nothing to right Home about. We paid...

The location is fantastic - close to the beach, a short downhill walk from the train station, and near to bus stops, The staff were welcoming, the beds clean and the shower powerful. Breakfast was good and filling. This is all that we really need from a short seaside break. If you are looking for a hotel with wow factors,...

Shower door on bath broken. Tap on sink was lose and permanently dripped. We paid £118 basically for a bed and nice curtains. Breakfast was charged as...

Very very basic hotel. Is described as a b&b but you have to pay extra for breakfast so its basically a bed that you're paying for. Needs a damn good upgrade, new furniture. Luckily only stopped for two nights to see elderly relative so wasn't there much during the day. Needless to say didn't have breakfast so cannot comment on...

Where to start. Booked 2 rooms for us and another couple. Sent them 2 emails prior to booking, both ignored ! Receptionist completely unwelcoming. Looked at us like she wondered what we were doing there. Told they were "sorry" but the 2 rooms we booked were complete other ends of the hotel and in 2 different buildings, and 2 floors...

Actually live fairly close to this hotel and want to warn potential visitors that they do not see what we see. The fron of the hotel has been painted but the back (the part visitors do not see) is crumbling away, has virtually no paint left on the bricks and is filthy. The bin area is disgustingly dirty and rats...

Hello Shirley, Thanks for your input. We have been upgrading half the hotel since November 2015 and have invested over £150,000 since this date. Improving guest satisfaction is a key goal, and as we have limited finance, we need to insure this is invested in places where guests will benefit from the most. Although the back of the hotel is...
