What a lovely place this is, I cannot fault The Tower! From the warm welcome by very pleasant staff to the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, this place is a gem! Once again we opted for a simple lunch, I had one of the best Ploughman's ever and hubby had a BLT baguette with a portion of their excellent double-cooked chips!...

For a short stay to go to or coming from the ferry the hotel is a 5 minutes car drive to the pier. But the atmosphere and the decor of the hotel are rather dated. beds were small and mine was unstable. Small bathroom with few space to lay bath stuff. Parking is large on the terrain of the hotel....

I travelled all the way from Derby to have lunch with family for my sister in laws birthday which was a special birthday as my sister in law is terminally ill and this was probably her last birthday. The hotel itself looks beautiful, attention to detail. The bar area is nice and so is the outdoor area. So the restaurant,...

Booked a family pre xmas meal...what a disappointment, I could have cooked the meal better myself. Staff looked like they didn't want to be there, not attentive at all. Never came to see if we wanted drinks we had to ask them all the time when they actually appeared in the restaurant !!! Food was bland and tasteless we ordered...
