Reviewed 28 July 2016

Booked last minute for three adults for 1 night and after we had read the reviews we were unsure what to expect, however we were pleasantly surprised. The room was nice and plenty big enough and we had a double bed on a mezzanine floor and a single one downstairs. We also had a balcony with a lovely sea view. The bathroom was lovely and looked like it had been recently done up. Towels and toiletries were provided. The only complaint we had was the floor could have done with a sweep as it felt a bit gritty underfoot.
We knew we were going to be late arriving so we telephoned the hotel and made arrangements with them so it wasn't a problem.
For the price we paid it was good value and we would stay again for that reason but as we prefer somewhere that provides a breakfast we would probably look for somewhere else that offers this.

Room Tip: Rooms with balcony are nice.

The Astral Lodge was a basic hotel .. Double room was very clean with a comfortable bed , clean bathroom ( No towels so bring your own ) great view of pier & sea ..The young girl on reception was very polite .. No food is served so a 5 minute walk to many of the cafe's or Wetherspoon's for breakfast..

Room Tip: 8 has a seaview

Lodge was clean and great location, we had seafront room which was nice. Good for the price we paid, owners were very nice. stay on seafront if you can as cheaper than staying in front of Astral Lodge.

Booked the Astral Lodge for price and location, although was a little unsure after reading the reviews. We had four single rooms, 1, 2, 20 + 25, all recently refurbished, very comfortable, no view but we asked for quiet which was perfect. Laura on the desk was incredibly helpful. We would use again and recommend to others. Parking available on meter outside, and the underground which was free 4pm to 11am with permit from hotel.

It is quite a basic hotel/ lodge with limited facilities.

Location is excellent. We got a parking pass from the reception from 4pm to 11am next day. Very good restaurants nearby and loads of activities for children.

Not so positive aspects-
Family room was really tiny with bunk beds
Creaking floor in bathroom, shower holder broken, wash basin outlet blocked (thankfully partially)- taking a long time for water to drain.
It was very noisy from other rooms- could clearly hear someone snoring from adjacent room.
Lot of noise from the street- people shouting at 2 AM, although we were on 3rd floor (with no lifts). Sound proofing (or the lack of it) is a major issue.

The room was not cheap either. I would not recommend the hotel to anyone, especially family with kids.
