“Excellent inexpensive hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

We spent 4 days in this hotel last week, despite having read some very negative reviews. We found a beautifully clean, modern bedroom with great views. The dinners were excellent each evening as were the breakfasts. The staff, both Eastern Europeans and English were charming and helpful. Yes there were a lot of elderly guests, who were obviously having lots of fun; why are some people so negative about age? All in all - brilliant

Room Tip: We didn't pay extra for a sea view, but got one anyway (Room 67)

Spent Monday to Thursday last week (our 3rd visit) and found it to be possoibly our best experience to date. We had a newly refurbished second floor twin room. New carpets, curtains, very comfortable beds and chairs. The food was very good and the service excellent - fast and friendly. We enjoyed the evening entertainment on the Monday and Tuesday evenings although it was a shame the audience wasn't ;larger -( the Hotel was reasonably quiet last week) unlike our previous visits when it was full. Overall we couldn't fault anything and will certainly be paying a 4th visit, hopefully later in the year. Such good value too - with the Ferry fare included

Room Tip: We were in Room 86 - 2nd floor - no noise and even a side sea view - lovely to see the ships!

Comfortable re-furbished seaside hotel with pleasant staff and good food. New bathroom with my room but bath too small for my 6'3" and shower rather weak. Otherwise comfortable and well decorated.

Staff and service excellent. Help over 9 month period in organising weekend for 100+ superb. Food & service in restauraunt very good. Rooms (50+) fine with one or two small problems due to over winter refurb. Some of our group will be making individual bookings in the future to return to the hotel.

I stayed here with some friends on a coach trip and found the hotel to be really good. The staff were always very helpful and the waitress we were allocated was superb. My single room although small was comfortable and the bathroom had been refurbished recently. The food was excellent and there was a very good choice - they have an excellent chef!
