    Location and sea view

    Needs to be redecorated. Toilet was leaking. No shower. Breakfast was appaling - waited almost an hour. Was not asked if we enjoyed our stay and if everything was ok when checking out. Would not go there again but have to make point that you get what you pay for! It is almost tragic as it could be a lovely hotel

    My wife and i really enjoyed our stay at the hotel we had a large comfy room and would stay again if going that way

  • Older travelers

    The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome during our stay. The locality of the hotel was very good because it was in walking distance of the main high street and the hotel was extremely quiet so making best of both worlds. We was really shocked when our breakfast was delivered to ur room we really didn't expect that. Thankyou very much for such a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

    The only thing I would say is that our room was extremely hot and stuffy even with the window open . we did ask for a fan but you did not have any. that was the oly thing we could comment on negatively.

    the convenience of being on sea front

    when returning to hotel in the evening about eleven thirty the door was locked,the sign said to ring the bell which we did,no one came,it was not till we hammered on the door someone appeared. we were not told the door would be locked.

    On arrival we were given an upgrade which was an amazing suite!

    There could have been some shower gel and shampoo provided.

    It was one of the worst experiences I have had visiting a hotel.

    The bathroom had no complimentary shampoo or toothpaste, the wallpaper was peeling off, the plug socket was lose, the window was open and way too high to reach to close, there was no fire exit, the hotel smelt of must due to age, they advertise free wi fi but would not connect and staff would not give the password.

    Location - near sea front as requested

    A bus that was taking pesioners who were staying at the hotel was left outside my window ticking over it woke me at 7 30 and was ticking over for over 2 hours

    i rtheealise the hotel has been recently taken over so made allowances for the poor quality of the room it was dusty and needs a complete makeover which i am aware you are doing to bring it up to 2 star rating if this continue it will be a nice hotel to stay in the windows need double glazing and my bedroom window did not close properly so kept me awake a bit but am sure if work carried out it will be a good hotel i saw one of the makeover rooms and it was lovely i had a pleasant enough stay but no shower had to fill up bath with the shower spray as they would not come off the taps which was a nuisance but it was ok

    it just needs doing up thats all

    We visited family.

    Very small and requires updating.

    The staff were very friendly and helpfull, and the location of the hotel was perfect.The breakfast however provided us with many jokes for our friends. The menu stated we could have Bacon, Saussage, Eggs, Grilled tomato and the chefs special. so naturally we asked about the special and with an embarrased response we were tol;d it was beans! Beans were the gourmet chefs special! May I suggest not having a special advertised at breakfast and just declare beans are available? The breakfast was delicious though! On the whole the hotel is what we needed, somewhere to stay. we would possibly consider using it again.

    I rise early and attempted to have a bath at 5:30am and the water was only warm, my husband had a bath at 7:30 and it was perfectly hot.

    Very helpful staff. Special mention to breakfast staff and chef who were just starting to clear up at 9.26 (9.30 finish) when I belatedly got down for breakfast and couldn't have been more accommodating.

    Broken hairdryer and shower head problems. Lounge bar area very dated and worn

    Initially we were unable to get into our room - receptionist took ten minutes to get the room open - a handyman came up to apparently change a battery. When we went out and came back we had the same problem, and again in the morning when we went to breakfast and came back. Cleaner advised that it worries her as if there was a fire nobody would be able to enter the room to get us out. Poor H & S regs. Breakfast - this was uncooked and mainly consisted of runny tinned mushrooms - INEDIBLE. Crockery was dirty - coffee perculator which came out was filthy as was tea pot and plates. Milk for cereals was left out in open jug - not chilled etc. Awful breakfast. Room was so so but not clean - sheets were stained. All in all a very poor hotel!!!!
