Pleasant hotel and staff
This was my first time away on my own. The room allocated was comfortable with everything you need. However the shower was broken. Reception very helpful and provided another room. The furnishings in the room were a little dated and need updating. Buffet style breakfast was ok but i would prefer to be waited upon. The only concern I had was that there was no grabrail or alarm call in the shower room which from a health and safety aspect i thought important. I have made Reception aware of this on my departure. Hotel situated close to sea front and all ameanities.

Enjoyable stay!
We had an enjoyable stay. The bed was large and very comfortable. The room was a large family room. unfortunately no air conditioning and no mini fridge. Close to the beach and town centre.

A 5 night stay in a sea view suite.
The rooms in the suite are in a bad need of a total make over. The paint work is very tired, chip and worn. The table in the one room was a complete mess, the top of the table was badly marked and the side of the table top was damaged and a piece of wood missing. In various places the wall paper was either marked, scraped or damaged. Considering the amount charged for the stay I feel the hotel fell short of what I would have expected. The evening meals eaten in the restaurant were acceptable, the breakfast could have been better in way of the food being kept hotter. Overall I was disappointed with the hotel.
