Positive Reviews

Convenient location with scenic views.

The hotel is situated on the seafront and is just a short stroll away from many of the town's amenities and attractions including the beach which the guests found very handy. Those who wanted to venture further afield found in convenient having a bust stop right outside the hotel. Those who stayed in the rooms at the front of the building said that waking up to the stunning sea views was one of the highlights of their stay.

Good food and plenty of choice.

Guests who dined at the on-site restaurant were pleased to report that the dishes were well-prepared and full o f flavour. Many said that the menus were quite extensive and catered to various tastes and dietary requirements.

High level of customer service.

Many said that they were made to feel welcome and well-looked after for their entire stay due to the friendly and courteous manner of the staff. The reception personnel were described as being helpful often giving the guests valuable information with regards to the local area. Housekeeping and waiting staff were said to be equally amicable.

Negative Reviews

Service on the slow side.

Guests said that they often had to wait longer than expected to place their orders and at the on-site restaurant whilst others reported having to wait quite a while to receive their food.

Dated interiors.

The decor of the rooms was said to be in need of modernisation as guests noticed broken window panes, tatty-looking upholstery and furniture that was showing signs of wear and tear.

Plumbing issues.

Quite a few guests mentioned that on occasions there was no hot water which made it impossible for them to have a shower. Others mentioned that the water pressure was rather weak making showering cumbersome.
