      Good location and good value for money on a Saturday night. Good value for money for a Saturday night. Room clean and tidy.

      We didnt like the fact that you could help yourself to any door key when going out as you had to leave it behind.

      Reasonable location, not too far from everything free parking was a bonus

      The checkout on a sunday morning a bit too early as was breakfast would have been better to have breakfast avail till 10 and checkout till 11 or 11.30 breakfast was not enough I felt it was too small

      Clean bedroom with own clean bathroom. Decent location at good price.

      Tiny broom-closet-sized room with very thin walls (could hear neighbour snoring all night!). Very greasy breakfast.

      That breakfast was included

      The room was extremely small and felt clostraphobic

    • Couple

      The breakfast was better than expected

      The room had a number of parts that were tired and falling apart, most noticeably our curtain rail was already broken & it then fell down meaning we had a lighted room half the nigh . Also there was a lack of hot water.

    • Older travelers

      Extreemly friendly staff, especially in the restaurant for breakfast. Easy walking distance to the BIC. Clean. Tea and coffee making facilities.

      Rooms not well soundproofed. We booked the last available room. This room was close to the entrance to the hotel. We were disturbed by people returning to their rooms until 3:00 in the morning. Hotel car park fairly small and cramped. No remote control for the TV.

    • Older travelers

      Easy to find, Close to shops and restaurants, small walk to beach. Car parking at hotel.

      Un-manned reception, decor drab, Bedding clean but old, worn and unironed. towels well worn. No toiletries in en-suite. Furniture very basic, ill-fitting carpets. En-suite in need of attention. This room was better than the one we were originally allocated. Food, like everything else, very basic limited choice.

      I found that the customer service was lacking though the staff were not rude they were not friendly either.

      Had a double bed even though it was a single, location and staff good

      One room had no water had to report it to owners

      Some of the hotel has undergone a recent renovation and the entrance area was very welcoming and pleasant.

      Although some areas of the hotel have been renovated, other areas were very tired and outdated. Our room had clearly been re-decorated but the furniture was shabby and the level of cleanliness on arrival was poor, with a layer of dust around the room and mould in the shower. The room was much smaller than anticipated and the en-suite was tiny. We did not realise that the hotel specialised in hen and stag groups and had we done so we would not have booked to stay there. There was a lot of noise in the early hours of Sunday morning and the conversations around us at breakfast, (although not intended for our ears), were loud and inappropriate. The hotel advertised evening meals but it turned out that this was not all of the time - although the manageress kindly told us on Saturday morning that they would provide a meal in the evening, we had made other arrangements by then.

      This Hotel is very good value in a very good location and has almost finished its refurb.

      Having to ring the door bell to get in on arrival, no one on reception. Just felt a bit unwelcoming but no big deal.

      Location and being so close to beach and shops

      Thought breakfast was a little dissapointing and there wea a noisy 'stag party' staying.
