Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel could do with a renovation but the staff and location are first rate. Rooms spacious and bathroom spotless. Treated to a seaview which was amazing. Pillows could do with upgrading. Bar and food prices reasonable. Breakfast good. Car park a little tight, glad I drive a mini!

This is a beautiful Victorian building and hasn't lost its charm. Having read some of the comments saying a little TLC was needed I did wonder how old the lovely photos were but there was no need to worry. We had a superior sea view room which was huge, clean, and had a lovely bathroom which was spotless. The bed...

Stayed here two weeks ago and then again this past week. Didn't hesitate to rebook this hotel. Had a fabulously large room with a sea view. Breakfast was lovely and the bacon served here was some of the tastiest I've ever had. All in all fabulous value for money, will definitely be back.

Mr. Chris Gilpin, the general manager seems unreachable. I did not sleep one night as there was an intermittent tapping sound in my room until after 4am. I suffer from Chronic Fatigue and have just spent a week in bed after loosing a nights sleep and rest. I spoke to the night duty manager the next evening and was told...

Had a fantastic time at our buffet lunch for mum's 90th birthday. Nothing too much trouble for our hostess/waitress, food excellent and plenty to go round, we were not worried it would run out. The intrepid room is a lovely sunny room and it was spotless. Reception staff very helpful and all round a very good experience.

I have had parties, lunches and dinners in this Hotel and my textile group meet in this lovely venue. We recently had our first workshop in one of the beautiful function rooms. The food is consistently very, very good The staff are unfailingly helpful, cheerful and cannot do enough to create a successful event.
