We booked for dinner, there were three of us. The food was excellent, the service was also excellent and the price was very reasonable. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Horizon Hotel and will probably visit again early in the New Year

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent, lots of choices. Good location, within easy walking distance of shopping centre, bus and train station. Room was small, but comfortable. Shower was a bit of a challenge. I would certainly use this hotel again and recommend it for anyone looking for a moderate budget place to stay overnight.

Good value for money; good location on seafront; very helpful staff; excellent food at both breakfast and dinner; the only slight negative was bathroom a bit on the small side, and the room did not face the sea.
