Triple room, quite a tight fit for 3 people. Bar staff lovely, manager on reception not so good, couldn't handle things when there was a problem. Dining room lovely but we got stuffed in a corner next to a blazing fire , even though the rest of the restaurant was empty. At

Good Afternoon I am sorry to read you were unhappy with your room. The triple room is for 3 people with 3 single beds, if we had another room we would have moved you, but unfortunately the hotel was busy with the wedding. I believe Mrs Meikle dealt with your issues the morning of the wedding. Sometimes we do not realise that you are with the wedding party so we set breakfast up with room numbers, I'm sure if we had the space moving you would not have been an issue at all. All in all I hope you enjoyed the wedding. Kind Regards

This is a great hotel, spotlessly clean, all staff very friendly. It is situated right on the Esplanade with easy access to the beach. It is only a short walk to the town centre . Our room was bright and pleasant and we will certainly be back.

Been here before & always have enjoy our stay. I booked a Queen room but i don't think it's what we got. Room was small, down a long corridor so we had wifi issue. Was told it was because our room was wrong side of the router, make sure you pay extra for a decent room!

Hi Alison You are allowed in the rooms, lounge area but not the restaurant or bar area. If you would like to have breakfast or dinner then we can set a table up for you in the lounge area at reception. Kind Regards Tracey

Can I ask have you a ramp to get into your hotel ???
Yes the ramp is at the entrance in the hotel carpark. The carpark is very small but does have disabled spaces. There is a larger car park literally a dozen steps from the small one. Enjoy your stay. The staff and food is brilliant.

We are booked in for a wedding is there an iron and ironing board
Not sure if every room has one, ours did. Think you can request one from reception if not in the smaller rooms. Hope this helps

Hi how much extra is it for a sea view room thanks coming for two night stay
I actually requested a sea view but was given the smallest room with a pylon in front of the window. No explanation given. It was just for one night so I did not bother making a fuss as I was told the hotel was full. Hideous room, so small we could barely move. Staff were very good and location good. Will never go back and would recommend you have your requests responded to in writing before you pay.

Hi..we have stayed here on two occasions with our dog Suki. Room 10 is perfect as a door opens onto car park. No need to go through hotel. We love being across road from beach and are booked in again for April.
