We went there for a short break with our dog. Lovely place, excellent location, really friendly and helpful staff. Our dog was constantly spoiled by them. Breakfast and dinner were good value too. We would definitely return.

Stayed for one night in the horizon hotel. We were allocated an attic room which was nice and spacious but very very hot. Maybe some air con or a fan should be put in that room. Only paid £100 for the night which included a very yummy and nicely presented breakfast. Location was excellent- we had a lovely sea view... More

The room was a lovely, clean attic... More

There is a lovely lounge area and the bar/ restaurant has sea views. Rooms were fine though ours was quite small. Breakfasts were good though for our early starts only... More
