“Fantastic weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

This seafront hotel was perfect in every way. As a wheelchair user, it is so difficult to get a hotel which meets all your need, but the Horizon did it all. There is a ramp to the main entrance, a small lift to reception and a lift to help in and out of the bath. The hotel was spotlessly clean and comfortable, the staff were extremely friendly and the food was just fabulous. We quite often stay at the Southampton Hilton, but this hotel was even better.

Room Tip: A seaview room would be nice because you can see all the way across the water to Arran.

Great location right on sea front, easy walk to shops. Room was lovely with a sea view(had to pay extra for this but it was worth every penny). Food was excellent and staff were very helpful.

normally stay in the western house hotel for our trip to the races. the deal for this hotel was a good price. however you get what you pay for!!!!! staff very welcoming, cosy lounge area, lovely breakfast, but ........you seem to get the worst rooms ever when you use a promotional voucher such as groupon or itson. we were shown to the back of beyond in the hotel, the room was clearly for single occupancy although there was a double bed, you could not move around without banging into each other.during the night we had to switch off the electricity box which was in the wardrobe as the noise from it was deafening. these deals are clearly advertised to generate buisness, just a shame they dont aim for repeat buisness. back to western house next time. you get what you pay for!

Went on a voucher deal. Nice wee room and friendly reception/ check in. This was an exceptionally warm day and we found the room quite hot with no ventilation but, that aside, this was a very worthwhile deal. A word for the Vista restaurant..........excellent, good value meal with a risotto I'd describe as outstanding! No complaints. Visit recommended.

I booked this hotel to attend a wedding in February but unfortunately I wasn't able to go and re-arranged another date to take my friend. It was a lovely wee trip and the staff were very helpful. We forgot to claim our free glass of champagne and got it when we got back to the hotel. The bar maid was lovely and brought over our glasses and chatted.
Great breakfast too!
Our table lamp was not working but was sorted by the time we got back to the room!

Room Tip: Room 17 was a good twin room
