Dated but pleasant

Greeted by friendly and helpful staff.

Large car park and nice clean, bright lobby and bar area with lots of seating. Room wasn't quite ready on arrival so had to wait 20 minutes before getting key. Room was HUGE with some lovely period features. Decor, furniture and bathroom dated but perfectly usable and adequate for our one night stay. Leisure area and swimming pool areas very tatty but again usable. One particular Leisure area member of staff was extremely nice, very friendly and chatty and took time to show us the facilities. Definitely need to use the sauna after the pool to warm up as the water was freezing!!. Great nights sleep on very comfortable beds. Excellent hot and cold buffet breakfast with plenty of choice - hot items were constantly being replenished. We booked in advance and for the £44.10 we paid for 2 adults and 1 child it was amazingly good value and would definitely recommend for a budget night away.

Has potential!

Friendly, helpful staff.

Reception and bar area were spacious, clean and comfortable. The room was fine. It was clean, warm, the bed was quite comfy and the shower worked. It was just a bit shabby and in need of some modernisation but I think from the reviews we read before we booked this is on-going. We tried the pool - it was freezing. Lots of families in there enjoying a splash about though. Breakfast had potential but it was just ok rather than lovely, just needed a little more attention to detail.

Cheap hotel.

Needs a refurbishment, but the room was excellent. Large and comfortable. Staff were friendly and everything went off without a hitch.

lovely stay

The room we stayed in (381) was very spacious and very comfortable in fact when we saw it we wished we had booked for 2 nights instead of the one.

The staff were very friendly.

We will definitely stay here again.

Perfect for a winter break by the beach.

We stayed here for 3 nights with a couple of friends, my Daughter and 2 small dogs.

It was lovely, very handy for the beach and a short walk to town. The hotel is dated but clean and the staff very helpful. We chose this hotels because they allow us to bring our little poodle.Hotels that allow dogs are few and far between, especially when some one leaves their dog in the room all day.(206), it puts hotel owners off. I can recommend this hotel for a cheap winter stay.The only food we had was breakfast and that was OK. Thank you to all for a very nice weekend.
