Bay hotel
Booked in for a sea view, was put in the back of the hotel with no view, cost us money to get transferred to a sea view the following day. The sea view room was lovely but was disappointing on our arrival with the upheaval.

Deluxe double room but no nice view
Booked 2 night stay between Xmas & new year. Staff were very helpful & friendly. Double deluxe room was nice but we had a view to rear car park. Could only see family rooms on opposite side of corridor which have the fab view. Good shower. Ate in restaurant first night. Lovely hot freshly cooked food. Booked breakfast slot to watch daylight coming in over the water. Beautiful! Breakfasts were excellent. Definitely stay again.

Beautiful location, fits any need
Some things looked a little worn, or could use a refreshening look, but it wasn't displeasing and is understandably very busy as it is linked with the caravan site behind the hotel. We were there midweek during term time and it was so quiet and lovely. Service was kind and friendly by every person working there! One mattress was ok, but the other was very poor being worn thin and feeling the springs - even my husband noticed it though he wouldn't usually, but he didn't want to say anything as we enjoyed everything else so much. The storage space in the room was great as we stayed for a few days, with daily room service and hot drink/biscuit supplies.
