Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff were superb! The location opposite the beach is ideal for families and for those who enjoy a walk on the sandy North Sea beach. Breakfast was very well presented and hearty. The rooms are nicely appointed too.

Due to unforeseen illness (evidence provided to the hotel of hospital records), we didn’t stay. Tried to call the hotel - no answer. Contacted them via Expedia, they read the message but didn’t reply. Contacted them via Expedia live chat who requested a refund or to be able to pick a different date. Even Expedia tried to ring them while I was on live chat, couldn’t get through so had to email. Hotel refused both a refund or alternative date. Not even a goodwill gesture or voucher ! They have had £102 for nothing and despite being shown evidence of a hospital stay, were not accommodating in the slightest. Won’t be using them or Expedia again.

It’s getting a little older and in some places could do with a spruce up. But overall I was pleasantly surprised especially with the cleanliness and most certainly the extremely friendly staff. Had a huge room with a pleasant surprise of side view of the sea so was very happy 😀

The duvet on the bed was so thin I needed the heating on all night. However there was adjustable central heating and a free standing electric radiator. But what a waste of power when a thicker duvet would suffice
