This old hotel needs a revamp to update its tired decor. Needs to embrace its original features, not its corporate look which really does cheaped the look of a once proud building.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, food (both breakfast and evening meals) delicious. Our room was at the back unfortunately so quite dark but clean and comfortable, car park is quite small and tight but luckily we did get a spot and because of the great location of the hotel we could walk wherever we wanted to go. Would definitely go back.

From checking in to leaving the following day I can't thank the staff enough. My daughter and I booked the night away for her birthday, the hotel staff went above and beyond. From upgrading our room to a sea view, to the towels and banner decorating the room. Staff were so friendly, helping sort out a parking spot even though the parking lot was full. We would throughly recommend this hotel. Clean rooms, tidy hotel we loved it Thank you

Although the hotel is rather dated it is extremely clean. Due to the covid restrictions we could not have the room cleaned but whenever we asked for any top up supplies they were bought to us straight away. The staff here are wonderful they could not do enough for us this is the best customer service i have received in years they are a credit to the chaina creditt
