A pleasant hotel with helpful staff and parking
We got good value at this hotel and there was parking, unlike at the vast new hotel being built on the seafront! We were there on business so appreciated the good internet, well kept room and corridors and good bathroom with everything we needed.

ovely short break
Staff extremely helpful and friendly, rooms basic but spotlessly clean and useable, television very small, but again perfectly watchable and serves purpose. Good position, close to beach and town with sea views. Breakfast, buffet style and very good. Altogether a lovely few days away 😊would stay again

Friend staff at the Time Warp Hotel
The hotel staff were really nice and friendly. The breakfast is amazing, apart from the batch of tomatoes they had whilst we stayed. The hotel is in a drastic need of refurbishment or at least redecoration, it's a like bit stuck in the 70s/80s
