5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Worth a visit
Great location with the sea just feet away. Car parking a few yards away. Convenient for a walk along the seafront or a stroll into the town and it’s shops and restaurants.

The customer service was far from what we have received before when having stayed on several occasions previously.

Nice beachfront hotel
Lovely place to stay & being right on the front, easy access to the beach. It was also in the centre of town so easy access to other places to visit. We did eat in the restaurant which was nice food - only oddity was being asked to pay for our meal before it had been served. My other gripe is that despite having booked a table, we were given the worst table in the place. I was seated so close to the staff cleaning table that I couldn't move my chair or cut my food without touching the table. It was a real shame as it marred an otherwise enjoyable stay.

Liked: Cleanliness
nd bed comfortable. Breakfast only fair. but perhaps this was due to lack of staffing during covid.

Short break
Great position with a sea view. Lovely big room with table and two comfortable chairs. Breakfasts were very good but the selection was not great. No fruit or yogurt. Evening meal lovely.
