This is such a comfortable hotel - located in a position that’s fairly unique overlooking the sea and beach. Lovely gardens, indoor pool and gym, spotless rooms and spacious public areas.

My Mum had a fall, and is ok now but the Service given by Andy and the Manager (sorry cant recall her name) was perfect. First class hotel I wish them well.

The views and garden are lovely and it was an enjoyable walk along the beach to town. The food and drinks were reasonably priced. My room was clean but tired and in need of some TLC. The very limited parking might be a problem during the summer season. We'd use it again as it was reasonably priced and we only used it as somewhere to sleep.

Beautiful seaside view from the room and nice size. Room was nice size and bed comfortable. Balcony could’ve hosted a nicer set of furniture- just one run down chair. No one mentioned that there would be no service of room throughout the stay. Apparently as a result of covid. Seemed a bit odd as this was April 2022 and all restrictions lifted for a few months. Not the end of the world but would’ve been nice to know and had tea and coffee refilled etc.
