Positive Reviews

Great location

Whether you like to feel the sand between your toes or prefer green spaces, you’ll find both of those options are within steps of the hotel A short walk takes you to a great choice of shops and restaurants and many area attractions are within 15 to 20 miles of the hotel.

Good service

Despite some problems at this hotel, one thing that does seem to be consistent is the warm welcome and attentive service Guests describe the staff at this hotel as friendly and efficient They seem to really care about the hotel and will attempt to rectify any problems.

Comfortable rooms

Some guests do find fault with the décor and amenities, but the majority of reviews indicate that you will at least find the rooms are clean and comfortable There’s plenty of choice on the well-stocked hospitality tray and the beds are of a good standard.

Negative Reviews

Maintenance staff could try harder

Although the rooms are reasonably comfortable, there do appear to be some maintenance concerns Complaints include broken showers, gaffer tape used to seal window gaps and stained carpets.

Some noise issues

A number of guests remark that they were disturbed by noise from the road outside and also by other guests celebrating late into the evening The walls appear to be thin and the windows are not double glazed, so noise can reach an unacceptable level.

Mixed experiences in the restaurant

Reviews of the hotel restaurant are a mixed bag While some guests couldn't rate the dining highly enough, others felt it completely let down the hotel Issues included poor portion sizes and less than appetising presentation Afternoon tea seems like a safer bet.
