    Location and breakfast

    noise from outside, it was cold in the room

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The location was excellent for sea/promenade/shopping and restuarants. The staff were very friendly/excellent. Underground parking at hotel very useful. Beds were comfortable.

    The bathrooms require updating and the outside of the hotel a lick of paint!. Breakfast was good but cold buffet could have been more comprehensive. Bar was not well stocked with hot drinks - they had run out of hot chocolate!.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The hotel is in a perfect location and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast was self service and there was plenty to eat.

    There was no car parking available as advertised by Booked.net. The rooms were not soundproofed and there was a lot of noise from the street and you could hear other guests using the bathroom, shutting doors and walking past the door.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Ideal location reasonably priced, breakfast had excellent choice, restaurant staff attentive

    Desk staff got my booking arrangements wrong, could not access room after 1 day booked for 3 days, need to change or retrain reception staff

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Staff were polite although we tried to phone in advance with regards to parking and noone would answer the phone.clear explanations were given on procedures to breakfast.

    views from the window were great although during the night it was very noisy, drunken people were passing and a busker playing tom tom drums.the windows were the old fashioned sash windows so didnt prevent the noise from penetrating inside. I know this cannot be prevented but i think it should be mentioned considering you have to pay extra for these rooms.

  • Couple
    6.2

    Lovely big room.

    Couldn't control room temperature as was hot needed to open window - very noisy outside throughout the night

  • Single
    7.4

    I thought the location was magnificent. The staff were unfailingly polite & friendly.

    The hotel was tired & in need of some re-decoration. Hotel didn't seem to have my booking.

  • Single
    7.4

    You need to improve your system for Reception handling evening arrivals of people booked through Booked.net. The two staff involved when I turned up at 11.45 pm were friendly but it took them 10-15 minutes to register me due to computer confusions about the link between Booked.net and the hotel's own system. Not amusing when all i wanted to do was get to bed.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The welcome of the staff at breakfast was particularly nice.

  • Group of friends
    4.6

    The room was very shabby wallpaper peeling of the walls bathroom fittings loose room needing decorating looking very tired

  • Couple
    7.4

    We liked the staff the location the parking facilities the bar but were infuriated at not being able to check in until 3 attempts and finally getting our room at three pm

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Excellent location. Pleasant hotel providing all the basic amenities you require for a weekend break. Some of the previous reviews did worry me but it was generally a fine place to stay and provided us with everything we needed. Nice comfortable rooms. Pleasant bathroom with a really nice shower. Very polite and helpful staff. We got a fairly good price over a bank holiday so really we could have not expected anything better. You can't get a cheap deal and expect the Ritz...

    It is a little worn down and the bed cover and cushions (not the sheets) are in need of a good clean or replacing but the sheets and pillows were clean as was the bathroom so nothing too scary for the price we paid. The bathroom in the hotel lobby was disgusting...

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Very accessible to the seafront, walks, restaurants and shopping.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Everything went very smoothly, a room was available for early checkin, space in carpark etc. Hotel deliverd to all expectations

    Service was generally very good with the exception of the bar staff from whom we ordered afternoon tea - ill informed and completely disinterested in serving customers. If this had been my only experience of the hotel, I would not have returned
