    The room was very disappointing, we had a brick wall as a view, also we could not shut the window which was next to the outside air conditioning unit. We did asked to be moved but there were no other rooms available.

    We booked a room which was advertised as a having a sea view. It did have a sea view but to access the balcony to see the whole sea view we we supposed to climb through a window!! At no time were we advised that access to the balcony and hence the sea view would mean trying to climb in/out of a window. My wife is disabled so this meant that we could only appreciate the view from our room which made it a 'limited sea view'. This access problem was a big disappointment to us and I would suggest that having to climb through a window is a health and safety issue!! I would suggest that when you advertise a room as having a sea view you should point out the means of access may be via a window!! Not impressed!

    We were visiting the hotel to attend a funeral of a friend and found the staff very helpful with directions etc. We were travelling for the first time by train (for a long journey) the discription of where the hotel was was excellent just across the road to the station. We were impressed by this hotel and would stay there again hopefully under different circumstances. Thank You Denise Mitchell

    The bar is a lovely place to sit and look out at the views very relaxing

    How ever the bar staff are very slow and leave you waiting for thirty mins for a drink etc

    Location Easy to find Easy to park friendliness of staff

    I'm 6'3" tall & single bed was small a suggestion would be for staff, subject to aavailabilkity, to offer upgrade at reception for small extra cost

    Lovely location, right on the water front. Attentive, friendly staff. Beautiful decor in the reception, bar area. We enjoyed a delicious and very generously sized burger in the bar area, for just £9.95 each, with complimentary homemade soup to start and ice cream/sorbet to finish-bargain! Enjoyed the pool, sauna and jacuzzi-though could maybe do with tidying decor and really does need new changing facilities. Bar was open 24/7 with live music the night we stayed. Our room was nice enough and bed was very soft and comfortable. Would recommend this hotel but do think our room could've been cheaper.

    Our room was nice, it was standard inland view, but we were little shocked that view was of a wall! Room lacked natural light unfortunately-ok for our one night stay as we weren't in the room much. Also our bin hadn't been emptied-though was only paper rubbish! Would recommend this hotel, but do think our room could've been a bit cheaper!

    We were not informed that the indoor pool would be out of use. Very disappointed as this was one of the reasons we booked this hotel.
