Elaine & Mick Hitchener says:Just got back after a short break for a special birthday and found this hotel to be in a lovely quiet location but still close to the centre of town. had a family room which was very clean with an en-suite, tea/coffee in room and tv, what more could you ask for. the hosts and staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was the BEST we have ever had in any hotel or b&b, compliments to the chef. And the free tea or coffee in the sun lounge all day very welcome. Can't fault this hotel and would happily recomend to anyone. Thank you for making our stay fantastic.
Our Reply:Awww....we aim to please. Thanks Elaine and Mick

Paul Lewis says:Me and my partner emma stayed on 26th may for a two night break in a double sea view room, check in was at 2.30pm However we arrived at 12pm (so thought we would have a wait until the room was ready) as soon as we walked in we was greeted by a smiley face who quickly offered a tea or coffee. We had the coffee that was just perfect overlook the sea in the sun lounge. after about 5 minutes the owner came over and basicly told us the room was ready.
We took the lift (this was very handy) to the top floor and entered the room. It was very clean and fresh smelling with fresh bedding ect. Then we entered the en suite shower bathroom. the shower its self was slightly out dated But still did a good job and was hot, The bit i found most interesting was the toilet, because there was like a sachet on it that said ( Sanatised for your saftey) and the fact that it was sealed.
The bedding was clean and fresh and the bed was just right.
The Breakfast, Was quality, plentyfull and very filling with a wide selection to choose from.
The entertainment was just as good the kareoke was good fun with a wide range of songs.
We even took the dogs for a walk this was also very good.
And even on the last day when we (checked out) we left our luggage at the hotel and the staff called a taxi fore us.
there was a well stocked good priced bar available and free tea and coffee all day.
THE ONLY DOWN SIDE, was the weather it was just far far to hot but can hardly blame that on the hotel,
Other then that it was very very good can see why they got hotel of the year. Thanks to everyone for a lovely stay will recommend and will be back soon.
