We absolutely love staying here. However, over the past year or so the cleanliness in the rooms is not so good. Stains on carpet. Also it is now dog friendly, which is great. We have a dog but he rarely comes away with us. Think there should be allocated dog friendly rooms, as not everyone likes the smell of dogs. The bar man and waitress work so so hard. There is definitely not enough staff, especially when the hotel was full, lots of people there.

So disappointed. Firstly why are you letting couples book in for a small double bed. My husband had to sleep on the floor for two nights. Our spare pillows didnt have covers on them either. Our shower screen was falling off the wall. The knobs were missing on the shower itself and rust coming down the wall. The extractor fan stayed on all night. The breakfast was awful. The food had been left out for hours so it was dry and overcooked. I had to request disabled parking on site and was not, at any point, told I would be charged for this until we checked out - £32 later. As we were checking out the staff didnt even ask how our stay was, which is when I would have brought up the issues, all they were worried about was paying for the parking. Staff were unhelpful in general (apart from the cleaning and maintenance staff) so we spoke to who were lovely but we couldnt afford the extra money to upgrade to another room. I hate to complain but it was just issue after issue during this stay and I can't get hold of the refund contact number.

Needs a good clean!
The bedroom needed a really good deep clean. The carpet was not clean and there were dog hairs. The toilet needs replacing.the bathroom floor needs bleaching. The area around the pool is green with algae on the concrete benches etc

Great central location .
Wow ! This hotel is convenient for everything. Lots of restaurants and coffee shops on the doorstep. Main town centre location and lovely walk through pretty gardens to the beach. Hotel staff really friendly and helpful. Room we had was twin executive and was a little cramped but okay for 3 nights .

nice and comfortable
pool was out of action. 4* in its day but could do with a refurb. Staff were not that informative with answers when queried. They seemed unsure. Comfortable, clean, right in the town centre. parking was easy but a bit pricey.
