Lovely pleasant stay
Great hotel . Check in very quick . Nice friendly reception lady Nicola took time to ask us about our journey and forthcoming plans . Room clean and bright . Super soft bed and equally soft pillows. Stayed I. Sea view room and certainly not disappointed. Bar very nice and relaxing . Didn’t eat in-the restaurant for evening meal as meeting family but breakfast lovey and reasonably priced . Definitely recommend a stay here .

Since I last stayed the refurbishment carried out has made the hotel more appealing and my bathroom was like new. Great to see the investment.
