10/10 Exceptional

Ellie and the staff were so helpful and made us feel really welcome. The room we had was cheerful clean and spacious. (could have done with a double wardrobe rather than the one they had in there) the breakfast was delicious and plenty of choice. Its less than 5 mins from sea so in a good position. Well done all. We shall definitely pay another visit when the weather improves. Trish Jones

Lovely holiday
Lovely hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Huge portions In restaurant and very tasty food. Finding a parking space can be tricky but free parking tokens issued if off site. Very close to sea front. Would definitely revisit

The hotel is in a wonderful location close to the beach. It is walking distance to Dday museum and king Henry V111 castle. The food at the restaurant was spectacular and the staff was extremely helpful and kind

Lovely hotel
Extremely clean and particularly lovely carpets! Shower was great. While styled in a great way, the room lacked simple things like table space, a plug socket near to the mirror, and a fan to help cope with the heat. If I stayed again I would request a non-ground floor room.

Very narrow on street parking with hotel supplied permit. No room to park near hotel , so had to park three streets away and carry bags.

Comfortable room but noisy toilet
Large, warm twin room. Comfortable beds. Superb breakfast with lovely service across the road in main hotel. Good location, close to theatre and seafront. Separate toilet in tiny cabin room. From 1am, could not stop it filling & unable to reduce the noise as door very loud to open/shut. Receptionist pleasant but defensive. Kept reiterating we should have called night porter to investigate. Did not know there was one and as, pensioners,1am was far too late. No offer to compensate for disturbed night. A shame.
