    Weekend break

    Location of hotel very good as within walking distance of the Beach, town centre, restaurants and shops. Room was clean and housekeeping available upon request through WhatsApp message. Room was for couple and was 2 single beds pushed together. Mattress hard and pillows quite flat therefore sleep was not that comfortable. Didn’t use the spa facilities however they was on offer with provisions in place. Pool and jacuzzi used during stay and available with a booking. Breakfast included in the price of the room and was tasty and plentiful.

    Disappointing - could be so much better.

    Check in and out took longer than needed. Key card not included so had to return to the desk. Parking was not free as advertised. Lot of queuing. Noisy hotel. Good location & was clean. Staff wearing gloves at breakfast & not changing them or washing hands was a concern.

    Pleasant hotel but didn’t feel like a 4 star hotel. Seemed to be a lack of staff around the place. The staff that were working seemed exhausted and looked like they needed a bit of help! (Not sure if COVID has affected staff levels). Our room was ok, but again not 4 star quality. There were a few bits of dirt on the floor when we first got there and it was a bit shabby in places, needed a bit of tlc. We did report this and received a drinks voucher. Parking was also a bit tight, we paid for 2 nights parking but struggled to get parked when returning one evening and was suggested by staff that we park in the town centre despite paying for onsite parking! Managed to squeeze in a spot in the end but one of the reasons we chose this hotel was because of parking! Great location and breakfast was nice!

    Clean room and hotel facilities, bed not comfortable. Toilet took several flushes to empty, reported to reception and was better after it was looked at. Food and drink very good, friendly and helpful staff.
