        The man who greeted us on arrival was excellent, friendly and had a laugh with us. A very friendly hotel......

      • Group of friends

        Very friendly and helpful - arranged carparking, joined in the banter and made us feel very welcome. Great position near the front. Good bar and DJ with music to set the tone for the night out!

        Hotel needs a bit of a spruce-up, but everything worked OK.

        It was a very friendly hotel and would go back again

      • Family with children
        6.6

        The entertainment was excellent, with something for everyone. The staff were all very friendly.

        There was no mention of the 3% charge for any method of payment other than cash until check-in, which was inconvenient. The bedrooms could do with sprucing up (the tv in the single room was condemned; in the family room the shower door was broken, the beds were lumpy, some of the sheets were smelly and there was rubbish left in some of the drawers). The local car parking charge was £27 for 4 nights.

        I used this hotel due to working at the winter gardens for the weekend, very close to all that you need or want, staff are hospitable and very helpful.A great family stay.The manager Andy was extremley welcoming and accommadating and has excellent inter personal skills.

        The friendliness and location of the hotel

        Because we were on the ist floor facing main road, it was extremely noisy with the traffic and late night partiers. And the seagulls (not a lot anybody can do about them though). Saying that other members of our party that was located in other parts of the hotel did not have the same problem.

      • Group of friends

        As soon as you entre this hotel you are made to feel like a friend, the staff are simply brilliant, friendly and welcoming and accomadating, my weekend away went a bit pear shaped but the staff were always there to cheer me up I would def recommend a stay here

        I felt the owners of the hotel could do with investing a little bit more time and money to upgrade the decor of the rooms.

      • Couple
        9.6

        staff were all very warm, welcoming and could not wait to help, its a lovley quiet place, my fiance and i are not much for going out drinking so we sat in and played the darts and pool table, watching all the party goers heading down the street, its a beautiful wee place we will definetly be visiting again!

        apart from a hard mattress there was nothing to complain about.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Friendly staff on arrival, and throughout the stay. Nice breakfast and comfy bed.

        The lack of free VIP wristbands was disappointing and there wasn't any entertainment on during our stay as the hotel didn't have many guests at the time. Possibly the website needs to be updated to reflect entertainment not always guaranteed. Nothing too much in essence to complain about though.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        The staff was nice an friendly. Open all night.

        The room could maybe have been tidied during the stay.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        For a 2 star hotel we found the hotel to be clean comfortable and friendly. We liked the location as we were 5 mins walk to the beach/winter gardens/ tower etc. very basic room but comfy and clean. The owner was very pleasant and friendly, as were the staff.

        Can't really think of anything I didn't like about it. What you would expect from a 2 star hotel you got...no more......no complaints.

      • Group of friends

        Excellent location, very close to the Tower & winter gardens. Very friendly staff. Clean & very comfortable room.
