Lovely hotel in great location

Posted Jul 15, 2017
Pros: Every thing
Cons: some may say the hotel looks a little old fashioned, but this adds to its character and charm. Every comfort is here
Location: Beach and surfing are the main things.

Paying for the view

Location and view are great. Restaurant and public areas are nice. Sea view Room was spartan and tired. Minimal amenities for an upgraded room. Bathroom needs entire redo.

Could Don Better.....

The hotel sells the location and view very well. The location itself is lovely, a beautiful beach, however the hotel is misrepresented as a 4 star hotel and does not justify the price. The rooms are dated and shabby. The beds were uncomfortable, unless you like it rock hard. Breakfast was average at best. The staff however were very friendly and extremely helpful. Notwithstanding that, this is not a hotel that I would recommend or return too.

Lovely hotel, beautiful views of the sea.

Posted Apr 5, 2017
Hotel in a beautiful location. Sea view rooms have a fan view, at high tide sea is at the edge of the grass. Dining room Aldo has this fan view. Bar a bit disappointing as no sea view. Staff very friendly and spa treatments were very good. Will definitely go back.

Warm welcome in a warm hotel.

Posted Feb 20, 2017
Pros: Short but very relaxing stay in a solid hotel with great character.
Cons: Not much, keep the current standards, & check the wall sockets for security ( some loose in 163) Heating & water stat could be turned down a little ..
Location: Only here for one overnight stay, but fantastic location means long walks on the amazing beach are a given ...
Always wanted to stay here, and will definately be back. Apart from the obvious details (stunning location etc.) , this is a great place to stay because it has immense character and quirkiness. The floorboards squeak a bit and some of the furniture is dated, but all the essentials are there and the staff are extremely friendly and knowledegeable ... ask about the short-cut via the beach to the local pub! We were looking forward to dinner & breakfast in the dining room and it was better than expected - fantastic food & service ( I had fish for dinner & breakfast !) with real butter & marmelade (no annoying individual packets) ... it is the small details that make for a wonderful experience.
