Great hotel
We took a break to a near side seaside resort and we’re very pleasantly surprised. Car parking was on site and accessible Hotel staff were very welcoming. Room was fabulous by decor and design and very clean. Breakfast had great choice. We didn’t visit the leisure facilities but we’re available and no extra cost to us. Fabulous break away - we will return.

Some rooms too hot despite the fans in the room some chairs in need of replacement. Reception on checkout was not manned and no one about for fifteen minutes hence a queue when eventually arrived with no apology

Was down for the triathlon and I was allowed to keep my bike in the room and they let me book out a bit later than usual so I could get showered after the race.
