Exceptional 10.0
A winning combination of service and style!
What an amazing find! My partner and I loved our stay here and the only negative was that we had only booked one night! The hospitality we received as it happened to be my partner's birthday was greatly appreciated, and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. There is even a free bottle of chilled cider in your room when you arrive and milk and cookies in the reception that you can help yourself to. Little touches like this made this a wonderful hotel and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Pretty decor and good location within walking distance of main shopping area, plus free car parking space :)

Very good 8.0
Great stay
Lovely hotel, close to town centre and sea front, however the breakfast inside area and breakfast options were a bit poor.

Excellent stay in every way.
Brilliant hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Within easy walking distance of everywhere you might want to go. Beautiful garden and pool. Generous breakfast, afternoon tea and cookies in evening. Room spacious and very comfortable. Spotlessly clean.

Good hotel
Very enjoyable. Slightly quirky place with a nice feel in a good area. Close to the beach and to "funk town".
