Recent guest reviews
A quick overnight stopover to attend a business meeting the following day nearby. The outside looks awful and could be easily remedied with a facelift. Each side of the entrance was a pillar where smokers had left cigarette ends and empty packets (no bin in sight) so not a great first impression. The reception area and bar was nice enough. The room was clean and comfortable. I had a lovely swim in the pool and a sauna and jacuzzi. We ordered from the bar in the evening - and the food was nice with generous portions. We chose this hotel as it was dog friendly and we felt that overall it was a good choice.
The hotel looks incredibly tired from the outside, but didn't let that put you off. We had a fabulous few days as part of a dancing group. Could not fault the hotel, staff, food or cleanliness, in any way 5*****'s. We have already booked to come back
Stayed last Saturday for one night. It looks a bit like a prison from the outside. Our room I think had been recently decorated it was quite pleasant. Throughout the night it was so noisy, soundproofing must be non existent and the room was very stuffy. Breakfast was very good. Cereals, cooked breakfast, toast etc.
Arrived early and couldn’t check in till 1.30 but that’s fair enough as rooms had all been used the night before. The rest of my family arrived and we were checked in a little bit earlier. The rooms were sufficient and spacious, with a great view, although could do with a fresh lick of paint and some tlc. Housekeeping staff were amazing at turning your room around each day. Shower pressure and temperature wasn’t so great. Breakfast was tasty each morning, option for full and/or continental. Lunch menu was all you needed, with light bites and sandwiches. Spa facilities were great and well maintained, guests have the use of them as and when between 9am and 9pm. Would deffo stay again, staff friendly and accommodating nothing too much the bother for them.
Warm reception greeting. Think I booked a double bed but got a twin. Room was a little confusing as couldn’t work out the lights which were illogical. Hard bed, nasty pillows and lifeless duvet. Clean carpet but bad stains. Cigarette burn by plug hole in bathtub! No aircon. No trouser press. Nice towels. Good breakfast. £54 not bad though. May try somewhere else on next visit.
Stayed here many times but returned yesterday for a family funeral. We had a sea view room which was very adequate, clean, comfy bed, nice bathroom etc. The hotel is worn from the outside but inside very nice. Lovely bar and food to a good standard. The only problem we had was the WiFi connection in the room we had. Otherwise great value for money,
Spent two nights here in November and had a good couple of days. Reception were very helpful when we asked to change rooms due to a noisy fan on the roof outside our room. Breakfast was good and I would just like to mention the fact that the car park has been completely resurfaced and marked, what a difference!
This review is based purely on a phone call I made regarding accessible rooms. The receptionist didn't know what I meant when I enquired if they had any! After I explained my husband has mobility problems but can walk a little and needs a walk in shower and toilet rails she told me they have just one room which is a long walk from reception down several corridors . I said this was a strange place to put a disabled room but she replied that as most people use wheelchairs it wasn't a problem!! I gave up at that point and said I wouldn't bother! Come on Great Western you can do better than that.
On arriving, like others have said, the hotel isn't good. Old and tired. Inside was a real surprise. Nicely decorated, really friendly staff and food and drink at good prices. The hotels position to the beach is great and due to the time of the year, our 2 dogs could go on the beach and also allowed in the hotel. Food was very good and the breakfast at £11 each was a little expensive, but was very good.
Feeling unwell pre Christmas booked a break for early new year. Delightful stay, swimming pool, sauna and hot tub ensured some gentle leisure, while the room offered glorious sea views, plus great size tv. Food was excellent, service top notch, already booked next trip
