  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Great location right on the sea front, the lanes car park was right next to it as well so good for parking. Only criticism would be that there wasn’t any hot water from the taps not sure about the bath however.

It was the worst night's sleep ever, we must have been in a room over a disco, it's not the hotels fault but the people noise all through the night was unbearable, then the dustbin lorries started as our room is opposite the exit to another hotels rubbish exit.
