    • Older travelers
      8.8

      Pleasant venue, excellent dinner, helpful staff and an excellent location for Eurotunnel travellers

    • Single
      10.0

      The twin bed room we stayed in was very spacious, and we could see the sea from the window! (I travelled with my daughter, so none of your questions re "solo/couple" apply.

      Whilst the shower was excellent, both of us had difficulty in climbing into, and out of the bath, and would much prefer just a shower cubicle,and no bath. I don't know if this is available, as I booked the room on the Intenet.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The staff were extremely helpful and we really enjoyed our time there.

      Parking is limited. The toilet rolls are behind the toilet - poor design (but not sure where you would put it otherwise) Did not realise that breakfast was not included in room price.

    • Single
      9.6

      the staff are the hotel's strongest asset - very friendly and very helpful. it has a good location and it feels a bit out of time which is a strength too

    • Family with children
      6.6

      it was close to the location I was visiting.

      Children weren't allowed in the bar so not very family friendly.

    • Single
      7.8

      Easy wifi access in the bedroom

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Excellent room - visiting family so did not use facilities.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Enjoyable weekend stay with minimum of fuss. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Location ideal. Will come again !

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      As we only stayed for one night it would be difficult, but overall I found the staff friendly and efficient and had a hassle free stay.

      Just two things, we found the rooms to be too hot and it was a shame that we could only order drinks from the mini bar instead of the main bar after midnight.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      The hotel is quaint, off the international tourist track but still well located.

      The mattress was very soft; a bit too soft for any person with back issues.

    • Single
      5.4

      Location was the main benefit; the hotels proximity to the Lees and main shopping area

      Lack of tea making facilities in the room; parking for guests; lack of reasonably priced breakfast.

    • Older travelers
      5.0

      It was near the sea and the staff were helpful and friendly.

      The hotel looks in need of a major facelift.

    • Older travelers
      5.4

      Good location

      The hotel is extremely tired and desperately needs updating

    • Group of friends
      5.8

      An acceptable hotel, a bit dated, but very good situated to infrastructure for travelers abroad

      a bit worn out

    • Couple
      4.2

      shabby decor, very dated, uneven floors, uncomfortable beds, feels like bedsits
