The Staff were brilliant, we stayed in room 449 and it was chilly in the bedroom and bathroom even with the air conditioning on to heat the room up (probably due to it being at the end of the property) perhaps a heated towel rail in the bathroom could solve the problem and a blanket would be nice for the bed, there is plenty of hot water, we went by rail and used the bus service into the town center, breakfast was fine and we would stay here again, the staff make this hotel great.

It was close to several good restaurants. However, the breakfast was the same each day.

Room was spacious and very clean, breakfast was included in price, plenty of choice, but be aware you might not get a table at peak times. Parking is available and the Ocean Terminal, with shops, restaurants, coffee shops and the Vue cinema is just across the road.
