Loved the ambassador staff were lovely the pool was lovely the breakfast was again lovely the only two problems we had was the internet which was not fit for purpose and we had two rooms one had carpet and the other had cold plastic flooring which was such a shame because otherwise the room was lovely it wouldn't stop us staying again but for people who need the internet it would be a problem as we couldn't even get a mobile 4g signal

Perfect location for beach and walks with the biggest family room i have ever seen, good breakfast with good choice of hot and cold pleasant leisure area but swimming pool water was cold. Lovely lounge area with plenty seating inside and out with sea views over the bay. Only down side was needs a bit of updating but looks like it was ongoing. Over all a good stay weather was good and would stay again.

Hotel is ok, quite central to the town & seafront

Pros: The alternative room we were given was lovely and breakfast and the dining area was lovely.
Cons: Overall the pool and the rooms at the back of the hotel (room we were originally given and my children had) needs updating.
Location: Location of the hotel was good, it's not far from the centre and seafront.
Parking facilities are good When we arrived the room we first had was ok, a bit smelly, I don't know if it was the carpet. The lock on the door seemed faulty, we got locked in and my daughter staying in another room managed to contact reception for them to help. We were given an alternative room which was lovely, it was at the front of the hotel overlooking the sea, the view was beautiful and the room seemed to be much cleaner. Breakfast was lovely, it was a buffet breakfast, the variety was great, the food was first class. The pool was ok, needs updating. The hotel was ok. We had a drink in the bar last thing at night. We would probably stay here again.

Excellent and affordable

Location is very good (nice sea view with a walking distance to town centre). Friendly staff and generous breakfast. The only thing I didn't like is the size of the room; it is very small and the ceiling is very high. I think they can renovate it to be more comfortable and modernized
