We were not told previously on wotif that there was loud music until 3am in the morning and screaming people. We would not have stayed that night at the pier. We are retired and was not impressed

Where to begin....Balcony room with air-conditioning and Sea views....Had been promised air=con, turned out it was 2 pedestal fans on the floor...not bad when they said there were ceiling fans..?? No view because we were stuck behind a huge tree...and small window had a small balcony if u climbed out window...were told we were unable to use Balcony?? food was a bit ordinary 2...we were asked to change rooms 3 times in 2 days, to juggle other guests..1st room you could swing a cat round, and hit each wall...it also had a view of the back of Hotel, where cans , bottles, and old tyres were stored...

sorry i wrote it all on the wotif review as well..overall my step sons loved it /having free run in the community kitchen was a new thing for them!..our room had the best view over the harbour..it was a full moon too, the hotel is not modern but the friendly staff and relaxed family atmosphere made up for all the lack of 'slick'!!

Great location in centre of town right on waterfront. Nicely presented and renovated older pub with nice comfy rooms. Big well stocked communal kitchen. Would definitely stay again.

So close to the beach!

The hotel was clean and comfortable at a basic level. That was ok because we were taking care not to spent too much money. We sat in the Pelican Lounge and had a couple of drinks whilst watching the happenings on the beach and the jetty. Very nice.

Excellent budget accommodation

Pros: Everything
Cons: The Hotel under sells what it has to offer
Location: Lovely Town, Friendly people, beautiful water
When reading the Hotel info on Wotif i had assumed it would be a very basic room in an old Hotel but when i arrived i was very pleasantly surprised at the location overlooking the bay and how modern and neat this Hotel is. Our room was comfortable and nice with polished floorboards and older style EnSuite located in the original upstairs area. The Staff were great very friendly and accommodating and the quality of our meals Dinner and Breakfast "excellent".
