We stopped here for one night for a recent family get-together. It’s a friendly, comfortable little place - nothing special, but ideal for a short break. The room was small but clean and tidy, and everything worked as it was supposed to. Tea making facilities were provided. Breakfast included cereal, fruit and toast, as well as a traditional fry-up, which was well cooked.

Stayed: April 2018, travelled with family

The Downs is a small but lovely hotel. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the room had a balcony which overlooked the beautiful coast line. Also the breakfast was fantastic but the best bit was the hotel is dog friendly and my little pup had an amazing time!!!

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are worth getting if you can, as you wont be disappointed.

Stayed here over Easter and small family friendly hotel. Great breakfast and dog friendly. Lovely location opposite the waterfront and great views. Beds nice and comfortable and rooms spacious. Staff nice and friendly with local pubs and restaurants in walking distance. Five minute drive to the town centre.
