Despite slightly tired décor, warm welcome and great gluten free breakfasts. Location on sea front great but a bit sad one has to pay for parking at £6 per night. Thanks for a good stay.

My wife and I have been regular users of your hotels. However we were not happy with our stay at your Exmouth hotel; 1. We do not agree with dogs allowed in ALL bedrooms/. People who take dogs on holiday are likely to allow them to sleep on their beds. 2. The carpet in our room was filthy with many ridges that were a tripping hazard. 3. No daily newspapers. 4. Parking charges £7.50 per day. You have a beautiful hotel in a superb location. Pity our holiday was spoilt for the above.

We have recently returned from another Self Drive holiday to Llandudno, staying at the Marine Hotel. We had the most wonderful time - Hotel was again clean and comfortable and was beautifully warm (which was needed). All staff are wonderfully friendly and welcoming and we could not fault this holiday - we always enjoy our stay and cannot wait to return.
