We stayed at the property about nine years ago and it was fabulous, time hasn’t been kind to the property as there are signs of neglect and decay.the room we had was with a balcony overlooking the Atrium,which was lovely,but it was like an echo chamber and you could hear everything,also there was very little ventilation in the room and it was like trying to sleep in a sauna,we did ask for another room( twice) but our request fell on deaf ears.the room itself was very good,nice size bed and bathroom.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Advertised as seaviews or balcony to atrium, my room had none of these. Window looked out to a wall with scaffolding and roof of a theatre. Wifi was very poor quality. Cooked breakfast was dried up black pudding rubbery sausage not very warm beans etc. Continental breakfast was poor aswell with little choice. Staff were not very helpful when asked about local transport for day trips etc. I could go on and on. Not worth 110 pounds per night. Went for breakfast 2 out of 4 mornings because it was that bad. Advertised as a 4 star spa hotel didn't even have its own bar and spa was closed. Official complaint going into BESTWESTERN about this.
