Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness
Our room had not been cleaned properly. The old, used towels were still in the room and the bathroom bin was completely full. There was no light bulb in one of the bedside lights, nor did the landing light work. Breakfast was not consistant, day 1, 2 sausages, day 2, 1 sausage. The burnt side of the fried bread was hidden underneath. We did get a full refund for the first night and the staff were friendly, but i will not be staying there again,nor would I recommend it.

Too expensive for what was on offer.
This hotel was not in a particularly picturesque part of town although on the seafront. We hadn't booked a sea view so our view at the rear of the building was not really very nice at all. The building requires some maintenance and on the whole looked rather disappointing when we first arrived. The bar and dining room both need maintenance and redecoration and on the whole are quite depressing. Our room was clean but extremely basic, neither of the bedside lamps worked on our arrival, there were used shampoo and shower gel bottles left in the shower and a couple of bits of paper rubbish left under the bed.. Our room was not made up during the day which isn't the end of the world but clean cups and glasses are appreciated when you have no washing up facilities. Breakfast was adequate although several key components at the self service area had to be requested ie glasses for juice, spoons on the second day. We would have been happier with our stay if it had represented better value for money but was overpriced and the most disappointing hotel we stayed in during our 10 day road trip. Reviews are not reliable but I would recommend this hotel if it had cost considerably less than we paid. The people were very helpful and friendly and we had a complimentary drink at the bar so some positive points here.
