The hotel has a great location and has always been a great hotel with high quality. However since Marriott released ownership, the standards have slipped considerably and the attention to detail has vanished! The rooms are feeling really worn, dated and neglected, marks on the walls, dirty chairs, worn carpets, broken grout on the bathroom floor the list goes on. My room in particular smelt heavily of smoke, with cigerette ends in the window sills, the carpet was stained with ash and burns, the door to the bathroom was damaged and the shower was terrible! There was no power in it at all, the water was more of a trickle. On the whole a very disappointing stay in a hotel with such amazing sea front potential which I know can be better due to previous experience.

It was the first day following Lockdown number 2 and the staff were understandably a bit nervous but at no time did it show and any enquiry was met with extreme professionalism.
