Posted 21-Jul-2017
Pros: Definitely the public areas, the quiet room was beautiful
Cons: The terrace needs a good clean as this is a popular place to relax
Location: Great location close to the beach , town, and resteraunt. couldn't be better for us
Enjoyed our stay, room bathroom could have been cleaner. Window dreadfully dirty. spoilt the view. Everything else was fantastic. Thank you

Basic room

Posted 18-Jul-2017
Pros: location
Cons: Probably give it a major refurbishment to bring it back into maybe even the 19 Century.
Basic room is in the basement without any window. The breakfast was poor with tea and coffee coming from a flask. You could pay more and go for a premier breakfast, but wasn't told at the time of booking. The corridor smelled of human waste,apparently its a ventilation problem. Well paste its sell by date as a first class hotel, wouldn't even give it 1 star, and would advise anybody thinking of booking there,to shop around and find some where else and save your well earned money.

Room with false window

Posted 16-Jul-2017
Very unhappy with room on arrival as was small n had a false window? We were told it was because we booked city rooms? It didnt explain when booking rooms with false windows. Complained and all 3 couples moved to rooms with windows. Then lifts were out of order 2 worked out of three then another broke then third making residents climb stairs some elderly for a day until fixed

Appalling underground room no windows.

Posted 13-Jul-2017
The room was underground with no windows and no ventilation. Room very basic. Bed appallingly uncomfortable. Only 2 pillows. Bathroom like a shoebox. Very noisy when the toilet flushed. Also other rooms you could hear a pump or something running. Very echoey in corridor outside the room. Could hear other people in their rooms. Walls must be very thin. Receptionist on checkout didn't even acknowledge the deposit of our keys that alone eye contact. Pictures all very good advertising hotel but what you actually get is more like an underground bunker from the ear. Will definitely not be returning.

Ideal Hotel For Town

Posted 06-Jul-2017
Pros: The friendly staff and the layout providing plenty of lounges to sit and read.
Cons: The lifts could be better.
Location: Located near the town and the tramway to the sea front.Plenty of walks nearby.
I found the hotel very handy for the beach or for walking around town. I will certainly book again.

Once was grand

Posted 06-Jul-2017
The hotel needs owners that will invest in the hotel to bring it back to the standard that will make it grand again.we had a mattress that was like sleeping on springs with no padding,this was changed at our request.the lobby was looked after but the rest of the place was disapointing worn carpets,rooms in need of apgrading,the staff where very helpful and pleasant.would we stay again.NO
