3/5 Okay

Decent location, for the most part great staff! The beach and promenade are just out the front door. However, parking was difficult to find, we ended up parking in a city parking lot about a 1/4 mile away. The room was fine, although the bathroom was in a rough state - flooring needs immediate replacement, very tiny sink, and an aging shower. The restaurant is ok, although slightly overpriced. Can't recommend the vegan burger or breakfast sausages though, however the full English was good.

Dont use this place
The room we stayed in number 1 was not fit for purpose. We paid £240 for 3 nights and were more than disappointed . We wrote a list of problems and gave it to staff. We asked to be contacted by manager twice but noone contacted us. I have paid less for premier in and its been clean and accomodating. This room is in very desperate need of repair and decor. I have several photos. The shower we had to hold in our hand once we managed to squeeze in it as the door didnt open fully as the tap stoped that. The pole that is supposed to hold shower head wouldnt tighten to hold it so therefor you have to hold it whilst trying to apply shower gel to your flannel with 1 hand. There was a step to get in shower which wasnt wide enough for a step so It was a trip hazzard. The small sink was above the back of the toilet that was leant to one side so you could squeeze above it to clean your teeth. It stank of drains. It wasn't possible to close bathroom door whilst sat on toilet because there was no room. There was no mirror on wall for my husband to shave in. The bedroom had a box with a rail with i presume was a wardrobe without doors. The wallpaper was speckled with god knows what and hanging off in places. There was no hand gel in the dispenser which is very important at these covid 19 times. No tea and coffe facilities in room. The light on cieling was hanging off. The wall lights above bed were also hanging off. Theres loads more but not enough text left.
