Closed hotel - no facilities
Pool closed. Bar closed. Restaurant closed. No breakfast. Room was dated. Wall lamps too low above pillows so kept bumping head. Bed uncomfy. Balcony crumbling. Scaffolding up everywhere. Noisy in the night. Did complain but wasn't receptionists fault. Eventually got partial refund.

Hotel to use but needs improvement
The hotel was hardly being used. Half the hotel was closed of with workmen banging all day. Was not given the option for breakfast or evening meal. The pool was like a bath and was clean. The balcony railings need painting as they was peeling. The view was good. The bedroom was good with door onto balcony.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Lovely staff. To no fault of the hotel, no food facilities open due to staff shortages re covid and Christmas. The hotel in general is very tired and rundown but everything was clean and tidy. Beds very uncomfortable.
