DON'T EVEN CONSIDER IT So we got there, it is indeed near the seafront and a five minute walk from the pier. This is the only thing to be factual and good about the place. Three guys arrived just before us. No one was on the front desk. One girl asked the name on the booking, and after 10 minutes... More

On entering the hotel room we noticed used make up wipes and chewing gum stuck to the window, the window blinds were thick with dust, as was the floor and skirting boards. We noticed the... More

Please make sure you read the reviews, I made a big mistake and didn't and have ended up losing £75 as I couldn't even stay there! It was a last minute booking, just needed somewhere to crash after sons graduation and really shouldn't have bothered. First view was cracked window, gave it benefit of the doubt! given key to room... More
