The hotel overall could do with a lot of up dating the bathrooms were in poor condition and the windows need double glazing as it let the cold in. I know we were on a special rate but it would not encourage me to come back their. The one redeeming feature were the staff they were extremely helpful polite and... More

The hotel is in the perfect location but it has to be one of the worse hotels i've ever stayed in! The bathrooms are falling apart, plaster falling off the walls in a lot of the areas in the hotel. I didn't even have a shower the next morning as I felt I would come out dirtier! Don't make the... More

Never again dirty and unclean. Stained carpets dirty wallpaper and peeling off walls. I paid £130 for one night disgraceful. The only reason this got 1 star was the location and view. Room 153 right opposite pier great views thou only twin beds and had booked for a double. This room is above a bar and was noisy and at... More

Booked here for work. The first few nights I had to share with my colleague (height of summer) & the room we had was truly, truly awful. Ripped curtains, cold, noisy, rusty bath, dirty,stained, I could go on. Then I was moved into a single occupancy by a stroke of luck. This room was so much better. In fact it... More

After reading some of the reviews on here I was really worried that this hotel would be awful, it is a bit run down and the staff weren't overly friendly but it was fine. Room was clean and everything worked. Great location right next to the pier

Ok so booked this without checking the reviews.... Then did before we arrived and was in a panic as to what we had let ourselves in for. So yes it is a bit jaded, yes a bit old, yes need the decor sorted. But..... As a family with three kids when we stay in general hotels or upmarket, we are... More

Awful claustrophobic rooms, dated appalling decor! Emailed the manager demanding a full refund, do not stay here! Staff were rude and not interested. The only good thing is the bang on central location! Needs a complete refurb... Such a shame!

This has got to be the worst hotel I have stayed in. At £125 a night for a single room it's daylight robbery. It's dirty and very tatty. There is paint peeling and damp patches everywhere. The lounge sofas are worn. Breakfast was abysmal. Shocking

This hotel is like a horror show. Plaster hanging off the ceiling, dirty carpets, grotty chairs, and that's just the common areas. The rooms are poor as well... The worst bit being discovering the filthy towel after I showered. It's beyond repair. Just knock it down and start again. Avoid!
