We have stayed in this hotel five years ago and an attempt has been made to refurbish the bedrooms and bathrooms. There is still work to do - the fridge door was loose together with the cupboard door housing the fridge was dropping off. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the public areas which are looking very tired and in need of some TLC..... On this occasion we stayed for 9 nights.
The problem which we experienced which prompts me to write this review is we came in one afternoon around 4pm to find very noisy work being carried out (the use of a hammer drill to go through brick walls!). We had returned to get away from the heat and have a rest!! We contacted the reception to ask about the noise to discover that the workmen were carrying out the installation of wiring for WIFI. We were told that the drilling would finish in a few minutes. It did. A few minutes later it resumed outside our bedroom door! I went to see what was happening and found two workmen drilling and nearly tripped over the supply wires of their appliances. They apologised. I then had a discussion with them in French to be told that they would have to drill through directly in front of our room. I did not think this was acceptable as we were on holiday and refurbishment work of this nature should be carried out during low season or when the hotel is closed.
As a result I negotiated with the workmen that they would return the following day to complete their drilling. Later on in the evening on the way to dinner, the receptionist confirmed that they were returning the following day between 12 noon and 4pm to complete the work, she implied that we should not be in the hotel during this time.
The hotel is in a convenient location for the railway station and bus station but we feel there hotels nearby that represent better value for money with a seafront location.
We would not stay here again.
