I stayed here for 3 nights on a Newmarket coach tour. You must remember that the facilities etc were tailored to secure Newmarket's business.
This hotel is next to a derelict salt bath, has security gates and fencing and is in a remote location high above the town. It all adds up to a depressing outlook.
Staff - not very pleasant and only one managed a grin in 3 days - female was the worst. They need training in customer care.
Bedroom - spacious with a balcony looking towards the Bay and Vesuvius ( lovely) . Comfortable beds.
Bathroom - Although the decor was very dated it was clean with an excellent shower and large bath towels.
Food - breakfast was ok but the evening meals left a lot to be desired - on our last night we were served a chicken leg or breast and some 24 chips. The Germans had a more substantial meal. A case of you get what you pay for.
The staff had the audacity you leave a basket for "Staff Tips" on the breakfast buffet. I did not have a pen and paper handy or my tip would be "SMILE and be PLEASANT".
Nothing would entice me back here.
Our Tour manager and Driver were excellent.
