i went to this hotel this week and have arrived back a couple of days ago, and to be quite honest, while reading these reviews i was really not looking forward to this hotel at all as most if the reviews are bad. i don't know where to start really. first of all i must give the hotel some credit for the cleanliness of the bedrooms and hallways they were exceptionally clean and always tidy. however, the bar area and breakfast area wasn't as clean and the floor looked quite grubby like it hadnt been swept or mopped for a long time, but the breakfast was actually pleasant, it was rather basic though, bread and cereal was on the menu every morning and that was about it,but the fact that we could make a packed lunch for our outings was a nice idea and the hotel gave us lots of cartons of drinks for the week. the dinner was mostly alright. we had chips almost every night and the soup was literally just lots of water with stock cubes and about 100 teaspoons of salt in. the soup was watery and very salty but it didn't actually taste too bad. one night we had a curry which was actually very tasty. on the first night the manager came to speak to us and being 12-13 year old teenagers we was very excited because it was our first night and we was talking and didn't realise he was trying to talk to us, so he shouted really loud at us and told us we don't need to be so loud and i think that wasn't a good attitude to have to a large group of children who have payed to come on this trip and we are giving him custom, the waiters/waitresses were nice though, an could speak very good english. one time someone in our group rang the reception bell because they needed a member of staff so one lady came up and started shouting saying we can't ring the bell and told us off even though we needed a member of staff. it was such a disgraceful attitide! that night a boy was feeling restless and decided to have a lay down in the bar chairs then the same lady came along and literally dragged him out of the chair and told him to wake up and she handled him really roughly. overall i think the hotel was very clean but the rooms were too small and the showers were tiny and not even enough room to move about, there was balconys on some rooms and they were very stable and safe and looked nice. i think the hotel is suitable for a big group of school kids but not a family who are thinking of having a nice time. i recommend another hotel that is actually opposite aan zee and looks much nicer. so if you are looking for a luxurious hotel PLEASE DO NOT COME HERE YOU WILL BE DISSAPPONTED.
