We've stayed here numerous times over the years mainly due to the view. The city lights at night are beautiful.
We travel with two adults and two children so get a family room in the "standard" room block. The bedding is a double plus two singles all in one room (we had room 17). Since our last stay a couple of years ago there are new beds (well overdue) and new bedlinen but the rest of the room is old and tired with somw minor damage to cabinet fronts. The tv is perfectly fine and there is a small selection f drinks & snacks available for purchase.
The balcony railing outside is very rickety with missing bolts where it should be attached to the balcony.
The room is spotless and perfectly adequate for our family. The indoor pool and spa (with towels supplied) is a favourite with the kids and only a few steps away from the room.
We had breakfast here this morning and to be honest were disappointed at the quality for the price.
As commented on by others the derelict hospital next door is an eyesore but that is hardly the fault of the hotel owners.
We will stay again.
