I recently spent Christmas as this hotel. through Just You holidays.
It was an extremely epensive mistake. Awful room tiny and dirty
allocated on arrival but changed, must sullenly next day. New room had good view but I had
paid a supplement for it when originally booking it! It was classed by the hotel to be "Deluxe",
not my opinion. Plenty of (self-service) food but not good quality. The
hotel put on a special lunch on christmas day, but on entering the dining room all I could
think of was Butlins! Heard many complaints after, apparently it lasted four hours - I did not stay.
Hotel was stated to have been re-furbished but could see nothing of this.
