Not sure where to start with this one, it most certainly is not a four or five star hotel. It is more like staying in a run down college dorm, my recommendation would be boarding up like its sister building next door appears to be - or bring out the wrecking ball. Based on highly misleading pictures I booked in here over new year for over $200 a night. Firstly My room was a small box looking out over trash in central courtyard, and a fan is NOT air-conditioning. When your room is 26C and it is only 18C outside that makes for much misery. Breakfast I was told was excellent but was intact terrible - wonder bread, stale pastries and watery eggs so I chose to eat elsewhere it was so bad. The exits to the beach-side are all closed up, and the staff have a really bad attitude. Bar and restaurant were shut New Year's Eve so no options, especially as all of town is private party which is ridiculous. Moved room 2-3 times before I got an exterior one where I could at least open the window and... More

Stopped here for 3/4 days late January (BA summer season). Picked this hotel (a reasonable looking; b) close to beach. I perhaps didn't do my homework enough on this. The hotel was very dated and required renovation big time; tatty stair carpets from reception up to corridors and rooms. Wallpaper had graffiti scrubbed off/painted out. The rooms were a throw back to 1960s, with décor and furniture to match. But I must emphasise; they were absolutely CLEAN ALL THE TIME. Wifi although free, tended to be hit and miss. Although it didn't suit us; the hotel location was right handy for all amenities; eating, shops, amusements, Bristol beach, the Casino etc. At night the road was closed and was turned into a 'peatonal' as street entertainers, chairs/tables, stalls set out their wares until 3 am! We know at our cost as we had a front room overlooking the lot! The breakfast was a buffet kind; and the choice a bit limited; no hot items served. Staff very nice though and can't be faulted. I...
