I can cope with the 1987 style decor but what I can not excuse is the lazy cleaning and lack of general maintenance. Only to be booked as a last resort. For only a few pounds more stay at the Premier Inn.

I could see a bit of ocean from the window of my suite, which consisted of three rooms - a bedroom, a bathroom and a toilet, all very spacious. Since I figured out that I was in an isolated corner room I felt okay about doing some music practice in my room.The rest of the time I was out exploring...

The hotel is located near the beach and it is only one plus. I didn't liked my room. It was different from pictures we was provided. The room had really bad smell like someone dead over there. Bathroom was really dirty. Room was dirty as well. I got room above the bar it was really annoying. Staff of the hotel...

The hotel is in an excellent location, on the beach front There are kids rides across the road and mini golf just down the road Unfortunately we didn't have a sea view but some rooms did. The room was huge we had a suite. The negatives about the hotel is that it's tired, carpets aren't fitted right, wallpaper coming off...

This should not be advertised as a hotel, as it is more like a run down hostel. The place is falling apart with boarded up windows, and horrible beds. The food made myself ill was freezing cold and disgusting. By far the worse place that I have ever stayed at so grateful that I did not take the children. Most...

We've stayed here twice - mainly because of it's location and lovely views. Yes, it is shabby, dated, etc. but the bedlinen has always been spotless, towels changed daily. We take our own pillows as theirs are thin and hard. We were upgraded (as we'd stayed there a couple of years ago) and had a second floor corner room =...

More like a hostel than a hotel, room was horrible would never stay again, only 2 plug sockets worked and 1 of them was hanging off the wall, TV was useless as could only watch 2 channels, music from the pub next door was unbearable, avoid this hostel at all costs, the only positive I would give was checking out!!!...

Awful awful awful! The hotel and room is old, dated, unclean and quite frankly falling apart. The glass in our window was cracked, the plug sockets were coming away from the wall, the carpet hadn't been hoovered or cleaned as there were crumbs and bits all over the floor when we arrived. The carpet also didn't go all the way...
