The hotel certainly has kern appeal, with stunning views and a beautiful reception area. After that the only thin that was half way decent was the view.
The room, titled as a 'club sea view' lived up to it's promise of having a stunning sea view. Beyond that, the bed and the beddin led a lot to be desired. Tired would be one way of describing it. The shower head was covered in mould and the extractor sounded like a 1980s Bedford van.
We didn't eat in the hotel so are unable to comment on the restaurant food. However, breakfast? Wow (and not in a good way). I asked for a poached egg on wholemeal toast. I got a pickled poached egg on White toast. Nothing ruins a day like a a poached egg tasting like malt vinegar.
I guess the highlight was the taxi driver asking if we were a little young to stay there and he'd have been right.
The hotel clearly caters for a certain age groups... Over 50s.
