Arrived at 2.15 and room wasn't ready, which was a little disappointing, so we went for a nice stroll along the beach/ pier to while away some time. Came back about 3.15 and room was allocated room 169, have to say was really disappointed, the room had stains above the left hand side of the bed on the wallpaper,overall looked tired and in need of a complete re decoration, sea view, well to be honest if you could see out of the windows would have been fine, but sadly it didn't look like the had been cleaned for quite some time, that and a mixture of condensation, you couldn't open the windows either as they had appeared to be bolted. We asked for our room to be changed and we were given room 164 , which was far nicer.. Clean spacious and comfortable, although again way too hot, I appreciate you can't please everyone, but it was way too hot. The staff were very friendly, we had some lunch in the bar area, thought 2.50 for a fruit juice was a little costly however the food was delicious.. Overall, probably wouldn't return, unless I knew it had been refurbished although I wouldn't say it was the worst hotel either not bad for the price I guess.. Which was £67 per night, wit breakfast.
