The room was clean enough, very small plastic bathroom and not a great view (our room was overlooking a flat roof and the car park. I would say that the price you pay is for the location and not the hotel facilities, as the location is fantastic (5 mins walk to the beach, if that). Based just on the hotel, I'd say the room was worth about £40 for a night.
Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was awful! I have had many hotel breakfasts in my time, but the cooked breakfast was really terrible - rubbery scrambled eggs and mushrooms, baked beans that had been sitting there for hours, cold bacon...etc. Other than that, a few cereals and tinned fruit emptied into bowels. I asked for soya milk (due to allergies) and got told abruptly by a polish waiter that they had none. Then, afterwards, when complaining to the manager, he advised that they did in fact have soya milk - although he was not apologetic at all.
There is a "spa" onsite, which you have to pay an additional £2.50 per person, per day for. It includes a very basic indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and tiny sauna room. To sum up - wasn't overly impressed but not a hideous experience either! I would not recommend it as it was overpriced, but I suppose the location was good.
