We stayed Sunday 27th December as we love the Ocean Bay Restuarant on the seafront. It appeared the hotel had been closed over the Christmas period, we arrived at 1.00p.m. the hotel was absoluteley freezing as was our small basic double room with equally small bathroom. No heating was on we were told it was on a timer. The heating actually came on at 2.30p.m. - until the room warmed up I actually got into bed to keep warm! The heating stayed on and then went off again about 10.30p.m. It came on again at some point in the morning but was switched off by the time we left at 10.30 a.m. However the radiators in the public areas downstairs appeared to be on. The plus side was the room was clean, the building is an attractive old building and the breakfast was good. I wouldn't recommend staying here in the winter.
