Reviewed July 30, 2014

Room was very spacious and clean but in need of updating.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
The location of the hotel is great as it is close to all local attractions and has a great position on the seafront.
OK for a last minute one night stay.

Stayed July 2014, traveled with friends

The hotel is in need of tlc and a new lift!Arrived on Sunday to be told that the lift wasn't working but was being seen to later,either that didn't happen or it could not be repaired!Room was small but adequate for the one night we stayed although it was very stuffy.

Stayed one night with my husband, paid £179 for a double room. Window didn't open which meant the room was an absolute sweat box. Overall room was grotty, old and definately not worth £179 per night. Lift wasn't working so had to walk up 4 flights of stairs, even if it did it's so old i'd be scared to ride it. Parking is first come first serve basis and is an extra £15. Rip off. Hotel is in need of a deep clean and desperately needs updating. Breakfast was average. There are cheap restaurants down the road that charge £4-5 for a cooked breakfast which i would recommend as an alternative as it's really not worth eating breakfast in the hotel. Sorry to say but if you are charging £179 per night the make some improvements to your hotel.

Never have I experienced such poor service and arrogance. We booked three rooms for one night (luckily only one night!). On our return back to the hotel from a lovely birthday meal out, the family room was infested by ants everywhere! Reception did not want to know and didn't seem to think there was a problem with this! Four children were meant to sleep in this room. All they could offer was a double room!! They refused to sort the ant infestation out and was left up to us to sort. Next morning the arrogant hotel manager who was too coward to face us just brushed it off!! Never would I recommend this place ever! Only people that should visit here is the health inspectors! Also needs a major update!

Room Tip: Don't!

My friend and I booked a night's stay in a twin room last Friday. We checked in and were given our keys and were told the room was on the first floor. The corridors were dingy and the floorboards were very squeaky.

When we did eventually find our room on first impression the interior was nice, especially the bathroom which was bright and clean but there was no air conditioning and the windows didn't open, although there was a sheet stating if you required a fan this was on request. Considering it was the hottest day of the year, on check in we should have been offered a fan, this is basic customer service.

We were given a room with a backstreet view and for a room costing £115 it would have been nice to have had something interesting to look at. Noise seemed to travel around the room, if it wasn't people walking in the corridors and doors slamming, we also had to endure someone strumming a guitar at stupid o clock! but saying this we slept well, although this may have been due to the fact we were exhausted with the heat.

When we were getting ready the next morning, housekeeping came round and they were told politely by my friend to come back later, checkout was 11.00 am, and it was 9.30 am! I couldn't fault the breakfast, the waitress was efficient and helpful, there was a good choice of food and the location was perfect, right on the seafront.
