Not sure where to start. Booked into rooms with my family for a wedding we attended at the hotel. Recently refurbished, apparently. We were met with damp and peeling walls and were put in a dark and dank part of the hotel. However, I was offered alternative rooms when I complained, which were bigger but remained in a condition which did not reflect newly refurbished as suggested. The public parts of the hotel are conducive with 4* but unfortunately this was not so for the rooms. Quite why the hotel group chose to refurbish rooms in a part of the hotel in which you could not secure a sea view is beyond me. I would have thought you could sell rooms at a better price which had recently been refurbished and had a fantastic sea view? That all said, the breakfast was very good and offered a good selection. In short, this hotel is tired and painting over the cracks is not going to solve a more fundamental problem that obviously exists with its fabric. I wouldn't say don't stay here but don't expect four star quality rooms.
