So stayed at the Norbreck last night, after reading what everyone was saying, I was a bit sceptical, but do you know what, if you take into account it's a 2 star hotel, then it's ok.
Yes there are things wrong, there is dirt in the bedrooms by the pipes that some tools off a hoover would clean up.
Yes there is only one lift in certain parts of the hotel. Yes the entertainment is very camp show.
But there are also some very good points.....
The staff I spoke to were all helpful and pleasant.
The food was good, plenty of choice, there was a long queue in the morning, but perhaps it would help if they set up a reservation system like they do for the evening meal.
The beds were comfy, with white bedding.
The main bathroom facilities were clean, with white towels.
The bar tariff was not that indifferent to a normal pub. The main smell I got was the chlorine off the swimming pool, which is situated in the centre of the hotel, close to the entertainment area, so therefore it can be smelt all over.
The hotel was very busy, but it's the time of year, overall I felt it was fine for a cheap 1 night stay, and I wouldn't have any problems recommending it, as long as the person knew it was a 2 star!
