Spent 2 nights here for a quick weeked getaway following Hilton Hotels half price weekend offer. Platinum room with breakfast for £67 rather than £135. Due to snow flight diverted and so we arrived around 10pm rather than 7.30pm to fiund that the 4 start hotel had basically closed down for the night. The bar did offer food in a less than inviting area and 2 salads with 2 sodas was £23, to be fair the food was good but £10 for a lot of lettuce leaves was a little OTT. The biggest issue was that on arrival on a freezing cold night the room heating was not on. It was freezing cold and we sat in the room with our coats on till the tiny electric heater started to warm the room up. The bar was no better and we both kept our coats on when eating.
The room itself was nice and a good size, the kettle was missing and when we asked for another it took 30 mins to get one. In that time I had also visited recepotion to get hotwater and complain that we were still waiting.
Next day had breakfast which was superb and found that the hotrel was right next to the beach. Lots of snow overnight so a winter wonderland view.
Did have to laugh at the welcome letter from the area manager which recommended us to the spa. When I booked I did so before checking on spa availability and having booked and paid discovered that 3 weeks in advance you could not get any treatments as there is just one member of staff and she was fully booked. When we got there tried to have look only to find that it was locked up at 3pm on a Saturday.
Spent the day at the Marcliffe Spa where would would have stayed had Hilton not had such an attractive deal.
Sunday's breakfast was not up tot he same standard as Saturday but good none the less.
Hotel made no effort to grit or clear paths and as a result entrance was sheet ce and dangerous. Taxis had a hard time getting in and out as did we when walking.
Overall a nice hotel in good location but seriously over priced at full rate and never in this world a 4 star hotel. The people who award these stars frankly have not got a clue. I reakon hotels can buy the status. At £67 it is value for money. At £135 it is not. Staff were fine but noting outstanding and the delay in getting a new kette typical of other posts for this hotel.
So would recommend but only if getting deal.
