Stayed for 3 days at the end of May. Arrived at 0130 after a short while someone came to the reception desk, and check in was fine. However, the room was a disappointment, in spite of its size as the bedroom curtain was half hanging off its rail. This must have been obvious to the cleaners so we were surprised for it to be like this. Although we were on the first floor the rear car park was level with our window, so we weren't too well pleased. Luckily being resourceful the cutlery was used to effect a good repair to ensure privacy. In spite of mentioning this defect, it was never repaired during our 3 days, has it been now?
The room was large with comfortable beds, lounge/kitchen and shower/toilet - a bit battered in places but fine.
The continental breakfast buffet was good and was constantly topped up, on odd occasions it was a bit chaotic pre 0900. There is a small car park out front, but plenty of spaces to the rear. The reception staff will assist in phoning car hire/tour companies for you, and theres plenty of leaflets in the reception. Within the local area theres 2 24hr supermarkets and a Domino pizza takeaway. Usefully for afternoon departures theres a left luggage room.
You can walk along the shore or via the main shopping street into the town centre within 10 minutes.
Overall a good hotel at a good price let down by a basic flaw in the bedroom, not remedied by their staff.
