I stayed here last night (12th August) for the airshow. Managed to get a twin room with a balcony at the front. Very clean and great views. (R311)
The hotel room has that old Holiday Inn feel, but when it was new. The room is clean and fresh. Bathroom with great soaps/cream etc. Bedroom lots of teas/coffees. The beds well made, room information was good, great t.V. Just a really nice hotel without any this new unecessary gadets. The staff were so helpful and friendly,... just wonderful.
Went with my 3 year old son for the airshow. They took my bags from me at 11.30, I managed to check in at 12.30, which was early. My room was exactly what I wanted, view of the beach and pier just perfect!
The view for the airshow was amazing. Also was able to see the fireworks which started at 10pm. The sun was on the balcony until around 3pm, and it was great if you had a buggy as the slope to get down to the beach was directly infront of the hotel. There is a beach bar directly opposite that had live music playing that evening. I actually found it quite nice as my little one was asleep by 6.30pm so it meant I could sit on the balcony with a drink and have a great view of the sea and listen to music.
Breakfast was 5 star, fruit, cereals, full english; again the staff were amazing. So good to get such service for such a good price. The only upset was that room service stopped at 8pm. I would prefer 10pm, but it was probably better for my waistline as I would have only ordered cake that late!! The room service is limited for children if you want healthy. The jacket potatoe and cheese was fab, i went to the shop and bought a tin of beans and added it, he was in heaven having lunch on the balcony.
Checking out was a breeze, I had a complaint about my burger from the night before and I didn't really report it but they took it off the bill without question. This was 5 star service without a doubt. Congratulations to the manager and your team Amazing!!! Will be back next year with the whole family.
MANAGER: Feedback - a pasta dish on the menu would be great. Thanks
