We went on a 3night dancing holiday to this hotel,this was our second such break,our other 2years previous.Yes standards have slipped since our last visit,but value for money was still excellant.we arrived, tired again!!( my age I guess) after a 134 mile journey,reception were good and soon had us on our way to room 101,Yes really,passing many grand rooms on the front part,yep your`ve guessed our`s was around a corner!! but wow a huge room,large bathroom,bath and in bath shower,large enough for a party,a large bed ,chairs to sit,and not least a 50" television,and our own cocktail bar!! only had tea /coffee unfortunatley.Having had a nice long soak we ventured down to the bar which was part of a large lounge with views over the sea and harbour,yes the windows did need replacing,a good clean might help,but as they face a main one way road which gets very busy with buses and other traffic,but lounge is quiet apart from most evenings when live music is avaiable.this hotel is huge,and bedrooms do vary,ours had a view of a fire escape( always handy!! and a few flower tubs,no sea view but heck a room is only to sleep in,other facilities are available a pool which is due to be refurbished,and a gym to,neither of which we used.So having a drink in hand we entered a large adjacent dining room,plenty of space, nicely laid out,starters were available, good choice,we had the soup excellant,and then ordered from a menu,with a choice of 5 main meals something for everyone,it arrived quite quickly with the vegatables separately,nice and hot,this was followed by a choice of 8 help yourself desserts,wow . Our ballroom was excellant if a bit too hot,and very enjoyable thanks John and Hazel,we finished our evening off in the lounge bar,listening to Doug singing,he will sing most things,or put on music to dance to, on the smallish floor.Next morning breakfast choice of cereals,piping hot bacon eggs etc,wow I even put on weight .Parking is good with 3 large car parks quite close,parking fee`s thru hotel varied from £7.50 per day.To sum up yes hotel does look tired in places,but the staff always smiled and helped you if possible,its very central near shops,beach,with nearby lifts,We only hope the new owners do NOT spoil the ambience of this hotel with too many changes!!
