My wife and i have just returned from this hotel,having had a 4 night break with national coach holidays.Having read some of the previous reviews we had some reservations about booking,but we have learned from the past what suits one might not suit others,so try it for yourself.On arrival we were allocated a twin room on the 3rd floor,the room appeared clean and tidy.but felt quite small,it did have a window but no view,which made it feel dark.I asked reception if we could upgrade to a premier room with sea view,the receptionist was very pleasant and found us another room for which we paid an extra £80,which included our entry to the premier dining room,which is a smaller dining area which seats about 50 people.On the first evening meal when we went down to dine,the queue to get into the normal restaurant was all the way down the stairs and i think was taking about 20 mins to get in,It didnt involve us thanks to the upgrade.My biggest grouse was finding that the heating was turned off at 10.30am until 16.30pm on a daily basis,As the temperature dropped to minus figures outside not such a good idea,I asked at reception for a portable heater,the girl said she would see what she could do,obviously not a lot as it never appeared,with the hotel catering for hundreds of elderly people this practice needs a serious re-think,or maybe they could train maintenace how to overide the timer when needed.I have read lots about the food at this hotel,but can say the food on offer in premier dining was excellent.
