well it's true (read above reviews) and such a shame as this hotel is beautifully situated overlooking the sea & the public rooms are grand indeed.
We found the food good but the RECEPTION staff are obviously worn out dealing with daily complaints about the basement rooms. To these we would add room 605!!!!!
A servant's room in the attic to which we were shown and then had to pay £20 per night for an upgrade!
a staff member gave us this tip
PHONE the hotel direct the day before you travel to request a room with a view on floors 2 3 4 5 NOT 6. rooms are allocated 1st thing each day so phone before 9am
i would go again if I WAS GUARANTEED A GOOD ROOM---IT'S A QUESTION OF LUCK.
