Booked this room at the last moment and headed off for a quiet weekend away. Location was fine, up near the pier, and not far from Promenade.
The girl on Reception was friendly and advised us that we were on the second floor but there was no lift. So we carried the luggage up the four flights of stairs to get up there. Not the best start.
The room was large but quite ordinary. Not at all modern, and some items like the table lamp didn't work. We thought that for one night it was ok but we would have been disappointed if we had been there for longer.
For the money we paid, £62, I felt it was a little over-priced for the state of the room. Most Premier Inn rooms or Travelodge rooms are better equipped than the Comfort Hotel and cost around the same.
We hoped to have a drink in the hotel bar in the evening but after standing waiting for five minutes or so, another customer told us to ring a bell and that someone would come to serve us "in about twenty minutes". We laughed but this turned out to be true. When the barman did arrive, we got our drinks and everyone else quickly got another round before he could disappear again! Sadly there was no atmosphere in the bar and so we left after the one drink.
It's a shame, but a little TLC would make such a difference to this place.
