After a 12 hour delay at gatwick, we arrived at the summerville.
we are well seasoned travellers and have stayed in many countries, in accomodation ranging from 1 to 5*. Never have i seen a room as dirty, shoddy and foul smelling as we did that night. The toilet was foul, there were bare wires hanging out of the walls, the towels and sheets looked dirty.the stair well leading to room was dirty and kept in a poor state of repair. The door to the room had a boot inprint and so it goes on.
We had booked with Jewel in the Crown, never to be repeated. After speaking to the rep, we were so called upgraded, to a larger but still dirty room for the night. In the light of day please be aware that there are locals living to the right of the hotel and a building site to the left, not mentioned in the brochure
After a farce with the rep the next morning, we went off and found our own accomodation, a wonderful B&B called Virginina's.
We are in the midst of a legal wrangle with Jewel in the Crown, who have offered so far £138, which they say is the amount they would of paid the Summerville,for two weeks, two rooms on a B&B basis. No wonder if this is the case, that the Jewel in the Crown accomodation block is so poorly maintained. Thomas Cook also go here, their block is painted blue and looked clean and tidy. We also saw that the the beach beyond the grounded tanker was untidy and unkept.
We learnt a hard lesson, stick with tour operators you know and trust.
