We booked this hotel at the very last minute; it was £55 for a double room for the night, with an additonal £5 charge per person for breakfast. The room was clean and tidy, but drab and tired looking. The wallpaper was peeling in several places, the skirting board was cracked and the bathroom looked in need of regrouting. In our room we also had what we thought was a motion sensor above our door. It emitted a bright green light all night which disturbed my sleep. Our room also got uncomfortably hot during the night. However, breakfast was lovely - the lady serving us was brilliant. She kept offering us more tea and coffee! The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the pier/Adventure Island although we got a taxi into town and back when we went out for a meal in the evening. I think we got what we paid for; couldn't fault the breakfast but the hotel needs some serious TLC (which it seemed in the process of receiving). Would recommend for last minute bookings or overnight stays.
