This was an independently booked two day trip although there were two coach parties....
The hotel is in a really great position, and we had paid extra for a seaview room. It was worth it !!!
But back to the start... When we got up close the outside wall of the entrance had the wall finish peeling away, and I could have hooked my fingers behind and pulled it away.. There were a number of "fag ends" strewed around the entrance as well as a selection of other debris. As we opened the door we were hit by a musty smell reminiscent of lots of charity shops.... Although it was 14.30 and the place was deserted we were told we couldn't check in until 15.30 !!
Otherwise the staff were very friendly, the service was good, the room great, don't expect fantastic cuisine (£11 for a three course meal ordered at time of booking), the hotel was clean BUT in a major need of refurbishment
