We stayed one night at the Seabank with our two children.
The hotel is quiet and very well located at the end of the beach overlooking the sea.
We thought the rooms were very dated - 80s bedspreads, tired curtains, ugly furniture and rather institutional bathrooms. The rooms were by no means dirty - just that when things are so old and dated, they don't look particularly clean either.
Breakfast was included - reasonable buffet but served in the gloom and quiet of the internal part of the restaurant - well away from the windows with the sea view!
We had specifically asked for an adjoining room for our young children when we booked by phone. However when we arrived and were sent up to our rooms, we found they were on completely different corridors - no adjoining rooms available.
The receptionist told us the hotel was to be updated and the rates reviewed.
We paid £80 for each room for the night- this seemed very steep given the quality of the accommodation and food.
