We had two rooms, one double room for my parents, and a triple room for husband and I and our 15mth old. The double room (room2) seemed fine on first inspection, but the view was somewhat obstructed due to the fact the window hadnt been cleaned in what looked like a least a year. There was also quite a large gap between the window and the frame. We had quite bad winds on our last night and my parents told me that the curtain were blowing open and the room was freezing - all due to the gap in the window frame. My parents also found dismantled furniture under their bed, with loose screws strewn over the floor - good job we were not staying in there with our toddler. They were also shocked to find that their bathmat was dripping wet - literally soaking.
Our room was a good size and had a really fantastic view of the beach and the promenade. However, our room needed a good proper clean. We found cigarette tips under the bed, the carpet needed a real good hoover and the bathroom could have done with a proper clean. Downstairs lounge was very dark and cluttered. Large dead plants on display - also needed a good clean. Breakfast was nice - no complaints there, but again, felt like the breakfast room needed a good clean - dont know how long ago it had been hoovered. The downstairs toilet did not flush so I was greeted with a nice sight the first and only time I used it. And this toilet is right next to the kitchen. The young waitress/cleaner seemed to have quite the attitiude. On our first day we heard her arguing and swearing at another employee of the hotel, and she generally had a miserable approach whenever we saw her. The Owner was very helpful and really nice, I wish I could write him a nicer review. Would I stay here again? Only if the place had a really thorough clean, and only in warm weather or the rooms would be freezing. We didnt expect the hilton, as we only paid £20 pppn, but we did expect cleanliness.
Get a seaview room - views are amazing - take your thermals if its bad weather.
