Spent a few days at the Atlantic Hotel ovver the New Year 2012/13. The hotel has a grand entrance hall/lobby and was well decorated for Christmas. The imposing staircase and quality carpets harped back to its glamour Victorian days, however the water staining from a number of historic roof leaks dampend it down somewhat. Our topfloor sea view room was pleasantly decorated and furnished with an excellentquality bathroom suite. Fantastic sea views. Oops - a lot of water staining to the ceiling, again from historic roof leaks. Hot water, both in quantity and temperature was somewhat reduced but at early evening the supply became a tepid trickle. Dining in the main restuarant was a little dated, wine glasses, plates and silverware a throwback to the 70's, no water glasses. Breakfast, excellent fare, buffett with great, friendly chef on hand to prepare your eggs anyway you like, his attitude is a great asset to the hotel. Dinner, a OK but again a little dated - opional starter of fruit salad, stir fried vegetables served with side dish of boiled vegetables and fruit salad an offering for desert. Bolied vegetable side order is served with all main courses, including Chicken Curry & Rice. All well cooked, but odd offerings. The bar was understaffed, and in fact could have benefitted from more on New Years Eve, good staff, however not enough. No iron or board in rooms, when asking for on from reception, told they were all out with guests, when asking if we could have one when a guest/room had finished we were told that no-one keep tab on which rooms they had gone to!! Overall a pleasant 3* hotel that maybe could benefit from an upgrading of it's mechanical services to offer constant hot water to all at all times, it's possible and not too much to expect in 2013. Wi-Fi offered but over three nights never got a connection, again it's 2013!! American Express NOT accepted, it's 2013 I cant remember a hotel not accepting all major cards. Just needs bringing up to date, unless you prefer the 70's.
