We got what we expected, for the most part, and it was good value.
When the coach driver tells you to expect peeling wallpaper, before you arrive, then your expectations are going to be more realistic. It is an old building with lots of stairs, and a tiny lift, but in a great position overlooking Tolcarne beach, and an easy walk into town.
Good points -
the great value, and the excellent staff. Service was pretty good.
Food was acceptable, but not very exciting. We ate out once for a change.
Not so good points -
No heating in our room on arrival. A call to reception, and they said that someone would have a look, but soon someone arrived with 2 portable heaters, saying that a plumber had been called for the next day to repair the heater. They obviously knew that heater was broken so could have left portable heaters in the room for arrival, and the plumber never arrived on Tues, Weds or Thurs. There was no need to tell porkys!
Shower was pathetic, at any time of day, so not easy to wash, although there was always hot water, the flow was just a dribble.
Room was pretty clean apart from thick dust over bathroom door.
TV was an ancient portable with a tiny screen, but still managed to give 5 channels. Only problem was that sound kept breaking up, and getting radio sound over TV pictures, even though no radio stations available?
