We also stayed in room 301. The hotel's advertises itself as a modern take on a seaside hotel with excellent customer service. We arrived during a loud and very dodgy Elvis impersonator singing whilst a gathering of middle aged women danced around! Despite being on the top floor there was no working lift, so after struggling up several flights of stairs we eventually found our surprisingly small tatty room. Certainly not what we'd seen in the images online. The bed was small with no headboard & cheap polyester quit & pillows. The bathroom was tiny with cracked floor tiles & despite the pipes for a towel radiator, there was nowhere to hang wet towels. The window had no latch so we either baked or had the window open, whilst listening to drunken abusive language drifting in from outside, as the window banged open and shut. The breakfast was ok, nothing special but true to say the staff were friendly. Overpriced & overvalued by the owners....not somewhere we'd stay again.
