I was at the hotel for business. The hotel is huge inside and very much a labyrinth.
Getting back to one's room can be a quest.
Like other Britannia group hotels that I've stayed in, they are very much stuck in a time and it isn't the 21st century. Saying that, there is free Wifi - about as fast as 3g though.
The room was good. The broken sash window wasn't a problem as the weather was good.
My room was very warm and whilst at reception (dreadfully under-staffed in the evening) a couple were complaining that their room was too cold.
Parking is at the rear of the hotel. However, it was crowded and I paid £12.50 for 24 hours of parking.
Breakfast was pretty good and they even passed the porridge making test - no honey though.
The room only cost £67 and you can't complain about that - especially a room with sea views and 5 minutes max to the sea-front.
