visited this hotel last month, (march2014)
on arrival we were greeted by friendly staff, given tea coffee and cake and even a glass of bubbly too!.. we bought this as a deal on wowcher and got the deal for 2 nights bed and breakfast. Room was on the 2nd floor where there was a lift for use. The room was well spaced and comfortable. en suit bathroom with a separate shower too, tv and tea making facilities. The exterior of this lovely hotel was nice, clean and looked after. down a street within reach of the town and beaches. approx. 10 minute stroll.
The reception staff were lovely and friendly and were helpful too.
The hotel has a bar, offers meals ad room service. has a laundry room so you can use an iron if needed. There is a lovely entertainment room with ample seating too. a pool table and slot machines.
on a down note the wimming pool outside isn't fit to swim in, one gentleman even commented to my partner that the outside pool was like that last year, I noted the pool was over hung by trees so its no surprising that the pool has leaves etc... needs a good clean. The indoor pool was lovely and warm and the spa was good. again the only thing that let the pool indoors down was that it could do with some TLC as there were little things that we noticed needed attention, but we used it anyway with no problem.
The breakfast was nice, well cooked and presented. Two lads served with no problem, although the one did do a bit of moaning as people were just sitting where they wanted and not in room order and he did seem abit "stroppy" but we found this quite funny and had a good giggle about it.
The walls are thin though and the neighbours were noisy, luckily I take ear plugs as we could hear the whole conversations and they came in at 3 am which wasn't nice.. but they were on holiday too I guess...
would we go back?.. most definitely!!.. this is a lovely hotel, the age of the property and decor etc..only adds to its uniqueness as far as we are concerned... we enjoyed our stay and thank you to the staff for making our stay a good one.
