We stayed her for 2 nights on a spring break DBB deal. On arrival, we couldn't find anywhere to park in their modest sized car park. We later discovered that there is limited additional parking at their sister hotels. This might be a problem in peak season.
On checking in, we were told that there was no record of our booking, even though we had pre-paid. Luckily they had a spare room, but there was more than a suggestion that we had made a mistake and gone to the wrong hotel or confused dates even though we had written confirmation. A less than confidant person might have become very upset at this.
The cliff top location was good and an easy walk to the town and seafront.
Our room with a car park view was compact but fine for our short stay.
The food was perfectly acceptable but not very exciting and very much designed for mass-catering for conferences and coach parties.
