Having read the reviews before booking, we requested a room on the 2nd floor. On arrival, they acknowledged our request but unfortunately did not have a room on the 2nd floor available - they did however say that we'd been upgraded to a sea view patio room. As it was a bank holiday weekend we appreciated this effort and we were only there for 1 night.
Friendly, efficient staff made the check in and stay really pleasant.
The location was excellent with wonderful sea views.
Loved the funky décor in the reception, bar and restaurant. The room however was disappointing, it was very small and cramped as was the bathroom and the toilet seat was broken. They thanked us for reporting this on checkout and said they'd have it fixed but I was surprised that the cleaner had not picked this up before we arrived.
I can understand why others recommended a room on the second floor as you could hear the people in the room above who came in at 2am in the morning and were up at 7am.
Breakfast was average - thought 9.30am was a little early to finish on a bank holiday.
Pleasant enough stay and would go again if we could be guaranteed of a bigger room on the 2nd floor.
