Stayed for two nights £25.00 per night single B&B wow. for that price i was expected rubbish?
thats not what i got, I had an upgrade to a double room. R157 large room enormous bed, and bunk beds in the corner aswell, flat screen tv with full free view, was broken to start, so checked around and found ariel had come out of the wall behind the bed. twinnings english tea in the room, new kettle. clean bathroom, shower pressure a little rubbish but it worked. clean bed, clean sheets, clean fluffy pillows. bright clean towels. Water broke on day two so was given a key to another room, 243 room was ok, but was almost a single with double bed? glad i had my room.
Booked and stayed a third night, but had to book online to get discount price, as reception couldnt do it.
first morning was shocking, no one taking control, set my own table, bacon was stone cold, appeared the hot ring had gone out, so as a member of staff walked past i said.... Excuse me the bacon is cold? stone cold? he said and i quote. " yes i know " " im waiter " and walked away. i complained with other customers who said thats what he does? he saw me talking about him and came over rather aggressively and said if you have problem with food you need go complain at reception, i am waiter not kitchen staff, food not my problem. SHOCKING
So i did complain, and pointed out the idiot with no manners. maybe thats why things got better.
Day 2 a little better, tables set and ready food appeared hot and was rather nice, on day three, they run like a well oiled machine, some one to take room number, someone to check tables set, a waiter to help top food up and check all was good, a waitress walking about clearing dishes as you went, WOW after the first days this was now being run by people who appeared to know what they were doing.
On the third night they had a Thai boxing tournament, full of idiots. sorry not full of, some were very nice people, BUT at the end of the evening it all kicked off in the bar/lounge. blood and teeth everywhere, shouting and screaming fighting in car park and out onto the street. Had to leave and retire to bed before getting caught up with idiots who couldnt control themselves or there drink. spoiled my evening of quietly getting drunk.
Free parking. approx 10min walk to nearest beach. and i would say 20mins brisk walk into the town. £7.00 for a taxi back from the town, although i had a taxi driver who thought he would rob me, and charge me extras?? 80p ? why?? because council tell them to add 80p to ever journey? why? instead of starting at £2.80 just start at £3.60 then? he explained 80p for first customer and 20p for each additional customer? POPPYCOCK.
Big question would i stay there again?
well worth it.
