We booked room 10 which was the deluxe king room, on arriving we were shown 2 rooms but both were double rooms, our room had been given to someone else by mistake and it was the only room of that type and we had booked 6 months in advance and specifically booked the room and paid extra for it, the guests who had our room had gone out for the day so we had to wait for the management to contact them, after a couple of hours we returned and the other guests luggage had been removed and we were let in the room, the other couple still had the key though and the management had to use a piece of plastic to get in as no spare key (!!) which is a bit worrying security wise. The room was lovely and spacious with a big flat screen tv, 2 bedside cabinets, a dressing table and wardrobe with ensuite shower. The bed was 2 singles pushed together but this didn't bother us, bedding nice and clean, Minor problems ,only 2 smallish bath towels supplied, no hand towel, the taps in the sink moved when you used them, in the evening the shower was great, hot and powerful, at 8.30 in the morning it was freezing with hardly any pressure, tried 15 minutes later and it was working ok, a bit of a pain having to wait though. Didn't have much sleep as there was a hen party that made loads of noise outside when coming in and for a few hours in the rooms nearby, I'm sure I noticed somewhere that they didn't have single sex parties, but this wasn't the case, the same women turned up in the morning for breakfast still wearing their bed clothes in the breakfast room which didn't seem right. Breakfast was served quickly and was really good, only gripe is that you have to make your own toast and it gets a bit congested in the corner waiting in a queue.
The staff are very friendly and attentive, everywhere is very clean, parking is a bit tight but is good that it is free if you are able to get a spot, bar area is nice, airy and clean, location is good as not far from seafront. Would definately stay again but only in room 10 as the other rooms we saw seemed a bit small. Would have been perfect if we had the right room on arrival and the other female guests weren't so noisy
