Stayed here with my son for two nights as a half term trip. We were given a nice room which had a balcony and a partial sea view (we had upgraded for that). The room smelt of new carpet so I got the impression it had been newly refurbished. The bathroom hadn't been though and could probably do with it. They were clearly struggling with water pressure though as there was barely enough to come through the taps for much of our stay. Also on the second night there was no hot water. The room did have a nice spacious balcony with sating and a table. It was however near the function room below and was quite noisy on our first night as there seemed to be a large party going on below. We used the pool twice during our stay, it was nice and warm but tiny cramped changing facilities right on the pool side. They do provide towels free though.
The main restaurant seemed fairly deserted at night and I think people tended to just eat in the bar. We only ate breakfast in the end in the hotel which was fine although it's advisable to get down early as some pastry items run out quickly. My main issue was parking which is very limited. If you leave the hotel at night you will struggle to park on return. We ended up having to park some way from the hotel and when I went to retrieve the car in the morning it had damaged. I guess all in all the hotel was ok and reasonably priced for the facilities and location.
