Stayed there this weekend. The hotel is in a good, but not necessarily the best location, its a moot point. It has direct access to the main park/water gardens that leads to the town centre. It would be great with its night time fairy lights if it were not for local youths drunk out of their skulls. The hotel also has acess to the pier and beach without having to cross the road and some of the better restaurants are about ten minutes walk away. A tad disappointed with the hotel itself though. A car park way too small, means you have to double park and leave your keys with reception. The hotels impressive facade, including a mysterous glass rotundra and uniformed staff, give it an oldy world and high class feel. However, the rooms also hark back to another era. Ours was big and very clean, but it was also very cold when we arrived and I had to call reception. A portable heater was promptly provided however. It was clearly an issue on the minds of at least one other guest, as it was under discussion at reception. The decor and furniture though adequate were not warm, nor was the lighting and the bed side lamps difficult to operate. The bathroom was a good size and seemed more modern. On a bizarre note, in order to reach our room we had to cut through a main dining area, which at one point was holding a private function. The staff were OK but very uneven in the service provided especially at reception. Value for money yes, would we stay there again, possibly. Its location is probably its strongest selling point. In terms of facilities it could do a lot better.
