we have just returned from a weekend break at the OCEAN VIEW which it certainly has.
Hotel looks really good on outside and ground floor where it has been recently decorated.
staff are freindly and breakfast was good.
Now the disappointing points. we had a room on the second floor, large superior booked, but would not call it superior as it had wall paper hanging off by the window, television would not work unless you wanted BBC only. The wardrobe I am sure was for decoration only as although it had hangars you could only hang a pair of boxers on the rail as it had a non removable shelf 12 inches below. anything else you would have to hang on the outside of the wardrobe.
the floor boards creaked as they were about to cave in and the carpet needs renewing on the stairs. bare patches and silver duck tape hol;ding it together. Anyone with a bad back watch out for the lift as it jolts to a halt.
