I suppose this hotel is similar to most in the area. It's certainly not somewhere I'd have chosen for myself but it was adequate for my needs. We were staying as part of a conference and the staff could not have been more helpful or attentive. The food, they had a special menu in a separate dining room for us, was good. The bedroom I was in was a little tired, massive but lacking a lot of the extras I like. The bathroom really needed doing up. The hotel has some lovely period features but could do with a freshen up. The whole hotel was so hot. The average age of the guests was probably 70 so I understand this but myself and our group constantly moaned about feeling too hot. Fantastic view of the sea and an outdoor pool which would be lovely in good weather. The rooms, and hotel in general, although very tired were spotless. Really clean, credit to the cleaning staff! The whole thing felt (and smelt) a bit like staying with your Nan.
