Getting old and forgot I left my 3 diamond rings in the room when we came home! When I telephoned late afternoon that day such an honest receptionist went to the room we had left early that morning and found the rings-could so easily have said they were not there! Thank you Avro for being so honest and posting the rings back to me. Hope the hotel appreciate this young man. Cant believe anyone would moan about this pony-tailed young man - he was so nice and helpful even when we arrived. Maybe the people who moan are old miseries anyway. If you are nice to people they are nice back!!! I must admit some people were moaning about everything from the minute they step in the door without reason.
As usual, we found the hotel was really clean and comfortable and food is nice.
Clean bedding, extra blankets and pillows and even soap and bath stuff and fluffy towels. TV worked fine and even a fan in our room as it end of June and really warm. We go with Britannia as all their hotels are dog friendly but prefer this one. We have stayed 4 or 5 times now and never had a problem with bites - although that would be down to a dog owner bringing flea ridden dog, not the hotel!
Have never had a threadbare carpet or worn chairs with stuffing poking out as some reviews! It is a bit tired looking from outside but what do you expect on the seafront?
Entertainment was good Friday but nothing at all on the Saturday - good job we had a busy day and the World Cup was on!!
People moan about the parking but the car park is not huge so you cant expect to go out and come back late to find a space with so many cars here.
We found all the staff really nice, helpful and friendly (apart from the moany Minnie of a cleaner!).
We booked through UKbreakaways for a much cheaper weekend deal instead of going to the main website so got a real bargain again even for June. Will definitely be returning here.
