We booked this hotel for a short honeymoon break as from looking at the pictures on the website, it looked like a very nice honeymoon suite. The website pics are very misleading, everything looks new and modern yet in reality everything down to the dining chairs are very worn and tired. Any money they had available was spent on the reception and bar area. But if you look closely it has been done very cheaply and poor attention to detail. Priced at £195 a night for the suite we went with a four poster sea view room. Can now understand why there aren't any pics on their site of the bathrooms, there was mold around the bath, a very old looking shower, generally very grubby looking. The 4poster was nothing special just 4posts of wood joined at the top with big ugly screws. Due to the lack of cleanliness and cheapness we upgraded to the honeymoon suite thinking it had to be better! The room on the whole was better - larger and more up to date, with a modern bathroom. The shower however had 2heats, cold or scalding hot. Not enough bathing products for 2to have a bath/shower on same day. The large tv is very fuzzy and looked best from the bed. Only hanging space by entrance door which found odd. The ceiling fan did not work and too noisy to have windows open in the evening (also smokers directly below outside) so had a little desk fan. Attention to detail clearly lacked. Cracks and chipped paint, lights not working, chunks of wood missing from dado rail, thin curtains allow light through, holes in curtains, towels and bedsheets. You will be very lucky if you stay in this room and get any sleep. It is directly over the bar so music is pumping into the room from 7am-1pm onwards unless you phone reception to turn it off, it then takes them 30mins to do this. The room above was as noisy, creaking floor boards, pipes when their shower is on and toilet used. The walls and floors seemed paper thin.
Not sure that it deserves the 3*s it has.
