Check-in was rather slow but the receptionist was very friendly and efficient when we were finally served. I had booked a twin room but we had been allocated a double. This was changed to a 5th floor twin room but the lift was only working up to the 3rd floor. The room was incredibly hot and the windows were screwed shut; the A/C wasn't working either. The phone was out of order so all the way back down to reception to complain. Things progressed much more smoothly after this and we were given a lovely room with windows which could be opened. A note on the A/C though - the receptionist said that none of the units worked. This does present a serious problem in rooms with no other form of ventilation. However on the plus side the breakfast was good, all the hotel staff were very friendly and we got a brilliant deal on last minute. The hotel is on the seafront close to,shops, bars and restaurants.
