We visited this hotel in Dec to see Priscilla stage show, it was one of the windiest days along with rain beating down.
We booked in and was allocated a room we went to the room to find it was on the side of the Hotel and small too. Just outside the window was scaffolding with plastic sheeting over it, flapping in the wind. This I was unhappy with to be allocated such a room when the Hotel wasnt full. We told reception we were unhappy with the room and wanted to change, we paid the extra and had a sea view room. The room was huge, but the windows which are fairly new leaked liked anything as they didn't fit properly and the staff who had been in before to make room up had placed a pillowcase in the gap of the window to mop up the rain water that was pouring in.
So overall the hotel is great the breakfast is one of the best and the staff there are great, including the lady who has been there for years. the rooms do need tlc and the carpet cleaner out too.
