We also stayed in the much vaunted circular room with the sea view-did Kylie really stay here?? I doubt it!
Starting with the good;our reception was friendly and helpful, this is a very difficult hotel to park at and if there is a space you get stung for £12.50 and it is tiny.We also hade a very nice meal in their resteraunt although it is very cramped, you get to know your fellow guests whether you want to or not.
The room is well equipped but small, the wet room will not suit everyone but it was ok.Shutters in the room insufficient to keep out the lights outside the hotel which did not go off until after midnight.It was also freezing, the underfloor heating was poor so they had put in a tiny heater which helped but it was all very heath robinsonish for this price.
The bar service was very amateurish and the seats were not clean, nuts and debris all over the place.
Breakfast was shambolic, in fact we walked out.We were eventually shown to a tiny table (after being ignored) squeezed between some rather large guests,We were then ignored for a further 10 mins at which point we decided to call it a day.When we were asked about our stay on checkout I obviously mentioned breakfast, nobody seemed that bothered.
Pity, could be a really nice place to stay but needs more experienced staff and less covers in the resteraunt.
