We expected the hotel to be a little quirky as the pictures of the decor are a bit 'different' putting it politely. The stairs, being on a 3rd floor room (room 307 or 308, cannot remember) were very worn, rickety and narrow, I could see this being quite dangerous if someone was to fall however being a listed building I understand changes to the structure are limited. The room itself being described as a double was more like a large single. The bed sheets were damp and you could barely fit one person around the outside of the bed. It was clearly a larger room split in half with a false wall in which you could hear everything anyone in the other half of the room was talking about. There was a LOCKED FIRE DOOR separating the rooms, of which is not only dangerous but against the law!! If there was a fire on the floor below, you would be trapped in that room; as there was no way of getting out of the window.
Continuing on, the lights sometimes worked and sometimes didn't, the TV was also just as predictable. It stated that a hair dryer was including within the room, after searching all the cupboards none could be found. We then went down to the 1st floor reception, and called the button for attention, not once, twice, but 3 long rings before a lady emerged stating she would bring one up to us... which as you can guess never happened. The bathroom was again basic and cramped.
However the sea view and location was perfect for us. Only a few minutes from the railway and shops, as well as a few minutes to the seafront, pier, nightclubs and bars. We were only looking for a room to crash in, and this was perfect for that after long nights out.
