“Beaten up by stag night thugs in beach hotel”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

myself and my partner was woken at round 3am to 16 stag night thugs on a rampage in the hotel after getting no reply from reception for management we opened the door to be instantly beaten by the group with bottles the police arrested and evicted them The management did not show any concern and did not visit us in our blood soaked room ,on leaving we spoke to the management who said the group was a problem from when they first checked in and was threatened by the group ! we then asked for a refund to be told they do not accept responsibility we was left badly beaten because they let 16 drunk thugs into 2 rooms

Stayed August 2011, travelled as a couple

Having read the reviews on here after my partner had booked I was dreading what we would find. On arrival, I was already a bit too defensive when I read the hotel 'rules' which included a £160 fine ifyou left without returning your room key! I let it slide and we went up to our room, expecting to find...well, god-knows-what!

The room we were given was HUGE and had ceilings at least 15 feet high with windows that stretched almost to the ceiling - not a bad start. The room itself was clean enough if a bit dated and the en-suite was clean and (relatively) new. Having said that, there was a crack in the basin and the toilet seat was a bit loose but hey, you get what you pay for, right? Our view was spectacular with a clear view of the East and West piers and Regency Square.

The bed, although a little hard had no stains (yes, I did check under the sheets!) and again was quite new-ish. The TV only received 4 channels but as I've said before, I don't go away to watch TV.

Breakfast was more than adequate and I can honestly say that I have been offered much worse in other hotels. The English breakfast was hot and there was plenty of it, not much of a continental option, though.

What this hotel needs above all else is a bit of love. The walls were tired and in need of paint, the windows were a bit dirtier than I would have liked (on the outside) but that close to the sea how clean can you keep them? Some of the carpets were threadbare and almost all of the florboards creaked!

Maybe it's because we were expecting the worst but this place isn't as bad as a lot of reviewers have made it sound. If you're on a budget but still want a sea view and to be in easy walking distance to the beach and the shops then you could do worse. I did mention to the man at the desk that the hotel had a less than sparkling rating on Trip Advisor so I hope that it makes a difference.

All in all, I really enjoyed our stay here, it's not a five star so don't expect five star and you won't be (too) disappointed.

Hotel is ideally situated right next to the beach and within a 5 min walk to most attractions. This does make parking difficult/expensive however. The room itself was fantastic - huge room with tall ceilings and a great view. A little noisy from the room upstairs but overall sleeping was fine. Breakfast was good, but not fantastic as long as you can beat the stag party to the bacon!

The photographs on the website were nothing like the rooms. The room was just plain awful, it felt like we were slumming it. I would stringly advise anyone from staying here.

Even if it were the last place to stay on earth I'd rather have slept on the pebbles on the beach.

Okay, so this Hotel isn't the Ritz but the rooms were clean, the bed was clean and comfy, the staff were incredibly nice and helpful and the breakfast was lovely. It's in a prme location right on the Seafront, the view at at night is magical. For what you pay, it's not that bad. I'd go back if was for a few nights.

On this site mixed up this hotel with another, do not stay at this hotel, carpet has not seen a hoover since cripple annie died, no curtains in windows just window shutters hanging off the hinges possibly the reason for this was to stop wind coming in window, cobwebs everywhere, stains on walls, carpets & toilet seat could go on forever just do not stay at this hotel, how council can allow this place to stay open I do not knowon
