Upon arrival the welcome wasn't very friendly.
Then there is only 1 very small lift and all guests (myself included) seemed to be on 4th floor. So I was stood there for ages waiting for lift and had to squeeze in with 2 other people in the end.
The car park is across the road so I was soaked by the time I got to the hotel (and then had to go back out in it to put a 'free car parking' sticker inside.) If you go, don't follow signs for the car park like I did, instead you can park on the road out of the front of the building.
Then my room had a annoying alarm sounding for the first hour. The room faced the town even though I booked sea view and the room was baking hot with no air con. I couldn't sleep due to the heat.
The food in the restaurant sounded amazing, but when it arrived it wasn't the best. The scallops were tiny and tough (one was even burnt.) The seafood tagliatelle was bland and had tiny pieces of shell in it. The food wasn't cheap either and the service wasn't the best.
Breakfast was better, I opted for porridge which was nice and the coffee was lovely. But to be honest that's the only positive I have.
I stayed at the Premier Inn in Dover before and based on this experience next time I would stay there instead!
