This is a hotel which needs updating. The exterior and even the public areas look ok- except for the strange appearance of hand sanitisors all over the place. Never seen that in a hotel before and it made me think that perhaps there was an issue of infection control, like in hospital? But the facade hides the problem - the bedrooms. We booked high floor, non-smoking, seaview, twin. We got first floor, smoking, wall view through dirty frosted glass but they got the twin bit right. Room 179 is shocking -do not accept it! It is the most awful hotel space (I cannot call it a room) I have ever seen. I don't know how they have the cheek to take money for it. The reception staff had a meeting on what to do with me and my daughter in private. We were given a better room which was high floor, non-smoking, lovely sea view but double. That didn't matter too much though. But if this was a superior room, it wasn't really that good. Stained carpet, stained lino in bathroom, strange growth on toilet seat, damp on window alcove ceiling, shockingly cheap pillow which meant we had to use our clothes to sleep on. The half empty bottle of wine we found in the otherwise empty wardrobe made us question the housekeeping standards.
The good things- staff were extremely nice and helpful particularly in the restaurant and behind the bar. Breakfast and 3 course dinner included was good with decent veggie option. Fantastic seafront location, away from the crowds but trams and buses right outside. Ample free parking. Loved the jaccuzi bath.
Can't get over the fact that whole floors in the hotel seem to be smoking! What a health and safety hazard! Unfortunately, we won't be staying there again.
