First impressions of the hotel were quite good. The parking was a bit awkward, luckily I got there early so I was at the front but people who got a space further back had to leave their car keys in reception so the staff could move the cars if they were in the way, which if that was me I wouldn't be happy about! Check in was really fast got the keys straight away and added on breakfast for a small cost (manager was slightly arrogant looked at you as if you where a bad smell under his nose). We was on the third floor we had only booked a small double room, the stairs where quite narrow and steep and was a bit nackerd by the time we got to the room. Once in the room the last people's rubbish was in a bin bag on the bed and a few long brown hairs on the pillows, bit gross but where not ones to make a fuss so just sorted it ourselves. Had a really good sea view in our room but the bed! I could feel every spring which was annoying plus the bedroom
Walls were seriously thing and could hear every thing in the corridor. Breakfast was good the next morning, buffet/self serve, there was staff behind the food stalls watching your every move and felt a little bit uncomfortable by this. All in all it's a reasonable hotel for a cheap price, you really do get what you pay for, it's in a good location for the pleasure beach but for night life, you'd be walking about half an hour to 45 mins, also wouldn't recommend for people with walking problems there's no lift and the stairs are knackering.
