Well it's certainly true that this hotel is in need of some serious TLC but get past the first impression and look beyond the slightly off putting entrance and with an open mind you will be pleasantly surprised.
Check in was courteous and efficient. Good directions helped us find our room without a problem.
We had booked a sea view and there it was along with the prom and the Tower. It was great.
The room was clean, the furniture a little old fashioned but functional, there were spare pillows in the wardrobe. The bed was fresh and clean and the bathroom had been recently refurbished to a decent standard.
Breakfast was very good. Fruit, 5 cereals, all the usual hots well cooked and pots of tea or coffee delivered as required. Quite frankly I could not fault it.
All in all we enjoyed our 2 night stay. The public areas are a bit past it but beds, bathrooms and breakfast were all good and those are the bits that really matter.
The location was good for us, being near shops and tower.
It's not luxury but it is comfortable, excellent value and you won't go hungry.
Would stay again.
