Booked a two night stay to meet friends for a reunion. This hotel was excellent for food and has its own entertainment venue attached ideal if the weather is bad as you can access it from the hotel.
Staff were very pleasant and keen to ensure you had what you needed especially the dining room staff.
One thing that lets this hotel down is the rooms they are very outdated and need a good refurbishment. Bathrooms were adequate but again dated. Our room 236 was a seaview room with a double bed and single bed in so although big any spare room was taken up by the single bed.
However, all was ok with the room until we came to bed and that was then we discovered we were over the entertainment venue and they had a very loud disco on until 2am. The noise was awful and to add to it they started hoovering the dining room before 7am the next morning so not much sleep for us.
I spoke to them the next morning and me complaining about the noise was no surprise to them at all they were obviously used to it one girl even said "oh yes it is a noisy room". They swopped our room with someone who was arriving that day and it was lovely and quite that night. I got the feeling they put people in that room knowing they will have to move them the next day. They really need to sort it out or not rent out those rooms affected.
