Stayed here as was attending a party in the hotel's ballroom. Booked 3 rooms and at time of booking asked for the single room to be on the same floor as one of the doubles. When checked in had 3 rooms on different floors but they changed the single so it was next to one of the doubles. The other double was upgraded to a seafront at no extra charge. Our room was large and comfortable - although headboard was hanging off the wall. Bathroom was not very nice at all - not sure if it was mould or dirt round the base of waste pipe of toilet as didn't get too close to inspect; floor had a dip in it and it didn't feel as though there was a floor board underneath; bath panel was broken and mouldy; shelves for toiletries were rusty but there was plenty of hot water! Complimentary soap, shower gel and shampoo provided.
Complimentary tea, coffee provided. Room very hot and a fan was provided but didn't use it. One window opened but the others wouldn't. Not the hotel's fault but seagulls were so noisey that should have taken earplugs.
In one of the other rooms booked there were pieces of carpet missing and in the other the bed creaked everytime you moved. Breakfast was adequate but found it strange that some tables were already set for dinner so you weren't allowed to sit at them. One of the waiters was quite insistent about where he wanted you to sit rather than where you wanted to sit. Was glad only to be staying the one night and simply using the room to shower and sleep and to have got a reduced rate as party host had got a deal. On the plus the hotel is in a perfect position on the seafront.
