we booked 3 nights here going by ta reviews,well i have to say for £140 a night it was very overpriced,the entrance is grand and the room had a lovely view of the sea and beachy head,but the room 111 really needs to be updated the door into the room and the bathroom door were both peeling paint and very battered,wallpaper peeling off walls,also we requested an iron and ironing board the 1st one delivered to our room was filthy and sticky and leaking yellow stained water we tried it out on a towel good job we did as it would have ruined any clothes,so we had to ring reception again and get another one the iron was better but the ironing boards need new covers!!the 1st night we ate in the restaurant,the food was ok but the atmosphere was terrible it was like a morgue,my husband asked the young waiter if they played a little light background music for abit of ambiance,reply was no management wont allow it,then later i asked in the bar same question i got the same reply,they poor youngsters waiting on seem very suppressed,come on management(ian turnball) give them abit of incentive they are doing a great job,but they all seem depressed with their jobs!! we did use the pool but it really needs a shower there,so people can shower before entering for hygeine reasons!! so all in all it seems its down to bad management as the place needs a good bit of money spent on it to get it as it should be for guests paying those prices.
