Like several other reviewers we stayed here on a KGB deal, 2 ppl, 2 nights Bed, Breakfast & Evening meal all for just £99.
After reading other reviews we didn't get our hopes too high and we were pleasantly surprised!
We arrived around 5.30pm knowing that dinner was at a set time. We were allocated a room on the forth floor at the back of the building. It was a little dated and "tired" looking but spotlessly clean and the bed was comfortable...It was however VERY warm even in October...we turned the heating off and had the windows open and we were still warm! We didn't have a shower in out room as others have said, but there was a shower room just a couple of rooms away so we used that -- again it was spotless!
We went to the small bar before dinner and the barman was very friendly and helpful...pointing out places to go on the evening, bars etc on a small map available free from reception.
Dinner was served at 6.45. Three Courses! There were a few choices for each course and although the portions were small with the three courses you get plenty. And the staff are friendly and attentive.
You are allocated a table and a time for breakfast and dinner on arrival which stays the same for you whole stay.
Breakfast at 8.45 does feel a little early if you are wanting a late night or a lie in but we got up and found that breakfast was nice and well cooked, you again get a choice of what you want, I opted for fruit juice and a full english with poached eggs as you can specify how you want them cooking. It was all cooked to perfection and piping hot. We weren't sure if we would stay for dinner the second evening but we made our choices and were told to let them know mid afternoon if we were eating elsewhere but it seemed silly paying for a pub meal when we could just eat there.
All in all I think for the money it was great value and if the KGB deal comes up again I would re-book. They do have a couple of family rooms where you can pay a supplement for children under 12, so would work out as a fairly cheap weekend trip to the seaside with the little ones. The staff were all excellent.
