Surprise after surprise is found in this quaint seagull sanctuary. I initially thought the street outside was marble but on closer inspection I realised it was bird dropping. 250 for three nights of hell (2 still to go). The floorboards are so warped I felt like I was stoned walking to my room. Upon entry to the room (we booked a double) I was confronted by 2 single beds pushed together and a Z bed for the kid. We had a few moths visiting as well which added to the splendour. The night was spent roasting with my partners daughter in the bed with us due to the springs in the 70s Z bed stabbing her. Breakfast was a fiasco, while I was up getting my fry up buffet the hotel staff were playing musical chairs in my absence and had decided to relocate us to another table without asking. I returned to my table where I watched a waitress walk off with my coffee. We were told our table was being used by a coach trip. I was in the restaurant 30 mins and not one person sat in the "reserved seats" I am writing this from the lounge at present. My partner has just had to return a chocolate brownie she bought because it smelled of stale cheese(no sell buy date on the wrapper!!). Mariah Carey was on the stereo a minute ago singing " all I want for Xmas is you...." If your a big fan of the stale smell of octogenarian, squeaky floorboards, unsafe bannisters, a twisted manager. 50s to 70s decor and hidden charges for using the swimming pool then this is the hotel for you... In fact I will sell you 2 nights for 50 quid.. 4 star they say... I'd say that's a 5 star lie!!!!
