Don't know what room the people who left excellent reviews stopped in,but ours was filthy.
Went on a coach trip, but when we saw hotel ,we wish we had cancelled.
Our room had windows with tissue stuffed in gaps.A window was just hanging very dangerously in the pane,with a half inch gap at the top,
Mould in the bathroom that looked as though it hadn't been cleaned in years.
the shower didn't work properly.
We stopped in a room with a "sea View".we couldn't see the view because of the filthy windows and dirty net curtains.
Fair enough there was scaffolding outside ,so expect a little mess,but it looked as though it had been like that for a very long time.
The only good thing was the waiter .he was very friendly,and kept smiling even under pressure.
One review said that some people are too fussy and shouldn't expect much from a budget hotel.
However,we have stopped in a few budget hotels' and have never seen one as bad as this.
Don,t know how old the photos are that promote the hotel,but they must have been taken just after a refurb,because i can assure you that they are not true to form.
Will never stay here again.
