We stayed just for one night after attending a funeral. Although we only saw 3 staff during our visit, receptionist (same one booking in and checking out), breakfast waiter, and handyman, everyone was very friendly and welcoming.
The Room - twin beds, very spacious, lovely views overlooking the sea, has the wow factor, 3 good bay windows to the front and one on the side giving a full view of the beach and the pier. Décor a bit tired, pealing paintwork but nothing a good refurbishment wouldn’t sort out. I can sleep on a clothes line but my wife said the bed was very comfortable and she had a good night sleep. Limited tea, coffee and milk in the room and I had to take the cups to reception because they were dirty but they were changed straight away and we were given extra supplies of tea, coffee and milk.
Bathroom - very clean unfortunately acrylic sink unit is extremely scratched, deep enough to catch your finger nails in which makes it look dirty. Also cigarette burns along the edge of the sink and above the toilet, a throwback to the days of smoking in the rooms - time to replace I think. The water pressure in from the cold sink tap was extremely low just dribbling out so had to be careful not to burn your hands. Unable to take shower due to water pressure as it did not have the force to take it away from taps - the shower is just a mixer tap type at the end of the bath - the bathroom would greatly benefit from a power shower.
Lounge / Bar - obviously recently refurbished to good standards and it is lovely.
Breakfast / Dining Room - clean and tidy, we did not have an evening meal because the service closed rather early so can’t comment, however the breakfast service is quite late so no rush. We both had the full English which was cooked well although the poached egg was a little under cooked for my liking. There is a good selection of cereals and juices but the coffee was a bit stewed until they made a fresh pot. There is no selection of cheese and meats for a true continental breakfast.
Would we stay again - not unless the water pressure was sorted out and at £110.00 per night I think a bit expensive for what it was.
Having said all that if they refurbish the rooms to the same standard as the lounge this could be one to watch.
