Similar to other reviews, I have to say this appears to be 'Work in Progress'.
The rooms are dreadfully small but amazingly well-equipped (eg we had a mini fridge, plenty of storage space, hairdryer and even wine glasses)
The rooms have obviously been decorated but the outer bedding we had was yellow and clearly been used before!
The bathroom lighting could be a bit brighter, as the window had been blocked off.
The outside areas need another coat of paint.
But the breakfasts were very good. We also had a bar meal, which was cooked freshly for us and was excellent.
The views across the bay are wonderful.
We stayed in April when it was quiet. I suspect the noise from the swimming pool area, nearby funfair and caravan park across the road may be quite high in summer months though.
Car parking may not be adequate if the hotel is busy.
But overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Would we stay again - well, when we left this hotel, we moved onto Devon and stayed in another hotel for the same price. Our room was about five times bigger, king size bed, similar breakfast, more parking, sea view. You decide.
