I am not one to moan about National Holiday Hotels but this hotel has changed my view on poor value on offer at certain places.This hotel has one good point and that it is on the beach but after that it is downhill all the way.When we arrived we found the hotel full and one poor guest from Lancs area put in a room that had been condemmed for months.The food is poor,at breakfast you have the choice of a small glass of juice or a bowl cereal but not both as in most places.Dinner is served with potatoes and veg,but thats no good with Ham salad,spag bol, fish and chips etc.The old lounge area in the hotel has been turned into. an Irish Bar and is open to the public and they have an offer on KIDS EAT FREE so the bar is full of noisy kids all afternoon and local youths at night.Entertainment is non existent because its in the Irish Bar and they dont have room for 200 hotel guests.And anyway Everton v Man Utd or Karaoke is not entertainment for people who are 60+.One afternoon my wife and I saw a man who could hardly walk straight come out of the bar having just been served with 2 pints of lager. Ten minutes later we saw him sat outside the hotel fast asleep and covered in vomit.This is the only trip I've been on where the whole coach cheered as we left on our way home.And finally if you want an early night forget it because the locals in the Iriish Bar downstairs will keep you up till gone midnight
