We have just returned from a 5 day stay at this hotel. Having read some of the Reviews on this site, we decided to book the sea view rooms. A very good choice from all accounts!! Didn't cost a lot more either.
The hotel is a bit dated but I have seen much worse coaching hotels in my time. A warm reception met us and the booking in proceedure was very efficient. Our room was light and airy with comfortable beds that had some spotless bed linen on them. As it weas a sea view room we also got a balcony with a couple of plastic chairs. Our stay coincided with the hottest, sunniest week of the year so far, so the balcony was certainly a bonus!! The bathroom was adequate, with clean towels every day.
The restaurant was large but had enough staff. Personally I don't like ordering my evening meal whilst having my egg and bacon, but I can understand why they do it. This method not only stops some food waste, but makes the service in the evening more efficient. The food quality was adequate but don't expect gourmet meals as you are not paying gourmet prices. We never came away from the dining room hungry. The choces were good and the food always hot. Tea or coffee in the lounge afterwards.
We didn't go to the entertainment as the weather was too good to miss even in the evenings. If you enjoy your holiday Bingo fix you can get it every night about 8.30.
On the whole, a value for money hotel that I would cetainly stay at again. Enjoy!!
