Business trip this time.
LOCATION - easy to find and parking is ample for this size of hotel, plus it's free!
WELCOME at the front desk - obviously run on a limited staff model, as had to wait for the receptionist to come back from what she was doing. But that's fine, as when she did come back (<5 mins) she was very polite, courteous and welcoming.
ROOM - a box inside a box is the best way to describe it. It's simple layout with no frills, very clean, with a large comfy bed and thick duvet. A nice touch was there was no milk cartons in the room (which always taste disgusting), instead, you phoned down to the reception and they brought fresh milk up to you.
DINNER - chose to eat in the restaurant, as there didn't seem like there was anywhere else to eat in the area. The food was simple but nice enough. No atmosphere in the dinning room though.
BREAKFAST - slight oddity that they started moving tables from around me while l was eating and even though there was still loads of time for breakfast (later find out they were using the room for a tourist info meeting). Hot breakfast - looks good, poached egg was done to perfection. Hot food came very quickly, while l was still eating my cereal actually. Black pudding very dry (shame). Music playing in the breakfast room, gave it more atmosphere. Interesting they put the breakfast room at the back at the hotel, away from the view of the sea... Everything is in packets, to keep it fresh for longer dates l guess.
STAFF - actually they are all very pleasant and don't seem to be able to do enough for you.
FUNNY STORY - people on the table next to me, reported they didn't have a bath plug in their bath, so they had in improvise with their feet during the night...
IN SUMMARY - it's like a PremierInn/ Travelodge on the IOM, ie you know what you are getting. If that is what you are after, then you'll like this place. I'd use it again for business travel.
