Had read reviews before trip so were prepared.As we were going on a coach trip we kept a open mind but yes.decor was truely diabolicle!Our room had a balcony overlooking seafront which was suberb so overlooked the fact that the tiny shower was mouldyand there were several used bars of soap lying around(and also another two when we pulled out the bed)Yuck Yuck but Balcony Balcony.Old fashioned tv only had 3 fuzzy channels and duvet and bed had definetly seen better days but we were not planning spending time in the room.When other reveiews said food was good we were quite hopeful but it maybe was good if you were used to hospital food or planned losing a few pounds.Breakfast was one sausage one rasher of bacon and one slimy egg(we opted out of the fried bread and one tinned tomato hopeing to double up on one of the other options but we had to eat a bucket load of toast instead which was in plenty!)The cutlery was so small and cheap and nasty it nearly cut into our palms so actually less on the plate meant less time holding it! There was a sweet wrapper in he corridor on Friday which was still there on Monday but we were encouraged to applaud the staff for their hard work.Who doesn't blooming work hard.!The barman said if he did not take enough money behind the bar he did not get paid-ridicolous remark-trying to make people feel sorry for him!HOWEVER!Apart from lovely balcony the hotel manager was a real character and fabulous entertainer .The people on our coach were all great fun and we got to watch the carnival and fireworks from our BALCONY!
