Stayed here 2-6th April 2012. It was not a good experience. Basically.....
Bedrooms rundown, dirty, not maintained at all. Ditto the rest of the hotel. My bedroom carpet in particular was covered in grey hairs!
Staff difficult to find and did NONE of the things asked of them such as - can i have a bath towel/ my tv fixed/ radiator turned down...vey basic requests!
The dining room carpet was covered in crumbs, we had the same tablecloth all week. The waitresses had too many people to serve and our orders were mixed up EVERY day. The cutlery, crockery and glassware were in need of a deep clean and some were very chipped and unuseable!
The bedding was very old and thin, the bed uncomfortable and I just couldn't wait to be in my own bed again...not how you want to feel on holiday!
I am happy to stay in budget hotels. This isn't a budget hotel it's a dirty, rundown, uncared for building which shouldn't bear the name hotel.
Plus my brother and his girlfriend contracted norovirus during our stay, we don't blame the hotel but maybe so many people wouldn't have contracted it in the hotel if the hygene standards were higher! My room wasn't cleaned or even touched all week (apart from the bin being emptied)...the bin incidentally was covered in dubious looking (sick??!!) splashmarks!!!
The location of this hotel is highly desirable but that's where the desirability ends! As for 'slander' (??!!) this is merely my opinion (and the opinion of MANY others!!).
If you do visit the Sea grove...good luck!
