This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was damp with wallpaper coming away from the wall in the bedroom and black mould on the bathroom ceiling - the shower didn't work until the 3rd day we were there and there was no heating on for anyone. Mould around window frames as the condensation was appalling- we were cold all the time and the beds felt damp.We sat in semi darkness for 3 hours the first night as the mananger wouldn't come and put a new light bulb in until he had finished washing up he said and then it was done with such bad grace as if we were being a nuisance for bothering him. My sister and I are vegetarians and their idea of veggie food was a quiche with gravy poured over it -yuk. Breakfast was the only decent meal although all meals were generous portions. The bar was loud and they kept the fire door between the bedrooms and the bar open playing loud music which kept us awake until nearly 1 o'clock in the morning one night. It was also further than advertised to walk to the seafront. We spent all of our time out so as not to be cold and we even ate out sometime to avoid dinner. It was like a time warp as it was so dated - like a fifties holiday camp. I have always been prepared to make do on holiday as you can't expect it to be like home but this was truly awful and I would not stay there again if it was free and I was driven there in a rolls royce.

Room Tip: Believe bedrooms upstairs were cold but not damp

On arrival you are greeted by Paul. He seemed nice enough although this was the last time I saw him throughout my stay, in fact it was the last time I saw anyone. Despite it being peak season, I was the only person staying there over a 3 day period. The bar was closed. It was creepy and felt like I was in isolation. I did not feel safe going outside for a cigarette in the evening. There was NO staff around any of the evenings I stayed. Absolute hell. Plastic sheets on the beds???? Why??? Very dated. Would not stay again.

Our five day stay at the friends Hotel was a very pleasant experience at a good value for money price. We were part of a coach party joining from many different pick up points and though arriving after a long journey, we were received in a very friendly manner and dinner was first class. This theme continued throughout our stay. We would be prepared to use this hotel.
