We were a little late arriving on a friday night in February, all the carpark spaces were full (three cars deep) and also the free seafront (off season) parking was taken. Kindly the receptionist gave us what turned out to be the Directors space....
We felt guilty about our lateness and didn't want to hold up the waiting staff so ate our evening meal as quickly as possible.....
The room was fairly small, but clean. The Bathroom was old and dated but functional.
The thing we hated was THE FLOORBOARDS! God they were so creaky and made such a noise!
The people upstairs kept us awake on both nights from about 11pm-till 1am.
Maybe not the Hotels fault but come on install solid floors! Sooooo NOISY!
Food was dull, but o.k. Staff very nice, but yeah dated uniforms but so what....
Didn't use the pool, but it looked quite nice....
Next morning, went to move the car, told off by member of staff '
"You can't park there, that's the Directors space" Grumpy grumpy........
Told him Lady last night said o.k, and had to pay for over-flow carpark up the road, not good.
Wanted to leave the car and walk around, but having to pay seemed MEAN.
Staff are nice, food average, decor is bland, rooms too hot, balcony shared, not recommended.
