Cannot fault our room on fifth floor with view of sea and marina - would stay again in Room 516 although quite a walk to the lifts which were constantly busy .This room was quiet , spacious and very clean .Well stocked with nice toiletries and hair dryer . Milk stored in the fridge and a generous selection of tea and coffee. T.V channels quite limited ,was slightly reduced freeview range.
Didn't venture across the road to swimming pool -walked past the venue and noticed it was quite an old shabby building , but gym on 2nd floor of this hotel had enough machines for a good work out and the room has T.V and cold water machine.
Meals ... buffet breakfast was excellent with everything you could imagine , staff polite and attentive. Dinner was lovely but a bit of a wait to be served and 10 mins wait between courses , although muttered there was a different chef -whoever prepared and cooked ours = full marks.
Now my moans which I suppose is more constructive criticism.
Reception staff were very very polite and nothing was too much trouble but there was a constant queue so could have done with more of them . These lovely people were over worked.
The inconsistent pricing -. If you note a recent review where a guest paid £40 half board - well I was puzzled. We paid £128 , and a couple who also stayed on the Sat evening that we chatted to paid about £40 more than us , so on that note we are hoping for a friendly e-mail with a discount to entice us back as we were not the only guests to be a bit annoyed at the pricing system....yes it was Easter but we felt like we were cushioning somebodies bargain break.
However .....a really nice stay , fantastic bunch of staff . This hotel is very well run.
