A large, rather old fashioned hotel that seemed to cater mainly for coach parties. Bars and lounge areas tended to be quite noisy with loud groups.
Room was on promenade side, apparently better. However, although large and light, it was quite draughty and generally in need of a revamp. Fixtures and fittings adequate but old. Coloured bathroom suite, basic taps, shower, wrap around shower curtain in bath, etc.
Buffet breakfast was OK. Coach parties had their own function room.
Free wifi with very limited range. Didn't reach my room.
General feeling was that hotel would have been great in the 70's/80's but needs to get into the 2000's. Maybe it's clientele are happy with the way it is? This traveller would be looking for a bit more.
