My wife and I last stayed here on 22-25 June 2012 and this year was our 9th visit. I decided that last year would be our last but my wife decided otherwise The comments I made then unfortunately still apply as NOTHING has been done to rectify any of the defects..
We had the same rooms,124 and 208 and the rooms still had the same problems.
Room 124 still had a broken bath panel, loose tiles, u/s heated towel rail and useless door knob and the window was still filthy. There were two additions. The chair now has the stuffing hanging out underneath and the basin plug is no longer connected to the chain.
Room 208 has had one change. The masking tape round the window has been removed so it can now be opened but as there was a howling gale outside there was a persistent slight sea breeze inside.
My wife and I are not masochists so why do we keep going back ?
The location is fantastic and there is no need to pay an extra £5 /night for a designated parking slot as there is a large free car park.
The lift for the disabled at the side of the entrance does work but it isn't easy. But if anyone has a problem help is at hand as all conversations in it are heard by the receptionist who will immediately come to your aid. She doesn't even make you feel like an idiot for being stuck.
As usual all the reception staff were friendly and welcoming
The restaurant is nicely decorated and the water stain on the ceiling isn’t too obvious. The restaurant manager does a splendid job and even gives the impression she is glad to see us, despite my comments. The food even without indulging in the over priced a la carte menu is excellent value for money. The service is first class and as most of the guests seem to enjoy eating with, and chatting to, complete strangers it's my problem that I don't.
The rooms, despite showing signs of being well past their Sell By Date, are always very clean. They were nicely decorated some time ago and the soft furnishings must obviously have made a large hole in the budget. Again in spite of my complaints we find them adequate
