went to parkside between 12th+26th oct. having stayed in other 3star all inc in the past was not expecting the hilton. i was there at the same time as some of the other reviews and in all fairness would like to point out the one review is a bit bias, as the person who wrote had returned to the hotel to see her waiter boyfriend met on a previous holiday so she is unlikely to tell the full story of the hotel. the review by william is far more accurate. the food was basic as expected but cold,tasteless without even a microwave for hotting it up. the 2slice toaster was dangerous as was the grill used for making toasties. mould on feta cheese unacceptable, food ln bain maries left uncovered with flies by it unacceptable, waiter resting his head on opened bain marie one morning cos he was tired unacceptable, bread covered by the sam stained ragged cloth for 2 weeks unacceptable, fire exit on our landing blocked by cleaners large trolley unacceptable, stairs/steps not adequately lit and without propa hand rails, unacceptable, one night the bar staff switched of all the bar lights and just walked away at 11.20pm leaving the patrons sat in darkness even tho it was spose to be bogof cocktail hour btwn 11+12, choclate spread caked round the bowl and not removed for 2weeks unacceptable,plastic cups used for orange juice in the morning smelling of previous nights drinks or with lipstick on rim unacceptable, the list just goes on and on, and beleive me it is all true.on the last 3days of our holiday their was a gr8 improvement in the food and attitude of the staff this was due to the arrival of some turkish dignatries, outcame the olive oil, table clothes, glasses, hot food etc. it might have been the end of season but we had paid our money and expected to have the respect that any paying customer deserves what ever the star rating. we also found the rep very unhelpful who only seemed to say well it meets thompsons required standards, omg if thats their standards i will defo not be booking with them again. on the plus side we met some lovely people and have made some nice friends, the beach is amazing. we also found kiss bar in old side and woul recommend it to anyone wanting a gr8 night in a friendly atmosphere, with gr8 cocktails. also when we booked the holiday it was not pointed out by the thompson agent that the hotel is totally unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems and that the short walk to the beach is approx just over a killometer past the local rubbish dump. i would certainly not recommend this hotel to anyone, i am not a fussy brit but i have holidayed in spain lanzarote and jamaica and no what to expect from a 3 star establishment, and parkside hotel deserves a one star max, mainly because of the regular cleaning of the rooms.x
