We are returning guests to the Neilson Seaside Hotel, first visiting in September 2003 and then most years in between. The staff are all extremely helpful and friendly with the rooms and communal areas all well maintained and clean. The rooms are basic but nicely decorated and all air conditioned with the only criticism being that the beds were rather on the hard side, although this is of course personal preference. (All 7 members of our party did however make the same comment!).
Food quality was great as usual although at some mealtimes there was very little selection for those that didn't like spicy or heavily peppered food. This did unfortunately spoil some meals, especially when something that didn't appear to be spicy turned out to be very hot.
Bottled water was decent value when bought in 6-packs but bar prices for other drinks and snacks were rather expensive, for example soft drinks costing more than twice that from a small shop down the road. I realise this is often where hotels make their money but I did feel that the prices were a little steep given the prevailing rates elsewhere.
We experienced a few issues on non-inclusive nights when ordering from the a-la-carte menu (not receiving what was ordered or confusion over what should be included) but the quality of the food was generally very good.
As with other Neilson holidays, the activites on offer were great fun and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Seaside Hotel both in terms of the overall holiday experience and in terms of the hotel itself.
Thanks to everyone at the Seaside Hotel for making our holiday such fun!
