My husband and two sons stayed here for one night as we were visiting the funfair at the sea front.
Overall it was a lovely stay the hotel is quite stunning and the 1935 roof top bar is impressive, we had a nice view from our room to the airport and runways which our 4 year old found extremely exciting! It was surprisingly quiet too.
The room was compact and nicely decorated and comfortable, my only issue was there was a lot of dust but apart from that it was good.
Breakfast was ok, not as much choice compared to other Holiday Inns we have stayed in, my only grumble is that the sausages were full of gristle and I have to say were the worst sausages I have ever had in my life!!!
Would we stay in this hotel again?? probably :-)
