If you buy a 15 year old S Type Jaguar for £800, you know that you're driving around in what was once a magnificent car worth over £40,000 with all the extra's and luxury that come with it. Unfortunately, it doesn't quite work the same way with this hotel. I imagine that once upon a time it was luxurious and grand, but now it is run down and tired.
The welcome is warm and the staff are nice and friendly. Our room was a reasonable size, with a clean carpet and nice wooden cabinets, though the dust around the skirtings and windows was quite thick. We had a nice veranda, looking out towards the bay which was a pleasant surprise. The bathroom is tiny, smells a little stale, has a rusty old "ladies bin", and a shower which dribbles and had run out of hot water by 9.30am - I don't like cold showers in any hotel, whether it's a two star or a five star.
Sleep quality here is dreadful. The walls are so thin that we could hear TV's from at least two other rooms along with their occupant's conversations. Everytime someone in the room above us moved, all the floorboards creaked and groaned - and when they flushed their toilet, it was like a tsunami was washing over the side of the hotel and through every room.
The saving graces? Breakfast was outstanding, it almost made up for the poor night's sleep, and the location is good. Only a 15 minute walk to The Mansell Collection in one direction, or the town centre in the other. There are good restaurants just five minutes walk away.
