After reading several reviews about the Hotel rooms, I was dreading being in a room overlooking the car park and especially the road noise - I had a lovely room, overlooking the carpark but also had great views out to sea, the traffic noise was NOT as bad as some people were making out, my room number was 614 so I was smack bang in the middle.
Upon arrival, we were greeted at the reception and were told to go straight down for dinner as we got their at roughly 8:30pm.
The room was clean and tidy, carpets weren't all that bad - few stains here and there. I do agree that the Hotel is looking a bit dated, but it wasn't a problem at all.
The food was outstanding; quality wise and choice wise - there was something different on every night and the show cooking meat was to die for, red meats melted in your mouth. Also, a big choice for dessert too! Ice cream, cakes etc. At breakfast there was a massive choice toochoose from - full english, crispy bacon, spanish bacon, sausage, egg, scrambled egg and so on. There was also many different bread buns you could have too and cereal.
I couldn't fault at the Hotel at all, I came here with my girlfriend, mum and dad, brother and sister law and uncle and his girlfriend - a family group. The Hotel does have a lot of 60+ people but they're all lovely, they always spoke - even in the lift when it felt awkward being in there. I think the only thing the 60+ could complain about is how many steps there are, my calfs were burning some days!
Also on one occasion, two cleaners shouted at my girlfriend in Spanish because she'd spilt some nail glue on the bed side table, which ended up upsetting my girlfriend. One of the cleaners was very rude when confronted so Reception was rang, the man who came up was very pleasant and diffused the situation, although I still think she was quite rude towards us.
Overall, a fantastic holiday, lovely weather and lovely views - we will be coming back.
