Unfortunately this hotel was so overheated (at the end of July) most of the guests spent any spare time outside! It was difficult to open windows because they were the old sash type and there was no through draft because the air filter in the bathroom needed cleaning out. The Bathroom stayed warm all day & all night. We noticed on the 2nd day that the radiators in the corridors were on full 24 hours a day- no wonder we were frazzled! We were lucky that we weren't sat next to a radiator in the Dining room because one of the guests burnt her arm 3 times during her stay! The food was very good- lots of choice and well cooked. The rooms were clean and comfortable-just too hot. The staff in the Dining Room were very helpful and we were surprised to be have orange juice or water provided with our Evening meal. Trying to toast bread in the mornings was another matter because the toasters (2 provided) were so SLOW....the queues soon built up. It pays you to go early for breakfast or the food runs out.
The Entertainment happened on 2 of our 4 nights stay. The first singer was good but his songs were so old.... The second singer was Jimmy who was very entertaining and allowed audience participation with tambourines- hilarious! We really enjoyed that evening.
Our room was opposite the Aquarium and we had a wonderful view of the sea but the sea-lions opposite often woke in the early hours and as they had access to their outside pool, we could easily hear them! It was good to watch them during the day though.
If it was practical you need to take your own fan, a toaster that doesn't take all day and a T.V. lead that is long enough to get good reception to the Ariel or you'll only be able to receive 2 BBC T.V. channels! We were given two small packets of biscuits every day though!
