We received a warm welcome on arrival. We were even able to check in 3/4 hour early. The room, (7), was spacious as was the ensuite. Although a side room there was still some sea view. That's about all in it's favour. The outside didn't look particularly inviting but the inside had character. Definately in need of serious refurbishment though.
When we entered the room I noticed a loud noise that I took to be air con/fan. I was right about the fan, it was the extractor from the next room's ensuite; it was louder than our room's ensuite! There was no air con or fan, just a window. The decor was dated, especially in the ensuite and could do with a serious makeover. The matress was hard and lumpy, the pillows felt like they'd been stuffed with wads of cotton waste. In the bathroom there was no towel rail, not even a hook on the back of the door. The shower, whilst powerful enough was either scalding hot or freezing cold. It was quicker to run a bath than to regulate the shower. Whilst it was relatively clean the sealant was in desperate need of renewal, large splits and gaps all over. The people in the room next door, with the noisy extractor, left it on all night. What sleep we had was fitful at best.
Breakfast didn't really make up for it, it was average. The usual buffet style but with tea/coffee and toast to order.
A previous reviewer mentioned tight parking; the bays are very narrow. I had to climb over from the passenger's side because someone had parked so close to me I was unable to get in the driver's side!
It was a very hot day, and night, which didn't help as the room was like a furnace. Maybe it would be better in winter but I rather think the room would be like a fridge.
