8/10 Very good

Over nighter
Receptionist informative and very pleasant. Room comfortable and clean. Breakfast, plenty of choice but a bit disappointing. Alot of the cooked food was, at most, tepid if not cold. My bacon was tough from being left in heat too long. Not a good way to start my day.

Truly awful
Hotel is dated. Not clean. Needs refurbished. The shower is like a water canon. Not for the faint hearted. The wall was half papered. We got an 11 am check out. House keeping was chapping at 9am, hoovering outside the room early. Just awful The lady on reception was nice and helpful I would never return and never recommend it
Very slippy outside
Half papered wall

Better days !!
The hotel has seen better days and needs major investment to restore it to its former glory The Art Deco exterior and interior require major work. Some of the interior paintwork had been touched up however this had been done very badly and flooring curtains carpets and hand rails were smeared with white gloss paint all adding to the general feeling of being run down and uncared for! The lift was broken this wasn’t helpful as I have a heart condition and I struggled with the stairs . Our allocated room had seen better days and the noise from the extraction unit from a nearby restaurant was deafening but to be fair the receptionist we were promptly offered a choice of 2 alternative rooms . We opted for a room with a view to the harbour but this necessitated me struggling with another 2 flights of stairs !! The beds were comfortable and the linen and towels were clean. The shower worked well . The bathroom was clean and had been painted however the general appearance was spoiled again by smears of gloss paint on the flooring which any reputable painter and decorator would have removed . Breakfast was good and plentiful . Staff were friendly and helpful I think possibly to cover their embarrassment at the state of things . What a shame for this grand old building and the staff who work there ! Not to mention the guests ! In a strange way we are drawn to go back and see how things have worked out!

Budget hotel, needs upgraded
The reception was very friendly and efficient. The location of the hotel was really good. Sadly it’s run down and in need of an upgrade. The wall in my room was only partly wallpapered for some reason. The room was well equipped with tea/coffee and toiletries and was also clean. Not sure you can expect more for the price to be honest

2/10 Poor

On arrival the manager was very jovial and standoffish . He gave us our key and off we went to our room when we got to our room there was only one bed we had asked for a double and a single as our son was with us . I went to change our room and the manager was coming up on the lift with another key which was fine , he took us to the room which he had to knock incase someone was in which was alarming in its self . There was no sea view but promised to change us over in the morning , on the morning my partner went to the front desk and the young girl who was pleasant said that it would not be a problem come back in and hour and the too Will be changed , we went for breakfast and came back she said it would be an hour so we went about our business and on arrival back at the hotel the manager took us to one side and said it wasn’t possible to change rooms or a refund . Which would have been fine if we hadn’t paid for the sea view on the first place , he offered an extra night which wasn’t feasible as we were both working the next day , totally ruined the feel good factor of why we were there to enjoy ourselves. I would give this hotel a body swerve and pay a bit more extra for somewhere else . Trust me I’m doing you a favour.
