8/10 Very good

Hotel is very good, but walls are extremely thin. Could hear parts of conversation next door, plus noisy children running around. Tried to move rooms, but the hotel was full. Everything else in hotel was good, apart from access to room was through a function room. This was occupied on Saturday evening, so access to room was from walking outside and around hotel and in via a fire escape door.

Nice hotel
Very nice location and next to the beach and Kingsgate Bay Sea Arch. Although the hotel is aged but general condition is good. I can see some staffs have passion but some not so that the comments are at two ends
