6/10 Good

Rooms a little difficult to get to with large suitcases. Some hallways a bit tight, staircases quite narrow. Lift very small and only goes between floors so still have to carry cases up some stairs. (This is mentioned but isn’t a prominent notice unless you go looking for it on booking site) Room nicely refurbed. Good decor. Excellent sea views. However, floors really need levelling out, the room we were in and hallway floors were so wonky, we almost fell over a number of times as the floors put you off balance a bit. This also meant the bed was slightly tipped with the foot of the bed being slightly higher than the headboard end and so felt like we were sleeping slightly down hill. Bathrooms a little tired but I believe these are due for renovations. Requested iron and ironing board at front desk. Receptionist looked very baffled by request, said he didn’t think they had them but would get back to me. Sadly, never actually got back to me on that one. Rooms are extremely hot with the heating on. We turned our radiator off after first night but room still got very warm. Could do with investing in air conditioning units. Not sure sheets were every changed on the beds during our stay, just bed quickly remade it seemed. Hotel close to pier and to town centre. Everything in good walking distance. Downside to being so close to pier is the pier clock. It chimes every 15 minutes from 8am til 11pm and nowhere is this mentioned! Take ear plugs and probably not ideal for babies!

I liked that it was an old building with a lot of character, but had obviously been mostly renovated and recently decorated. Bathroom could have been renovated too but that didn’t bother us.

2/10 Poor

Awful stay. Checked in late around 9.30pm due to travelling a long way. The door was locked and I had to wait 10 minutes before I could get in. Then when I tried to get a good nights sleep I got woken up at 2am by some rowdy people upstairs having a party. This was a Tuesday night by the way! This went on until 4am and I did call reception and they did their best to tell them to be quiet. But they should have been kicked out the hotel! I complained on check out and was told the manager would contact me but never did. The room cost was £100 but £110 was deducted from my bank account!
