We really enjoyed the dinner we had in the hotel restaurant. Our waiter, Andre was fantastic.
Our room was in dire need of an overhaul. The drapes and bed hangings were faded and ragged.
staff-attentive,very helpful with regard to disability.well run restaurant
room problems-no fresh towels during our stay,no fresh drinking glasses during our stay
Size of the room - we booked a family room for 2 adults and 2 children - space really helps with young children. Breakfast included fish options which was a bonus as we don't eat pork.
Sky TV would have been appreciated. Bathrooms could do with modernising.
1. the sea view, 2. the architecture of the sea front side of the hotel 3. a lot of space in the room
the bathroom equipment, the oldfashioned uncomfortable two taps, no place for placing what one needs there, the guilding of the taps doesn't make up for the missing modern bathroom comfort, from the bed you have no way of switching on light in the dark safely
The room size was very good
Staff were not overly helpful. I asked on arrival that I was going out in the evening & would not return until around 1am. I was told that the doors would be locked however to ring the bell & someone would let me in. I did this however it took 15 mins for someone to open the door. The temperature outside was freezing.
the comfort and cleanliness of the room and excellent breakfast
Sea front location and ease of (free) parking directly outside the hotel. Restaurant staff were wonderful -menu was fabulous.
Seafront location, view of sea from room
Scant on-site parking bed mattress needs replacement — springs coming out breakfast scheduled not early enough for me to eat and drive to a meeting Maitre d'Hotel at breakfast on 01 July 2007 was rude A 21st century hotel needs a fitness centre
large spacious rooms, good position, classical feel
Bedroom windows need cleaning outside and your breakfast staff were clueless inasmuch as I do not think any of them spoke English and we had to ask coffee, toast, glasses, plates etc. They had to have a 'Manager' shouting at them every moment - hardly relaxing.
The room was huge!, the staff were excellent and really helpful and the breakfast was certainly worth getting up for.
I did not realise that the hotel was so far away from the town centre, as we got a train down we found we had to either walk quite a distance or get public transport, but it was not that bad.
