The Hotel is situated midway along the promonade and is more or less in a position where you get a decent view of the whole of the bay/beach, that is if you have a sea view room.
On first appearance on arrival the hotel looks a bit run down paint work wise, and the car park is 'uninviting'. The reception area looks dim, but is brightened up by the staff who were quick to book us in and make us feel welcome.
We had room 315 which gave a sea view. On the whole the room was perfect, it was just a shame that the bathroom did not do the room justice. The toilet is situiated to face the bath, and it would have been better facing the dor, thus more room to 'reside' so to speak. The bath panal was in need of repair; the inside of the door was showing signs of 'uncare' and needed to be looked after. The hand basin worked fine but the water took ages to drain away. In fact it was the state of the bathroom that stops me giving the hotel 5*s.
The staff were great in the bar, restaraunt and elsewhere.
We had breakfast each morning and the choice was more than enough; presented as well as can be, and the food was very, very good. We had two evening meals in the restaraunt and the food was top class in preperation, presentation and how it was cooked to our order. Well worth the money.
Only bad notes are, as mentioned in regards to the bathrrom in 315 not being up to scratch; also the nightclub did get a bit noisy in that people going home were really to loud, and perhaps they need a decent reminder that people are sleeping in the rest of the whole hotel.
Parking. The car park gets full quickly and I suspect it is becasue of the Casino part of the hotel, and the nightclub. I think people staying should get prioroty parking. In a nutshell, get to the car park early, otherwise struggle a bit in parking.
Well worth staying there again though. less
