This review relates to our stay in room 403, which is a duplex family room. While the room is very spacious, it was also very hot despite the radiator being turned off. I assume this was due to it being at the top of the hotel.
I also need to note that upstairs one of the beds blocked the path to the fire escape, you would have to clamber over the bed to get out in an emergency. Not a great issue, but something you should be aware of.
The beds were not that comfortable but they served well for the one night stay before catching the channel tunnel. This is only a 15 minute drive away so is convenient. The location of the hotel is great, right on the beach and it was nice to listen to the waves while drifting off to sleep.
Even at the top of the hotel the wifi signal was strong and was fast enough to be able to stream programmes from Channel 4 OD. Excellent in this respect.
The décor both inside and out is looking a bit tired and I would say in need of a bit of a makeover.
With respect to car parking, this is a little courtyard area at the back of the hotel with about a dozen tightly packed spaces. No spaces were left for us, so we had to park on the roadside, which has no restrictions. The alleyway to access the car park is also very narrow.
Had little interaction with the staff, but there was some confusion on arrival which was quickly cleared up.
Overall, I would probably stay again, but only for one night before catching the early channel tunnel train, for a longer break, I would look else where. less
