Doesn't cut it

Posted Nov 15, 2014
Very tired decor. No sky in rooms. Offer dvd players but no dvd. Menu limited and predictable. Overall not good value for money compared to other facilities at similar rates. Won't return before major refit.

Well situated location

Posted Oct 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
Value for money...what we paid for is what we got. Walking distance to the shops and to the main strip of restaurants. Roomy for a double bed plus the fold out couch suitable for a child or two (double bed size). Unfortunately the mattress to the fold out couch was very old (were over used) so the iron frames were poking out and sore for my son to sleep on.

Great Location - poor decor

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Could do with complete redecoration throughout
Location: All Bars/Restaurants on Strand
Location was great, only a 5 min walk from bars/restaurants on the Strand. While the rooms were clean and tidy the overall appearance of the hotel was shabby. For what we paid the price was fine, but if we had paid the full price advertised I would have felt ripped off. On the few occasions I spoke to the staff they were helpful

Good hotel but quite oldish, needs a revamp....

Posted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: General comfort but nothing really outstanding
Cons: Breakfast choices and also it would have been nice to be informed the restaurant was closed on Sundays, had to resort to room service, not much choice
Definitely clean, modern bathroom but old style for everything else, mattress a bit lumpy, walls and furniture could be more joyful.
