Hot rooms!
The hotel is ok. Quite old and needs updating. The rooms have no air con. The windows in the rooms only open a little bit, they have restrictors on them. So its impossible to let cool fresh air in during the night. I can honestly say that even tho it was hot weather, i have never stayed in a room that was so hot. It was almost unbearable. This is the sole reason i wont go back to this hotel. The food and bar area and reception is all good, but in warm weather the rooms are ridiculously hot.

2/10 Poor

Worst hotel experience I’ve had
Unfortunately one of the worst hotel experiences I’ve had. Can’t believe I parted with money to stay here, never good when you are dreading returning to the room after a day on the beach. Room carpet dirty and worn through, bath tub grubby, tv didn’t work, tired tired room, silverfish crawling around the floor. Breakfast was unimpressive with little choice and overcooked sausages, and the coffee ran out 45 mins before the end of breakfast. This hotel needs a complete refurb and shouldn’t charge these prices until done. The gentleman on the door at breakfast is a credit to the hotel but you could tell he was used to hearing complaints.

The Heat
Staff were really nice and helpful, just the heat of the room drags it down imo, it was like sleeping in a sauna, very sweaty and uncomfortable
