Breakfast was a waste of money
The breakfast was a night mare. The few staff there were were working as hard as they could, but couldn’t keep up with the basic such as keeping the cutlery and napkins supplied, so people were waiting for knives and forks. The ‘fresh’ scrambled eggs that were just put out, were cooked into inedible tasteless, dry crumbs. And apart from the baked beans if you are a non-meat eater there was very lttle else. The croissants were gelatinous and disgusting and the toasters didn’t toast! We ear cereal but had to put the milk in mugs as the crowded buffet are didn’t let you decant the cereal and put in milk at the bar, and there were no small jugs. The coffee machine dispensed so little coffee that it was necessary to throw away half the water in the cup before the coffee was added. The staff were working very hard, but there were so few it wasn’t enough. The cooked breakfast was a total waste of money.

A pleasant and decent stay
Our stay was for 2 nights (bed and breakfast) for a family of 4 which was fine overall with a few minor hiccups - 1. Parking is limited. Best to arrive early however reception were nice enough to offer us their staff car park if there was a free space. 2. Air con machine took us a while to figure out how to work even though after we had reported it was not working the reception staff were able to work it remotely. 3. There’s only one lift (small and a little slow) to the 3rd floor 4. Hot breakfast was running low by 9am during our second morning but then again it was busier than usual with customers Location wise, the hotel is nice and quiet, easily accessible to the town centre and about 15min drive from Sandbank Beach carpark. Staff were friendly and helpful, and didn’t seem to mind us having a takeaway in the dining area. The rooms were clean although I think, more storage space is required particularly for a young family (clothes, toys, beach stuff etc)
