Only worth it if you get it cheap

Although travelling alone I booked a double room as I didn't want a single bed.

Manager assumed I was a couple and put me in a self catering apartment that was actually larger than my flat at home. For what I paid it was fantastic value but not worth the full price he quoted me. Great views and adequate facilities though needs updating. The board says they are open all year round but there was no central heating and fan heater provided was not enough for winter. There is a maze of stairs and corridors to negotiate that are tatty, smelly and full of junk. Two men taking turns on reception, one very nice and very talkative, one rather grumpy. The nice one told ne that his family had run the place for 43 years, which explains a lot.
