Don't be put off by other reviews
Wasn't sure what to expect after reading some other reviews on here, but was very pleasantly surprised.
Admittedly from the outside, the rooms have a slightly Hi-de-Hi look about them (hardly surpising considering the hotel is a former Pontins), but inside the room was clean, modern and comfortable with a good size en suite and a lovely view over the bay towards Weymouth and Portland. I admittedly had paid for a "superior" room, but at such a small price difference from the standard room, it was, quite frankly, a no-brainer.
Clean bit dated but comfortable
Don't book a standard room.
These are in a seperate very tired block at the back with no view and difficult external metal stairs. FOC upgrade resulted in a nice sea view room and saved the holiday. Hotel has seen better days but the art deco style, outstanding position and helpful staff make for a pleasant stay.
Staff friendly and helpful.
Setting of hotel was lovely. Rooms were small but functional. Enjoyed staying here. Basic accommodation.
Not for us
The room was very clean but as we had paid for a superior room we did expect something larger.
There was a light outside the window which was on all night and shone through the curtains. We were unable to have any food lunchtime because there was no one in the kitchen. Overall the staff were very friendly but we felt the hotel had a holiday camp feel which was not what we were looking for.
Won't be booking again
We booked a standard room which I would describe as substandard.
It was really smelly. The receptionist was however very helpful and transferred us to a better room which was cleaner but had a broken lamp shade and we could hear a guests television playing until 2.30 in the morning. Whilst we didn't eat in the hotel we fancied a drink in the bar/restaurant when we returned from Weymouth only to be told that we could only have one drink as they were closing early due to not being busy. There was no nice lounge area to drink it in so we ended up drinking our drinks in the reception area.
After reading the reviews for this hotel (after I'd booked) I was filled with trepidation but then my colleagues and I were pleasantly surprised.
The exterior of the hotel particularly at the back could do with repainting but the hotel has obviously started by redoing the interior of the rooms. The rooms were spotlessly clean, the shower was good and there were lots of hotel accessories. We had dinner, which did admittedly take quite a long time but we were warned and it was half term , the staff were very friendly and happy to accommodate our requests. Breakfast was excellent too!
Art deco, nostalgic with breathtaking views.
dust on headbored of bed, bathroom mirror light not working shower controler not very good
bed very noisy,
very run down
On our way to our room we found the stairs to be very dirty, filthy in fact.
Then found our rooms were right next to the air con room so very very noisy, no chance of sleep. We had to ask to be relocated. The young lady at reception managed to swap some rooms around and put us in the very run down part of the hotel, at the back of the main hotel which I can only describe as an 18-30's run down Butlins holiday camp. The landings were filthy, the windows and door paper thin so could hear everything next door. One of our rooms was full of daddy long legs, there was used toilet paper in the toilet, not flushed and looks like someone had been sat on the bed so we had to request house keeping to sort out.
