Not recommending..Extortionate price £174 per night, 1960's decor, Excellent Sea View,

We went on an Easter friday.

First impression, hotel reminds you of the older generation hotel where décor is floral wall papers, hotel rooms still use actual keys (instead of card key), takes you nostalgic back into 1960's or very old fashion bed and breakfast feel (except the building obviously very much larger in size). Receptionist greeted us in a professional manner, told us breakfast was between 8am - 9:30am (bit narrow time spread. I would expect longer period like 7am - 10am). Then she asked if I would stay for dinner at the restaurant -I said I weren't sure yet as I haven't seen the menu (and I wanted to go out to the beach and see what's outside ) but the receptionist said will call our room at 6pm to check. (apparently they call every room to check -ok something not I am used to )

Room - wow - excellent sea view. But that is about it, for £178 per night, you get the sea view , and sea view and sea view. The room has décor of 1960's including old skirting board with furniture to match, no air conditioning , no spare plugs for your latest mobile phone chargers (ok I am supposed to be on holidays but I still want to keep my phone on charge so my children can contact me should they need to). I had to unplug their television set and radio set so I get two spare plugs to charge phones for both my wife and I. Bath room is clean but no cleaner than a travelodge (travelodge probably has newer basin, toilet, bath sets), does come with nice toiletries. The shower however was miserable, I expected full power shower like in any half decent hotel, but this shower was dripping with water (ok I am exerggerating abit) instead and temperature fluctuates. The whole hotel including rooms has free Wi-Fi but very very weak..very slow. Sleeping - bed is nice and firm so can't really go wrong, so windows slightly opened (as I like some slight fresh breeze to come into room since there are no air conditioning), lights are off, and you close your eyes in bed, you then realised that there are 2 huge problems: the walls are so thin I can hear (slight) banging and clanging next door (I don't want to imagine what it is!) and the bath panels are so loose that it just makes another (different) clanging noise. So what was not noticeable at first because I was watching the TV suddenly became an orchestra by the time I turned off everything in the room. Sleeping wasn't really possible as I am a very light sleeper and wake easily on slight sound. So even though there was final peace next door but I couldn't stop the repetitive clanging noise in the bath panel in the ensuite. It was quite a long night. Breakfast - a serviced breakfast, with a nice long list of usual choices of breakfast from cereal, porridge to smoked salmon , haddock, eggs benedict and full breakfast. Service was great, we were offered tea/coffee and then toasts then cereal/ fruit salad before servcing our main breakfast . My wife had egg benedict which was nice (can't see how you can go wrong with that ) and then I had the full English breakfast - bacons were lovely none overdone, thick and juicy which is how I like it, however the hash brown was too dry and so was the one sausage (there was only one sausage!) - they were both obviously placed under the heater for too long. Overall if it was a B&B and cost less than £100 then I would give it a four star as the view on its own deserved 2 stars alone, however given this was meant to be a 3 star hotel and I paid £178 - I expect far more for it compare to other hotels I stayed for lesser price . So sorry I won't be returning - no way not for that price its extortionate !!!
