Fabulous location but that's it!

When we arrived we were given a room in the basement, no windows or phone signal.

We asked reception if we could be moved, they said yes if we upgraded for 30.00. We spoke to the manager And he said the same. We upgraded and paid the extra. We were disgusted with the 'upgrade' .. Still no phone signal & the window was in the ceiling with a blind and a pole hanging down. The bed was like lying on a plank of wood and everybody was moaning about that.

This is a great located hotel, right by town centre and beach but nothing else to shout about. 80% of travellers are 70+, the entertainment consists of granny bingo every evening and the same cabaret couple singing for an hour. Very boring. We drank in the hotel in the evening, once we got served. We were stood at the bar for 5 mins, no-one else stood at the bar, a new customer walked to the bar and the staff served him straight away. Few bar staff were ever so rude, and check ur glasses .. Ours were very grubby. There is a terrace which is fantastic for the view but literally full of seagull muck, you can tell it never gets cleaned. The parking is really bad too, it's 3.00 a day to park but good luck finding a space.
