Great sea view

Pros: Fantastic sea view. Nice to be able to stand on the balcony and watch the sun rise over the sea.
Cons: The reception area is cold and not at all welcoming and there is no privacy. Your room number, room rate, payment details are announced to all.
Location: Overlooking the sea, a short stroll to the pier and a longer walk to restaurants and shops.
Arrived 25 minutes before check-in time but room was not ready. When finally checked-in, was disappointed to have room number shouted out to reception full of waiting guests. The glass door to the balcony was very dirty, both inside (fingerprints) and outside (dust and dirt.) Only one chair on balcony to enjoy the great seaview. Room was freezing cold and heating did not work. It took some time and two requests to get it fixed. It appears it was not actioned when we first reported it in person at reception. When maintenance were finally informed, they confirmed there was no heating to the room at all and told us this happens quite a lot but not sure why. There was a totally empty pump action shower gel attached to wall in shower. Restaurant staff were all helpful and welcoming. Excellent breakfast. Check out was a little disappointing, the gentleman who dealt with us was robotic rather than caring but I feel the lady who was dealing with another guest seemed more interested in guest's experience.

Lovely hotel, downside small rooms!

Location: Fantastically located for the sea front and pier. Short walk to the town centre.
Lovely hotel. Check in was a bit chaotic.....couldn't find booking, allocated is a room which was dirty, all in all could have been better but dealt with well by the check in staff. Booked an economy room which was beautifully decorated but very cramped located on the 7th floor (top), although the view of the water and pier made up for it. Breakfast included which was very well presented, plenty of choice and the cooked items were nice and hot. Would recommend this hotel.
