Negative Reviews


In serious need of refurbishment.

A number of guests comment that the hotel is in serious need of refurbishment. Decor is reportedly tired and dated, to the point of worn carpets and stained walls. Beds and bedding seem to be old and uncomfortable, and showers are small, difficult to operate and generally in need of replacement.


Lacking in amenities.

Some guests comment that amenities offered aren’t quite up to standard. WiFi is reportedly not available in all bedrooms, and guests comment that the swimming pool closes early, preventing guests checking-in from using it that day.


Non-sea view rooms are disappointing.

A number of guests who were not given sea view rooms express their disappointment with their bedrooms. Some rooms are reportedly very small, and guests comment that rooms are overlooking the car park, kitchen extractor unit and concrete walls.
