Awful

Review by nicola n London, United Kingdom

It’s been quite some time since i’ve had the unfortunate opportunity to book into a hotel that looks as if it is closed for maintenance. Still using the excuse of COVID-19 a lot of the areas of this hotel are either closed for maintenance or just not clean hence not being open. Most maintenance jobs all over the hotel have had quick fixes as opposed to dealing with any issues. In my opinion this would be a perfect place to stay if you are working in the area and need somewhere cheap to stay if you are not concerned about safety or cleanliness...

Our room door looks as if it was held together with sawdust and wood glue, there was a nail sticking up from the floor which caused an accident with my family, my son had repaired the connection of a lamp and a extractor fan hood of the kitchen before we even unpacked the room has been cleaned but not to a high standard. We had booked for five days but stayed overnight then left. Some llight fittings are not working the curtains are melted dirty and full of mould. Some balcony glass rails creak as you hold them. In the 24hrs we stayed we didn’t see a single member clean ANYTHING! So much for worrying about Covid19. Throughout the hotel you can see patches of bubbled paint where moisture and mould live under the paintwork of ceilings, cupboard doors are rotting from the bottom, you can find broken sharp tiles and smashed windows between the bar area and the inside pool. The inside pool had a notice saying it was closed because of COVID-19 however lots of work needed to be done to this pool for it to open so I guess it’s not really COVID-19 at fault. There are some positives- we were placed in room 404 which had a polite Seaview, the choice of English channels is good, The mattresses (although firm) are comfortable and there is a decent sized fridge and freezer inside the room kitchen although dated worked well. Be warned there are many steps to the outside pool so people with reduced mobility should not care if they intend to use the outdoor swimming pool. Overall I would not class this hotel as a four-star I would class this hotel as a two star, at the moment there is just too much maintenance and repair work to be carried out to even improve it to a three star. I visit lots of hotels and just this year have visited 8 and have 3 more to review before returning home until Aug-Oct. It’s a strong no from me. thank you but no thank you. Next door are the Alfagar chain hotels all are absolutely amazing and in the same price band.

The most awful place ever. No kettle or air conditioning no sea view. Cockroaches in apartment...

Got moved to room another the same. Safe didnt work. Smoke alarm hanging off ceiling. Away from everything and place filthy. 2 men on reception miserable and unhelpful. It was 1pm slept that night. And left after seeing the awful breakfast. Went and found a decent hotel. Just dont waste time or money.

Enjoyable stay

Stayed here last week with my husband, teenage daughter and her friend. We were apprehensive after reading reviews but found our stay most enjoyable. Great location with easy walks to the beach and town centre...

Great little supermarket about 7 mins walk away with everything you need. Overall we would return to this hotel and location.

Old and abandoned

I don’t recomend this hotel. It is very old and the air conditioning doesn’t work. Seems like it stops at the ages 90s and it was never invested in any improvements...

We booked in other hotel and they said we had an up grade to this one 🤣, just because it is more expensive, but people pay more just because the location, the room is not good and comfortable.

Don’t stay here!

My mother and I stayed a week at this hotel for a leisure holiday. Once we arrived at the hotel we were rudely greeted by the receptionist who was an older woman, she clearly didn’t care or provided much help. Once we entered our apartment we noticed a sewage smell but didn’t think much of it...

We noticed gurgling noises coming from the bathroom, found it strange but again didn’t take much notice. My mother was cleaning the bath/shower before going to take a shower but heard a gurgling noise and suddenly brown stuff came flushing out of the drain hole. To put it simply sewage came up our drain into the bath/shower, the smell was horrendous and we couldn’t shower for our remaining days. We brought it to the attention of staff but nothing was done. I would provide pictures but it’s too gruesome to show. We also ran into the issue of all of our valuables getting locked in the safe, the lovely manager came up and helped us with that issue. There is some lovely staff here, only for that one receptionist. We were not happy with our stay, these issues did affect our holiday. I would not recommend staying here. Some serious work needs to be done.
