Over nighter
Receptionist informative and very pleasant. Room comfortable and clean. Breakfast, plenty of choice but a bit disappointing. Alot of the cooked food was, at most, tepid if not cold. My bacon was tough from being left in heat too long. Not a good way to start my day.

Truly awful
Hotel is dated. Not clean. Needs refurbished. The shower is like a water canon. Not for the faint hearted. The wall was half papered. We got an 11 am check out. House keeping was chapping at 9am, hoovering outside the room early. Just awful The lady on reception was nice and helpful I would never return and never recommend it
Very slippy outside

Better days !!
The hotel has seen better days and needs major investment to restore it to its former glory The Art Deco exterior and interior require major work. Some of the interior paintwork had been touched up however this had been done very badly and flooring curtains carpets and hand rails were smeared with white gloss paint all adding to the general feeling of being run down and uncared for! The lift was broken this wasn’t helpful as I have a heart condition and I struggled with the stairs . Our allocated room had seen better days and the noise from the extraction unit from a nearby restaurant was deafening but to be fair the receptionist we were promptly offered a choice of 2 alternative rooms . We opted for a room with a view to the harbour but this necessitated me struggling with another 2 flights of stairs !! The beds were comfortable and the linen and towels were clean. The shower worked well . The bathroom was clean and had been painted however the general appearance was spoiled again by smears of gloss paint on the flooring which any reputable painter and decorator would have removed . Breakfast was good and plentiful . Staff were friendly and helpful I think possibly to cover their embarrassment at the state of things . What a shame for this grand old building and the staff who work there ! Not to mention the guests ! In a strange way we are drawn to go back and see how things have worked out!
