Not good this time
Can be a bit hit or miss with this place some rooms are fine others are not due to noise through the walls (loud Americans)and various fans and extractors being loud. Also the shower was very poor. All in not worth £100 for a night.

The heated towel rail in the bathroom did not work and could not be fixed by two staff. The bedroom radiator was not working. The lift is ancient!

Very central and friendly
Nice hotel, we only stayed for one night but staff were very friendly. Room was small but very clean with sea view. Good breakfast and reasonably priced. This is an old hotel but has character. Will definitely stay there again.
