Ambassador Hotel
Disappointed ☹️
Check in was ok, however the room did not appear to be very clean. On using the shower it became clear that there was no cold water which meant that ‘very’ hot was the only option making the shower or bath unusable! In reporting this to reception I was told it would be reported and that other rooms had the same issue. The issue was not resolved by the morning! There was no apology for this, the attitude of the staff was poor offering no solution. I rarely complain or give a bad review. But cleanliness and being able to shower is a basic requirement. I was very disappointed. On a positive note, breakfast was acceptable.

We had to change our sea view room to a compact double as the heating wasn’t working and no hot water for the bath or shower

Ambassador Hotel
We had a lovely stay. The room was lovely and we really liked the breakfast room with a sea view. The opening of the pool on an evening is great! We will definitely be returning .
