6/10 Good

Not great !!!
The stay was a superior double with sea view, the room was very clean but there was no comfort the bed was hard and nothing in the room , like free bottled water or even a shower cap , there Wes 3 coffee sashes and 3 sugar for 2 people. Went down for breakfast and it was terrible, waited for ages to be seated, so thought just go get a seat then noticed we had to pour our own tea from big flask things which looked dirty, then this male came and shouted at me ….hey your room number… that was embarrassing…then seen it was also help yourself food …make your own toast with one toaster and a queue of people waiting to make there own toast , the food itself was dry and terrible so we just left… not a great experience for the money we paid . I can say that all the staff we encountered were lovey ..with exception of the male at breakfast. Ohh and the cleaners do a great job .

4/10 Fair

Really old and run down. Not clean (carpet, walls, bathroom). Bathroom smelled like it was burning after showering. Staff tried to help and move me to a different room. But it was in the same hallway with the staff room, and the smell of cigarette smoke was too strong for me.
