    Room was clean , bed was comfortable. Atmosphere was friendly and welcoming . Nice seaside feel to the hotel. Lovely views of the sea.

    Room was a little cold and the heater didn’t really warm it up much but there was a storm and our room was on the corner of the building which probably didn’t help ! But overall the room was cosy and comfortable and I enjoyed listening to the storm with the sea been so close .

    The staff were very welcoming and friendly throughout our stay. The room was comfortable and warm and the bed was excellent to sleep in. It was also clean & tidy.

    We had an evening meal in the restaurant but didn’t go back for another one. The food wasn’t nice everything looked like it was cooked from frozen apart from the salad. Nothing was fresh even the fruit cocktail was tinned. It was salmon on Friday which had a nice flavour but it was very dry as if it had been sat in the warmer for hours. My partner had the chicken which he commented was very dry also and cheap tasting. No selection for a vegan at all which is unacceptable only frozen veg & lettuce, cucumber & over ripe tomatoes. The soup was ok but I don’t feel the meal was value for money. Even the cake selection seemed like it was pre frozen and were very cheap tasting. We had a fire alarm at 1am on Saturday morning which was such a mess. None of the staff new what to do all the guests were left to fend for themselves and just commune in the lobby wondering what to do. I couldn’t see anyone who was a fire martial or knew what they were doing it was very poorly dealt with and even one member of staff went and hid down in the restaurant hallway and he was just looking outside at the guests freezing in the car park. Nobody was stood showing guests where to go or what to do. This was a genuine alarm not a practice so the staff should have been on top of this but I didn’t feel secure or safe due to lack of knowledge from the staff or lack of training from the company. No one even came out to tell us when it was safe to come back in. I also noticed around 3 or 4 guests who were disabled in some way or another, so WHY were they having to walk down stairs when there appeared to be free empty rooms on the ground floor. One guest who was severely disabled seemed to be up on the second floor and couldn’t make it downstairs without being carried. Obviously the lift cuts out when the alarm triggers so they have to then negotiate the stairs.
