We selected this hotel several years ago because of where it is situated - we play bridge and there is an excellent Bridge Club 10 to 15 minutes walk away which meets five and sometimes six times a week.
We have been back frequently and intend to go back again - is it the Bridge or is it the Hotel?
We find the hotel adequate in every way - not over the top in anything although some of the entertainment was excellent and other not. But that depends on the taste, age, ability and aptitude of the guest in question! And my wife and I are getting on a bit.
The food is nothing to write home about either to praise or to criticise but it is good, wholesome and well presented. The dining room staff is polite, friendly and helpful in all ...
The chamber maids are hard working and effective in producing clean rooms, linnen and towelling.
The position of the hotel is excellent - right on the prom and across from the beach. And the hotel offers many facilities that would probably appeal to those younger than we are.
We stayed over Christmas and New Year and enjoyed the Gala Dinner that was laid on for each of those occasions - but we declined to very modern dancing that followed!
There was a certain amount of re-furbishing going on (we understand floor by floor) but this caused us no inconvenience as there was little or no noise. We had requested a re-furbished room and found it a great improvment on last year\'s room - double glazing is now the norm.
We are of the opinion that the hotel has a star too many, we would award it 3* but everything about it is conducive to a good holiday - our style - and the proximity of bars, caffs, clubs, shops, the Sunday market, sand, sea and sun must surely combine to give every individual of whatever age the opportunity to secure the sort of holiday desired.
Would we go yet again? Most certainly, yes. And we would do our own booking of accommodation, transport, flights and transfers. Save pounds!
