Not a great start to our stay - check in was fast but abrupt, no major greetings or explained anything about the hotels facilities or the schedule of activities etc. There seemed to be events going on throughout the day at the pool so a schedule would have been helpful. I got no help with my suitcase either and had to lug it up 5 or 6 steps to the lift. We were given a room on the 11th floor, there was a terrible smell of sewerage as the day went on so we complained to reception. A nice man came straight away & sprayed the bathroom and vents, the fumes of the spray were worse than the sewerage and next morning there was still a smell so I complained to reception who moved us immediately with no fuss. I was offered a room on the same floor which I refused and got a room on the 6th floor instead, this was much better and we had no issues with smell for the remainder of our trip.
Room was spotlessly clean as was the kitchen and bathroom. Theres enough for 2 people only, no extra plates/cups/cutlery. There was also a lack of plugs, one for the TV and one in a far bottom corner beside the patio door so I'd bring an extension lead. Also no bedside lockers or shelving for bits and bobs.
Very basic but you get what you pay for & for the price it was fine. Location is really good with a secure gate onto the promenade, we spent most of our time in the sister hotel next door, next time I would pay extra & stay there.
