Sorry we stayed here, but recommended by trip coordinator. Rooms were stark, a lot of things didn't work, wake up call was 30 minutes late...breakfast buffet was good, however. This seems like an expensive way to get a bad nights sleep. Would not recommend

I booked a room with a sea view in the new block, but got a room in the back with a view of a car park and the back of Barclays Bank. There were no bottles of drinking water and no coffee or tea for the kettle in the room
