The Esplanade
We stayed for 5 days and 4 nights. Whilst the reception and bar area was pleasant, the room and upstairs decor is in need of serious attention. Bathroom was extremely small and fixtures outdated and scruffy. The cleaning service was very patchy. From other responses to reviews a refurb is already underway.

Outdated needs Work.
Not the most friendly of reception staff, when i arrived they wanted mo to pay on arrival?, i had allready paid so spent over a hour trying to sort that mess out only for reception staff to say i might have to pay twice!!. Phoned and they kindly sorted the Hotel mix up out. The reception and the restaurant and the bar area is a lovely modern taste but unfortunately thats where it ends. I can only review our room as obviously not seen other's but our room is so outdated, the paint is flacking off the walls the bedroom celling looked like it was going to collapse at any time, the windows had all blown restricting viewing, the shower was extremely poor plenty of hot wster just not enough of it. The bed was comfy no complaints there. Woukd ivstsy here again? Yes i would but it would have to be at a good price.

Perfectly located in need of updating
Perfect location right on the sea front near to all the shops etc. The room we had was unfortunately very dated in need of re-vamping and the corridor leading to it had a damp smell.The bed was comfortable and we had 2 windows which were great during the heatwave.We had tea and coffee naking facilities in the room but the tray was not replenished every day .Towels were provided and replaced daily which was nice.The shower was grim and not suitable should an elderly couple stay in this particular room due to the height of the base.I would stay here again as i know the hotel is in the process of upgrading the rooms and for us it was just a base at night due to being an active couple out all day.
