This hotel is excellent!! Staff could not be more helpful. Rooms are a good size, clean & fresh. Breakfast, buffet style is fresh. There is everything you could possibly want. You may order from the kitchen for other items, such as poached eggs. Have stayed here a couple of times and due back for a family reunion in March.
The View’s location is really great, overlooking the sea front. My bedroom was very spacious for one person! The breakfast is good and offers a good choice. Staff were friendly. All good.
The View Hotel is exactly that - a hotel with a spectacular view! Even though it was mid-December, my partner and I woke each day with an incredible view of the sunrise over the sea. The hotel was right on the front with on-street parking available just outside. It couldn't have been more convenient.
The only issue - and I'm really nit-picking here - was that there wasn't an extractor fan in the bathroom. So when you had a hot shower the bathroom and bedroom steamed up. As I said, nothing much negative about the stay at all.
Room was clean and spacious with a great view.
Most staff didn’t speak English, waited outside in the cold for 30minuites and there was no one to check me in apparently they was on room service duties. They allegedly have a 24 hour hotel reception I wasn’t the only customer waiting outside.
