We have stayed at this hotel quite a few times in the past (10+ years ago) and thought we’d come back for a nostalgia trip. Now, we didn’t expect it to be exactly the same but we are disappointed with the standard we have found. We are currently one night into a two night stay

Where do I even start with this place it was perfect. We went for my partners birthday and stayed 3 nights and it was nothing but bliss. We had a sea view which was more than what we was expecting. It was the same staff who were a close nit bunch and they were all so helpful and

On arrival, we was greeted with a warm welcoming. The lady on reception was very helpful. We received a free parking permit, they even had a small pool and sauna. The room was clean, although the bed was very worn as it had a dip in the mattress and the bathroom is a wet room

Good Afternoon, We have disabled facilities e.g. ramp, lift and new wetrooms. Unfortunately, we do not have disabled toilets. We do not have nightly entertainment however, we always have music on in the lounge area with free Wi-Fi. Refreshments can be purchased from the vending. Kind Regards, Ambassador Customer Service Team

We stayed there this weekend 1st July and had the same experience. Unclean room especially the bathroom and shower. Paid £159 for our room for one night expecting a premium from what we saw on the website a d couldn't believe our eyes when we walked in. I rarely leave a bad review as I know how hard it is to be perfect when busy but this was really bad. I've read some of the manager replies saying that they are doing the rooms up soon so maybe they should consider not letting people stay in the rooms that need renovating until they are done or even charging them a lot less than what we paid!
