The very poor access and drive sets the scene.
Non sea view rooms have just a view of very close parked cars - and suffer exhaust fumes.
No room in bedroom for a chair, at least in room 8.
With no air-con, the summer would be grim. But, as the window frames are old, that may help.
Mould in the bathroom, .
The fried breakfast was dull, dry and in some cases, burnt.
Breakfast is only served from 08.30-0900 - unless in a busy period when you get to 09.30.
You have to check out by 10.00
As there are numerous rooms in a small area on two floors, expect noise from both above, and the adjacent room.
Wifi is only available in the breakfast room and lounge.
The two proprietors...well, no comment, other than to say he tried, and I expected her to shout out "Basil" at any moment.
Only the sea view rooms only are acceptable.
Whilst it reads good, i.e. many pets and games, most children were not attracted to them. Maybe due to the cage settings, and that the games, videos and books were old.
The breakfast staff (woman and young girl) were friendly and very helpful.
The location is very useful for Sandown.
