Like the reviewer before me, we also stayed at the esplanade instead of the Ramada. Hotel was very welcoming. Room was very nice with two large double beds and was in the new wing.
Bar was nice and cosy, no great shapes but was inviting especially with the open fire.
Only complaint I have was that the evening meal was Terrible.
Had soup to start which was fine, but the mains (I had the pork loin which was a couple of tasteless chops and my wife had the half chicken which was dry as a bone) both mains and the mash where somoothered in a horrible gravey. Deserts where cheap bought in ready made.
We laughed it off as the rest of the deal was good value and ended up going out to a take away afterwards for some fish and chips.
I had especially asked for a room away from the function room and lo and behold when we went up to our room at midnight, we discoverd that we where close to above it and had to endure another 45 minutes of blaring sounds of the seventy's before it eventually finished.
Breakfast the following morning was the usual open buffet that most hotels provide and was much better than the evening meal (which was not hard to achieve in all fairness)
Location was brilliant, right on the beach front and we did enjoy our stay despite the bad meal, which was a pity.
Would advise people if they are going to book only for bed and dreakfast.
