Location Location Location - situated looking out over the main beach in Broadstairs (Viking Bay), the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room however was well used with wallpaper coming off in a few small places and tears in the bed, creaky floorboards etc.
We had a sea view with a bay window, when we walked in i had to clean all the finger prints and grease marks off the window and what still bemuses me to this day is why was there's a massive lamp shade right in front of the bay window stopping you from seeing an uninterrupted view of the sea, which after all is what your paying for! And where was the switch to turn it on? under the bed maybe lol
Nice location, friendly staff but in need of renovation or a much lower price.
