Recently stayed at the Hydro for an overnight stay with my husband.
Paid an extra £15 for a seaview room (which came with free scaffolding as the hotel is have a seaview extension on the groun floor).
The seaview room came complete with 1980's decor, very dated an very tired looking. Very old fashioned peach bathroom suite, very thin and worn towels.
On a positive note, the restaurant was lovely.
Would I stay here again, probably not unless I knew it had an internal makeover.
