Good location but plain and dated
Sammy is a big old seafront hotel which would look just as comfortable on a windswept English promenade; however the clientele would put paid to any illusions of tea and scones.
The hotel is popular with Chinese and Taiwanese groups, and big groups at that. The hotel looks in need of a lick of paint, with draughty corridors giving a real desolate feel. Inside the rooms things barely get better, with plain decoration and sparse furnishings. The sea view is hardly panoramic, the windows don't open and the glass is scratched and smudged. Despite the three-star services and friendly staff, you could do much better for this price.
