Default Dinas Dinclle Beach Hotel - 25-09-2010, 20:15

It took me a while to realise that the photo from the holiday cottage was the same as the hotel just up the road:

Original (no date), but just look at the size of the staff:



And the modern:

Chimneys gone, windows changed, different balcony, different doorway, smaller staff:
