I stayed with my wife and 1 year old daughter for 1 night and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is right on the beach and has homemade great icecream for sale. The manager was very friendly and accomodating and the breakfast was great with plenty of options.

I've stayed in the hotel on and off for the last 3 months due to work commitments and I've had excellent meals along with good service from nice, friendly and helpful people. I'm moving to another contract but might just see Richard and the staff again for a weekend visit

We arrived really late, after 9pm but were given a warm welcome. We hadn't planned on being so late, and the owner offered to call the local Italian to find out if we could still eat there. He then asked his own chef to prepare us something, and we opted for ham ploughmanns....what we received was probably the best ham... More

A great hotel and the food was very good. There are, however, a few guests that were rather loud and used a number of swear words that were inappropriate to the hotel bar. Worst part is, it turns out they are all police officers who should damn well know better.

Room was very nice, comfy bed, ensuite exceeded expectations. Can't recommend enough, best hotel breakfast I've had to date. The beach across the road is great for a stroll at sunrise/set, beautiful setting.
