My boyfriend and I just needed somewhere clean to rest our heads after being out enjoying the beaches & bars! A lot of hotels offer double beds, here we had a... More

WIFI is only available in the bar which remains closed till 8:30 the morning. The reception did not tell me the breakfast starts from 8:30 so I had to check it in the morning for a few times. Be aware of that there is a RUDE old guy in the bar which will tell you off bluntly when you try... More

The hotel really needs a makeover and we were bemused by the ensuite being a shower in the room itself?! The staff were friendly and the breakfast... More

We had the pleasure of staying at this hotel and could not wait to leave, small attic room with low ceilings, no shower curtain, dog hairs on windowsill, room did not get cleaned in between Saturday and Sunday and no tea, coffee replenished. Had the breakfast on the Saturday but it was so small we decided to get up and... More
