It is difficult to describe without seeing it for yourself. We used the hotel for a function, so I cannot comment on the rooms which are supposed to be nice with good views however.

Stayed for a weekend but we weren't told that there were no breakfast available until we booked in. Staff were pleasant but no-one suggested anywhere to get breakfast. Hotel web site still says breakfasts provided. Room was pleasant and the bed comfortable. Tea and coffee provided but no biscuits. Bar downstairs seems to be very "local" and not very welcoming.

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
