Both Chris and his wife were lovely on arrival. We were also lucky to receive an upgraded room, but everything from the lounge/bar area, to our room to the bathroom was perfect. The location was great for the beach and positioned right in between "The Lanes" area and the Marina. There are so many bars and restaurants around we were... More

My husband and I recently stayed at The Square and we found the staff very friendly and the hotel is walking distance to The Lanes and lots of restaurants. We rented the downstairs suite. I will admit it needs some improvement, a new bathroom door should be installed to allow privacy. The blinds in the bedroom are very, very dirty... More

As soon as we arrived we were asked to pay for the stay? We thought this was very strange. You either take the money when booking, or settle up when leaving. Our room was very clean and tidy, and looked nice on first glance. The hotel in a word was "tired" from the letter "e" hanging off the hotel name... More
