Hotel was fine, room a little dated but ok , breakfast excellent and staff very pleasant. Great for the money. Really central for shops and tower. Only a short walk to the beach. All sorts of restaurants within easy reach. Also great clubs around for older people who enjoy a wee night out.

Overall it was better than I expected and you have to remember that you get what you pay for! The staff are pretty laid back, not really any sign of a uniform... The location is great with a...
