Stayed here Sepember 2014. Location is excellent. Room was supposedly "superior with sea view". Yes, you could see the sea, but I'm not sure about anything else. The window was wired shut, and the view was partial at best. Can't quibble about the bathroom, which was modern and well fitted. The room itself was a throwback to the 80's with... More

Position really good right on the harbour with the ferries and other craft on the move all the time. restaurants close by including a seafood place(separate report) that was excellent.

The internet was unreliable, the water pressure was pretty pathetic, and the elevator was really small and slow. The staff were very helpful, and when we mentioned going on an all day excursion offered us a bagged lunch for 6£. The breakfast was pretty good.

Stayed here for two nights in September, it's an old hotel under going some upgrading to the rooms, no complaints, great location, great room, good breakfast, with friendly staff, there's no frills with this hotel but it's a sure safe bet. We will be back.

We booked a room "with sea view" and paid extra money for this while booking, but when we arrived, we were assigned a room without sea view. When we complained about this, we were moved to another room with windows viewing the bay and harbour. There are rooms with doors and small balconies which have a much larger sea view:... More

The food was excellent we were surprised as normally when you go on a coach holiday you get a set menu for your tour but at the Coumba we had the normal a la carte menu which... More
