4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We arrived late on Wednesday evening from the Airport. Easy find the Hotel. The Reception staff were lovely even at that late hour. Our room was spotless and we had a sea view. We walked the beach front the next morning and came back into breakfast at 7.45. The breakfast was fabulous and plenty of everything. We used the hotel... More

Just back from 3 night stay our room was comfortable, but it overlooked a very messy roughly maintained flat roof from both windows, curtains remained closed throughout our stay on side window. I would have expected better considering price I paid. Did mention to a receptionist, casually said it would be noted for our boys to fix. Otherwise good food... More

Stayed here during the week just got back yesterday. While it's lovely and very relaxing and staff are friendly, if you are vegetarian you will need a picnic bag and take away menu. For breakfast the only thing on offer for vegetarians is beans and watery scrambled eggs, no mushrooms or potatoes or God forbid actual vegetarian options. Failing that... More

Noise from neighbouring room. Free wifi though but intermittent service. Breakfast room and food were very good. We used the swimming pool. A... More

Five of us stayed recently for four nights. The rooms were nice, the food excellent and the staff very friendly. What more could we ask for? We were with a coach party and all the other travellers were also happy with their experience.

Spent a night here recently and it was a nice experience. It's a fine hotel with very good facilities. Personally I think the corridors could do with a splash of colour as it looks like a prison with whitish walls and grey room doors. The rooms were good with standard amenities as expected with a hotel of this caliber. There... More
