the hotel, is perfectly situated, on the sea front and in the center of town, great staff, and the spa is brilliant. in terms of the restaurant, the menu which changes everyday, gives you a large choise on 4 different menus.

Good location in the heart of the town and near the sea - but with no views. Quite noisy at night but to be expected in a busy seaside town. The hotel is nothing different so offers little of interest to look at but it is comfortable and clean enough - I would agree with other reviews that it could... More

This hotel near-but-not-by the sea looks good in photos, but is in reality shabby: shabby in hospitality and shabby rooms. Having paid extra for a quiet room, the best that I can say is that at least it is not by the elevator. It is one room down from the elevator. Upon check-in, I asked about parking, but was informed... More

This hotel is not worthy of its 4 star grading. The hotel is in much need of renovation and the rooms are very dated. The spa was a huge let down. In the spa area some of the tiles has cracked, the swimming pool needs a good clean and the place generally looked unclean. In our room the curtains had... More

We stayed for 4 nights - The rooms were clean and spacious. Our room was on the 1st floor looking over the main enterance. We could hear the crowd in the bar nearby every night and also the teenages who use the out side of the hotel as a skate park @ the w;'end........So please request a room with either... More

Stayed at this hotel spa with my mom who experienced the spa treatments while I enjoyed the area. The hotel staff was very courteous and very helpful with everything. The hotel is decently renovated with a few quirks here and there (slow elevators, water leaks in the hallway under the glass ceilings). Rooms are of decent size and comfortable with... More

Great Hotel and location , unfortunately they don't let children in the Spa....they now state you have to be 14, yet they don't advise this on any of the web sites that they advertise through ...such as Booking.com ...who incidentally take no responsibility for anything on their webiste as they put all resposnibility on the hotel. Shame.

The hotel is ideally located within the town. On the beach, and just a short walk to shops and restaurants. The view is great looking out across the ocean. Check in was efficient where you are provided with a plastic bag with swimming bonnet and spa sandals. The bedroom was small but sufficient with safe and basic mini bar with... More
