We stayed here for one night whilst awaiting our ferry back to the uk. Having stayed here on a previous occasion we knew it was a reasonably priced hotel. It is a large hotel, fairly modern with generously sized rooms. Our car was pretty well loaded so it was important to us to have a hotel with private parking. This... More

Just back from a 5 night stay at this hotel, breakfast and evening meal included, everything was very good, clean rooms, excellent food, I was part of around 140 motorcyclists attending a motorcycle rally which was run from the hotel, I had no complaints and would stay there again. The hotel is situated near a great beach and a 1... More

Stayed here for one night as ferry docked at 6pm. Worth paying €12 for the underground car park as no spaces near the hotel as there was a bikers rally going on with around 100 bikers (and their bikes). All staff were friendly from reception through to restaurant. The fixed price menu was very good value for money €20 for... More

Really impressive hotel with nice rooms, a big bed and a big shower. Cleaning several times a day if needed and nice cleaning personal. BUT I expected a lot more from the staff of a 4 star hotel. They only spoke broken English but at least they were nice enough.

Can I first start by saying at least the hotel was clean and in a great location HOWEVER I would never stay here again and would advise you to look at other accommodation in the area! The staff were simply rude and unhelpful. When checking in other than asking for the booking name he simply gave us a key and... More

If you go there with lower expectations of a four-star hotel, you'll have a very pleasant stay. The bed is not the most comfortable, compared to higher end Hilton/Marriott chains, the overall decor is outdated, and noise level is a problem at night if you don't tightly close your windows. On the other hand, location is great (just a 2... More
