Stayed at the Helaina for two nights. A lovely friendly welcome from Kerry who showed us to our room, with a lovely sea view. Very nice breakfast with gluten free toast (I have Coeliac so need to follow a gluten free diet ) The bed was very comfortable, shower fantastic. Thanks Kerry Susan Taylor

The premises were extremely clean and the decor, soft furnishings and furniture to a very high standard. Many thanks to Kerry who was very friendly, helpful and professional. Breakfast was... More

I visited The Helina for one night last night and stayed in room 3, the room with a sea view. I thought the standard was exceptional, everything was taken into consideration. We were given a parking permit for two days which gave us a car parking space opposite our room window. The breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice. The... More

We stayed overnight in the basement apartment in late November. The apartment was clean and comfortable with a well set out kitchen including nice little touches of complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate. The lounge/dining room had a good size tv, comfy sofa, armchair and 6 seater table. There was a DVD player too. I thought a little DVD library would... More

After a warm welcome and being shown round the vast basement apartment, we enjoyed a really comfortable bed, a huge sitting room and kitchen with a dish washer for our dirty crockery (as the rooms were...
