My wife and I stayed here for a night as we were visiting relatives locally. We stay in this area regularly and thought this might be a good mid-range place to stay, sadly we were disappointed. Upon arrival the building is currently clad in scaffolding, we tried not to let this put us off. The lady who met us was... More

We were given a wonderful welcome for our one night stay. We had a very early start the following morning and the lady was all smiles and even prepared a packed breakfast for us to take away. The location is great for the shuttle , it's right opposite the beach and 2 minutes walk from lots of shops and restaurants.... More

In april we stayed with kids for one night: two clean and nicely decorated rooms. We appreciated the couch in our room very much. The Hamlet Hotel is a friendly accommodation and services a good breakfast. We enjoyed our short visit!
