This was a reasonable hotel and we had a comfortable stay but I would not return. There was a strong disinfectant smell which greeted us.

Very pleased with our sea-view room. Room was well presented and clean. Room included TV, Iron and ironing board, hair dryer plus free Wifi. Bath with shower over. Excellent choice at breakfast served over a long period (7-10). Reasonably priced bar. Great stay over three nights.

We stayed two nights here and were very pleased with room facilities and friendliness of the owner. The room was a fair size and the bed comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities were good with biscuits. The dining room has fabulous views and breakfast good with plenty of choices.
