There was a stain on the quilt cover so we turned it over, went for breakfast, came back, they had made the bed then left, same cover on hadn't been changed,... More

Don't be put off by the morose host, we all have bad days after all. Don't be put off by the lack of parking facilities; there are many other guest houses and restaurants along the Central Promenade so the (already restricted) parking spaces get full very quickly. I stayed on a Saturday night when the parking restrictions expire at 18:00... More

An embarrassment for the residential manageress as she seems oblivious to the condition of this ageing building. It is in severe need of renovation from top to bottom and brought up to date in almost every aspect, electrical,plumbing,decoration,part wi-fi availability all need upgrading. Trailing electrical leads in rooms, cold showers, outdated decor, questionable cleanliness in the dining room and a... More

Would never recommend this to anyone. Even not to people with a low budget, because this hotel isn't even that cheap. The carpet is full of stains, there are suspicious brown stains on the walls, most supplies in the room don't work, the shower/bath is dirty... Hairs in the bed... I can go on. Just pick another hotel of travellodge.... More

The breakfast is self service and you can have toast with jam or not and cereal is also available. The hotel is situated in the middle of the... More

The location of this hotel is perfect. It is right on the beach. There are good restaurants close by. It is comfortable and clean and has a microwave and fridge in the rooms. The owner is lovely and is keen to make your stay enjoyable. Great value for money too.
