Booked this hotel at the last minute after reading a few reviews on here. The hotel itself is fairly basic but was very clean and within a few yards of the beach. We didn't eat or drink here so I can't comment on that. The room we had was a twin on the 3rd floor. There's one lift in the... More

Visited on an Alfa tour. Arrived later than expected but were quickly allocated our rooms and dinner was served smoothly. The hotel is looking old but was clean and tidy. The staff were efficient and friendly. Sometimes reception was unmanned for short periods which was a bit frustrating. Food was very good and varied. The service was,on the whole, excellent.... More

After reading all reviews and seeing pictures I did not expect much, however the price we paid for a family of four DBB on a self drive Alfa travel package was excellent. Before the kids were born we normally stayed in 4 or 5 star hotels on a b&b basis and used all facilities such as swimming pool, sauna, etc.... More

I was pleasantly surprised by my recent stay here. The hotel overlooks the coast, is near to the town and harbour and other facilities. The common area's, although slightly dated are never-the-less, clean and well looked after. My double room (I stayed there on my own), was bright and clean and had sea views. Everything I needed for a quick... More

We travelled here with Alfa and our luggage was taken to the room for us. The room was clean and well kept. Checking in was very quick. Table service in the dining room was fast and efficient and the food very good with reasonable choices. Evening entertainment on 5 nights was musical, concentrating on the 1950 to 1970 and very...
