First of all the I should appreciate the ambiance of the Hotel especially the sea view ! the service there was excellent ...I would even say it to be the best destination to chill out . The restaurants offer a classic taste of food.

Furthermore the receptiom would not match the Booking .com rate even though the hotel was less than half full. The hotel managment has failed to realise that some people leave the UK... More

I initially checked the hotels on Booking.com who I use for 99% of all our hotel reservations. This is an ex Novotel which the rooms clearly reflect. The rate given by... More

Stayed three nights in a large well equipped room, with bath, air conditioning, fridge, safe and hospitality tray (although this had only paper cups and wooden stirring sticks!!) Big window with a good balcony overlooking the harbour & estuary. Free WiFi in room. Food in the restaurant was very good both evening meal and breakfast. We would strongly recommend that... More
