We were fairly happy with our stay, the breakfast was very nice and the staff were helpful. The location was great for the Marina. The downsides were the rooms, we were in room 201 and that puts you next to the old lifts, the cables seem to creak and grown all day and night. I would guess 101, 301 etc.... More

Location very good facilities very good breakfast very good desk staff could be more friendly. I have stayed at the hotel on 5 occasions golfing and the complimentary bus to the courses is very handy. Also very convenient to the marina which includes many restaurants which I go to at night.

We complained and were immediately moved to another room. This was slightly large, with beach view and small kitchen! WiFi worked quite well, but as the hotel got busier the reception sometimes dropped, but... More
