We recently stayed at the Summerstrand Hotel for one night. We have stayed there before and the room we got this time in comparison with the previous one is a huge improvement. The room was clean and modern. Well done!!

Stayed twice in 2014 at the Summerstrand Hotel. Modern upgraded rooms that were clean and very comfortable. I had a minor maintenance problem and this was sorted out immediately, well done. The breakfasts are very good as is the room service, in particular the steak sandwich. Beds are very good and the bathrooms are also very good. Very nice hotel
