Despite being at peak season, the hotel wasn’t busy and didn’t seem to be at full capacity. Our room was clean and quiet. However, it was quite basic and lacking any ‘special’ touches e.g., only small towels and thin pillows, an uncomfortable bed, no kettle or free wifi. There was a lack of enclosed storage space and only 6 coat... More

Leaving this hotel tomorrow after a lovely 9 days. Great location only 10min walk from the beach. We enjoy dining out but the food here was so good that we availed of the dinner on most evenings. There was plenty of choice and quality was excellent. The staff were business like but certainly not rude as other posters have stated.... More

Just returned from a mini break. Hotel staff not very friendly, very clean hotel, breakfast very good, evening meal was really poor, if I was to stay again I would not stay half board, bed and breakfast would be ideal, we ended up eating out at night because evening meal was so poor, very quiet around the pool. Just the... More

I was surprised by this hotel as I expected it to be busy but it was quite quiet with no need to rush down in the morning to reserve a sun-bed as there were always plenty. The whole hotel was very clean and the food varied and of a good standard. My only gripe was there were not enough pool... More

Lovely clean hotel, and nice food, however if you want a fridge you pay extra if you want to use WiFi you pay extra. No kettle in room. 6 coat hangers in wardrobe. The woman in charge of entertainment is LOUD from 10am she has a microphone and a whistle, so don't expect to relax. 10 mins from shops and... More

I should start by saying that I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel and would certainly recommend it as a clean place to stay with excellent food. The fact that it is situated in the Old Town near the railway station is a bonus and it is only a 10 minute walk to the beach and main promenade. There... More

Excellent hotel, friendly staff. Clean rooms. Only fault was no kettle in the room and if you wanted to use the safe in the room you had to pay for the lock and key at 4 euro / day. Within walking distance of the town, small bars nearby.

Stayed for a week and found no major problems. The hotel is kept spotless by the friendly cleaners. The check in was very efficient, as was checking out. The hire of fridge and safe was a total of Thirtyfive Euros, which I thought a bit steep, but to my mind is always a necessity.If you want wifi it's twentyfive euros... More
