Nice reception with good receptionist.
Friendly staff were always happy, friendly and polite.
Balcony with patio doors meant we had a nice, light room.
Free car parking.
Five minutes walk to the cliff, five more to get down to the lovely beach
The not so good...
No air conditioning meant that the room was hot, even with a fan.
Breakfast was okay, but nowhere near the best hotel breakfast we've had.
The electric razor socket didn't work in our room, though it was fixed after a day or so.
The bed sloped on my wife's side, so her sleep wasn't as good as it could have been.
The bathroom was small and the door made it awkward for us to both be in it at the same time.
