The hotel is undergoing refurbishment and this was evident from the new double glazed windows in our room, which incidentally provided fantastic sea views. The room itself was large and clean, but very dated (think an elderly relative's spare bedroom) but the owners clearly acknowledge this and are working on it. It was fairly well equipped, with a kettle, shower gels and shampoo etc. The mattress was very soft, so wasn't very supportive to sleep on. Service was great, we received a very warm welcome, and breakfast was quite good, with a vegetarian option.
The biggest negative and let down, was how much noise could be heard from the neighbouring bedroom - it sounded like a party was going on, complete with loud music! Thankfully it stopped by about 10.30pm, but it demonstrated how poor the sound insulation was in the otherwise lovely old building. It was a good value stay in a good budget hotel, but your stay just depends on who your neighbours are!
