Have just returned from a week with my wife, 2 sons (7 and 11) and my wife's parents. It has been a first class experience and would happily recommend to anyone looking for cleanliness, good food, excellent service and very good value for money. The hotel is ideally positioned for train, bus and beach and the seafront was a very pleasant surprise. The hotel's really strong point is the sun terrace which is protected on three sides and provides a perfect spot for sitting out even on a chilly day in February (we measured the temp at 29c when 'outside' it was 13). This terrace is also the Hotel's downside as it seems to attract a lot of (radical) smokers, they were mostly German so perhaps it is a cultural thing and we Brits have got used to not seeing smoking in public so much. Our room was 117 which directly looks out on to the sunterrace fantastic for the less mobile members of our party but not for my asthmatic son who had to sit in the room with the doors closed because a group of elderly women insisted on sitting by and leaning on our balcony while smoking. When asked to stop one laughed and immediately lit another!
I know this was also a point of contention for our neighbours who thought that the invasion by these less than sensitive individuals had spoiled their visit and are going to leave similar reviews in French and Danish. The management could easily solve this problem by making part of the terrace smoke free (the area by the rooms) or by putting planters by balconies to provide a small barrier. This should get 5 stars but this one area really did spoil some of our days.
