I couldn't believe how run down it was. The room smelled strange/dirty and the walls were so thin there was even a curtain in front of the divider. The wooden panels weren't even pained, carpet grotty, uncomfortable bed & I got bitten for the first time in my 2 weeks on the island.
The nearest shop is a Tesco in a small shopping centre, a 15 minute walk down a busy road. It's near to the beach but it's not accessible.
The staff tried to be friendly but only one spoke English. I could get out fast enough.
