Friendly and helpful staff considering it is a 'larger' hotel. Its not a cozy and intimate place, as it is a newer lower rise structure with modern amenities. Rooms and clean, modern, spacious and very comfortable. Reminds me of business type hotel. On vacation travel we like to get lost in the mystery and history of a place - that doesn't happen here. That said its very comfortable and good location with easy access to the old town, restaurants, pubs and minutes from the beach. Its a bit pricey if you don't spend much time in your room or at the property - and chances are you won't if you are on vacation to explore.
