The guide book stated that this hotel is dated. And yes it is. The rooms and the .. well the entire place needs a complete renovation. Old tv, old fridge, old beds, yes everything is old. The service was quick (we asked for more bedding and towels), and the rooms are functional, and huge and the sea views are unbeatable. We could only book the room with dinner as that was the cheapest package available when we showed up, and I was a bit apprehensive as the restaurant looked dark and empty. The dinner was however fine, and I don't think we could have done better at the Spur (midrange chain) down the street.
Over all if you get a good price and can ignore the obvious need of renovation then you can, as I did, appreciate this hotel. My wife and I felt like we could just imagine what this place must have been like in the 1960's.
