We were first guests for the summer and hence they were still getting the place ready.There was no hot water which was a problem for us.The manager did provide breakfast for us for no cost which was a fair trade off.
The hotel is a little away from the city on a hill and has great views of the city and seaside.However getting there is a challenge with rough tracks to approach the hotel from either above or below.The photo on the booking website didn't show the approach to the hotel.
The staff were helpful as best they could although the young woman on reception didn't speak English and we communicated with the manager by cellphone a couple of times as he also worked elsewhere.
The room was of a very good size and well presented and clean.It would have been nice to be able to hang the shower head on the wall for the cold showers.
The balcony was a great addition to the room and the views to the city and beyond were great.
The rate we got through a website was very good and so we got excellent value despite the lack of hot water and the road problem in getting there.
A lovely clean swimming pool was a bonus.
