Hotel has actually two buildings, connected to each other via a underground corridor. We stayed in the newest part. Room was OK. Pillows and old fashioned blankets were a bit disappointing. We had a jacuzzi bathtub, and a little terrace with view on a nice isolated garden. We reserved quite last minute, so there were no parking spaces left. It was high season and the weather was excellent, plenty of people and no way to find a parking place close to the hotel.

Have just stayed here to attend a wedding and found it to be a great hotel. The breakfast was fabulous with a huge choice of breads, fruit, meats, cheeses etc. great central location for walking into town for shops or across the road to the sea front. Only one small complaint that there is no shower curtain so water goes everywhere! Great experience thankyou!

We spent one night and we were happily surprised by the room. The room was big, comfortable and tidy. The bathroom was quite big. The issue was that the main switch for the light was out of order and there was not a real shower or screen to prevent the floor getting very wet.
The location is fine, close to the centre and 2 minutes walk from the sea.
The only let down was that we could not have breakfast which we had paid for. We had to leave just after 07:00 but breakfast was only served from 08:00 and no other solution was suggested such as a box or something, as we were told at check-in that the person serving breakfast did not arrive until 07:30.

Overall, it is a lovely little hotel, but perhaps a little more attention to guest needs would make it a fantastic little hotel.

The room was big and clean. I could close the door between the sleeping area and the area where you had the tv and desk so if you want, you can hold a mini meeting there.

Bathroom was large, clean and had a bubble bath. Unfortunately I haven't been able to use the bubble bath as I was out on meetings all day and it was prohibited to use it before 8 am and after 10 pm because of the noise it makes.

The hotel itself is quite a maze, with an underground hallway to the main building.

The hotel is well located.

Room Tip: Ask for a room where you can close the partition between the sleeping and sitting area if you want t...

We spent only one night at the hotel but enjoyed the warm welcome, the room space, the cleanliness and the breakfast buffet. The hotel is located a few meters from the main road where the tramway is passing regularly. The bedroom is well isolated but there was no AC in our standard room, forcing us to open the window for the night and of course hear the first tramway of the day.
There is a free parking but quite limited outside. Apparently there is also an internal one but we did not use it.
Price was 105 € for 2 people breakfast included end of september.

Room Tip: Ask a room as far as possible from the main road.

Nice and friendly welcome at check-in. Got a deluxe room for the price of a standard room as it was the last one available. Room was nice not particularly large but not small, with a large and nice bathroom. However, for a 4star hotel and especially for a deluxe room normally sold at 130€, I was very surprised not to find any tissues in the bathroom, no hairdryer and nothing to hold the shower on the wall
( you have to keep the shower in your hand )..... Furthermore, the towels were rather small and surprisingly overused ( especially the one tu use after showering ) . A very poor quality one doesn't expect in a 4star hotel.
Great breakfast with a large selection of hot and cold items, various sorts of bread, cheese and ham, fresh fruit, ( but unfortunately nothing to keep the food cool during the whole breakfast time ). No restaurant, no bar but an intimate garden whith direct access from some of the suites.
The location is great too, just 50m from the beach with a nice residential area at the back.
All in all, a very nice hotel, modern and clean with helpful staff but a few easy improvements could make it a real 4star.
