We stayed one night over new year's eve in a standard queen room. Check in was very friendly and we received a useful little map of the area and explanation of where the shops and restaurants are. They offer free wi-fi, which is also useful, and free self-parking at the hotel's underground car park.
The room was clean and I liked the vintage photos of the hotel from years ago, which gives the place a bit of character.
The hotel is right across the beach and about a 5 minute walk from a street with lots of little shops and restaurants - very charming.
The bathroom could have done with some minor maintenance - some mould on the roof of the bathroom probably due to a lack of ventilation, and the spa bath looked a bit worn but nothing major. Enjoyed the spa bath in the bathroom but felt that they could have provided more amenities - all that was provided was a bar of soap, shampoo and conditioner, no lotion etc and the towels were pretty thin as well and not what I would describe as luxurious.
The room had a good aircon unit in it, as well as a small bar fridge (empty) which you can request to be stocked with minibar items. Also, the hotel has a number of satellite channels on the flat screen tvs in the room, which was good .
Fortunately we attended the new years eve function at the hotel but when we came up to the room before the function had ended, we were astounded by how the noise travelled into the hallway right in front of our room and into the room. The room was right above the function hall, and if we hadn't attended the function we would have been seriously disturbed by the travelling noise. No issue for us though, as fortunately we were at the event, but just be aware of this especially if staying over a weekend when there may be weddings.
Overall I would stay again, clean accommodation in a great location and we enjoyed our stay and found the staff very friendly. We had just checked out of a city hotel on the day that we checked in here, and the city hotel was 5 star, so one thing we did notice was the quality of the bed and linen (like towels and bedding) was really nowhere as comfortable as the city hotel, but this is no dealbreaker. This is a family run hotel so don't expect a chain hotel type experience - we found the hotel very charming.
