We stayed here for one night. The hotel itself is ideally situated, there is a beautiful beach just below, the town is in walking distance and the Train, Bus and Taxi rank is a stone throw away. On arrival we were greeted by 2 lovely reception staff, check in was quick and easy and they were both helpful. The GF... More

Just returned from this Hotel, it's nice enough but the rooms are a bit dated & need some TLC food is quite reasonable. Lovely views from the lounges & Dining room of the Beach, it's a bit of a trek uphill from the Town, but it's worth going down to the Harbour where there are many shops and places to... More
