Two problems. 1. Breakfast - only full english available and only between 9 & 9-30 !!!!!!!!! 2. In you stay in a 'sea view' room at the front do not expect to get much sleep before midnight due to the rowdy crowd on the terrace/hotel entrance right below.

Can't fault the place at all - spacious comfortable room (no 6) with lovely sea views, every facility in room first class, clean and two complimentary bottles of mineral water - all for £69 a night! Fantastic value! Didn't try the breakfast but did eat... More
