It's a good budget hotel and really only for just 1 or 2 nights stay. Rooms need a bit more refurbishing and carpet more cleaning. WiFi is good. Staffs I'd say average. Don't expect too much for a low price hotel. At least you can have a good sleep.

I had booked a coach trip with my husband and his brother. After reading the reviews of this hotel, I would have cancelled if I could have.

Staff not helpful, room smelt of stale smoke, no hot water in the morning, half a curtain and half a screen door in the shower (!) and generally tired looking all over. Great location near the beach, but that's about it for positivity.

My partner and I stayed here on a Friday night. We had a couple drinks before going out for a family meal elsewhere and the drinks are extremely expensive. Even during "happy hour" between 6-10pm the drinks were £5-6 each. After the meal we came back and had a few drinks in our room. We left the room to go...
