The hotel was excellent, staff very helpful.Food as breakfast and room excellent. I would recommend this hotel to everyperson who asked. I have been a user of Accors hotel group for many years home and abroad and never been disappointed. But i think this rates as good as it gets.

Great friendly staff, a nice hotel, but not the nicest area, though, reasonably close to the city centre and excellent value for money, we stay here regularly and have always had a pleasant stay at this hotel.

The hotel room was clean, reasonably comfortable considering the price and had good wifi. Unfortunately the noise from the other guests staying in the hotel, shouting up the corridors at 3 in the morning (banding on our door because they were drunk and had forgotten their room number) was less than impressive. Won't stay again.

Worst still was the bed I got into bed and it... More

We enjoyed staying here as it was out of town and a bit cheaper. It was close for our walks around the marina and drives up the coast. The rooms were quite basic but beds were very comfortable. The staff were great in suggesting places for us to go.

Hotel s budget brand and price, but surprisingly comfortable. Big Carpark that is free, and bar area and TV. Food prices not unreasonable, but I popped over McDonalds next door as didn't want full meal. Rooms more than adequate, spotless and bed very comfatable. Breakfast included which had more than enough choice. Can't really recommend the sausages, but every thing... More

We stayed as a family (2 adults and a 1 year old). Hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were warm, welcoming and friendly. We were amazingly well catered for... our every request was met without a quibble, doubtful pause or the need to 'ask management' or 'consult the health and safety manual'. Although the hotel do not serve whole... More
