Well located, rooms (in newer part) clean but tired. No frills. Would definitely benefit from a refurb. The rooms in the old part above reception are awful. We asked to change. Pool v clean, lots of the sunbeds are worn. Staff ok apart from one woman who goes out of her way to be extremely unhelpful.

The great thing about this hotel is the location. 5 minutes to the square although up a hill or steps. The outside of the hotel is fine but between my group we have 3 rooms and all need investment. My bedroom is small, carpeted (strange in this climate), tiny TVs with no British channels, dated, low window, no balcony or... More

Perfect location in the old town, close to the square, shops and the beach. Rooms are large enough for two with free air con, wifi in the reception area. That's the positives. The place needs money spending on it in most areas, the rooms smell damp, need brightening up especially in the bathrooms, they are lovely and clean though. The... More

We stayed for 4 nights in the bedroom above the bar/facing the road. It badly needs redecorating, there was mould on the walls and stains on the bed sheets. The pillows need replacing as they are extremely thin! The bathroom was clean but again needs updating, the window in the bathroom kept flying open to the courtyard below. There's only... More

the hotel was excellently placed and the staff were friendly. The rooms were basic, but clean. The breakfast was monotonous, albeit filling. It was exactly the same every day. We were assigned a room on floor 2 and was facing the road, so had no privacy from roadside. A net curtain would have solved this. The pool was nice, but... More

Well I placed my standards all the way to the ground knowing it was a two star but was still disappointed. Upon arrival we got there too early and was told to leave our luggage in the open and come back.... We took our luggage with us. After waiting for 3 hours of our holiday doing nothing but waiting, we... More
