I stayed at the Burlington for four nights with Shearings Holidays. My room was lovely, nice big, comfy bed and sea views from the side windows. Lots of hot water in the bathroom. The food was OK-- and sometimes the waiters were rushed, so the service could be erratic. It was a short walk to the beach and the town... More

I was a little apprehensive about the bedroom as we chose to book a standard room but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was very comfortable and spacious, the beds were comfortable too. The service in the restaurant was very efficient and the food was tasty. I would recommend this hotel.
