Nice hotel in a good location facing the sea. The rooms are basic but adequate. The spa facilities and pool are good and the food is lovely. We would stay here again and we have visited a few times already.

On arriving the lady at reception was less than helpful. No information was given regarding any of the facilities. No breakfast, room only, no running water in room, no telephone in room, no kettle in room. We actually left the hotel quickly and only returned...More

This could be a great hotel, but I can only assume the new owners are property developers who want to run it down so they can convert it into holiday lets...why... because this hotel does not serve ANY food, not even breakfast!! Its a shame...More

Stayed here before and thoroughly enjoyed it. This time though they no longer served breakfast which is highly inconvenient as nearest cafe is a trek. A great pity as this will no doubt dissuade people from staying here without buying breakfast items to take in....More

Hi Amy, I can only say, lucky you for a clean room. We had to report them to the Environmental Health who agreed with us, sent an inspector and immediately instructed them to remove the bird poo from the window-sills that had been there for over a year, breeding bacteria. They also instructed them to do a deep clean with professional cleaners and I have an email from them stating the bad condition of the hotel. Take a look at the photos on my review, the dirt was everywhere, toilet, taps, bath, sink, carpets, radiators. I tried to have a civilised conversation with the hotel and they had said they would look into it... I am still waiting and waiting for my refund that never happened. They had an extremely bad attitude and seem only competent in replying with reasons for their downfall that are actually not true. I had booked 2 rooms and the other had body fluids on the cushions, pillow and bed. They are a disgusting organisation and the staff clearly couldn't give a fig. You must have had "the" clean room - as I said before, lucky for you.
