Food was absolutely disgusting and tiny portions, seating area diabolical the sofas were Dirty with no leather left on them. Our toilet didn't flush and no drinks after 10.50pm. Dirty glasses. Lots of things weren't available like bread buns, hash browns (basic things a hotel should have in). I would not recommend this hotel

Hotel is 2 star. Basic clean rooms. Public areas clean. I think most of the hotel has now been refurbished but some areas are a bit drab and old fashioned still. Our first room had child size beds (2'6" wide not 3') and our shower didn't work. Management were great though and moved us straight away to another (bigger) room... More

Hotel location is ultimate, just opposite to the beach. You have a cool breeze all time and an amazing view. Hotel rooms are pretty old. Its warm water and you need to wait for 10-15 Min for hot water with tap open. Bathroom shower is pretty old, works well though. As soon as I entered the room from outside, I... More
