The kids room had a tv in it and wifi was free. Parking was free in the basement. The view from our 3rd floor room...

Really enjoyed staying here for our wedding anniversary... our room was on the 4th floor and it was spacious, modern and had an amazing view of the ocean. Lovely sunny balcony perfect for boat spotting and people watching.

Stayed here on our wedding night. We were allowed to check in early so the bride could get ready before our wedding at 3 doors up. The staff were excellent and very helpful. When we arrived back from our weeding they had a lovely bottle of champagne for us. Couldn't fault the room service at all. Great value for money.

Modern clean rooms. Beds comfortable. Good facilities. Enjoyed the sea view from sunny balcony. Only one problem with the dining chairs which were unstable and legs caught our toes. Quite noisy in street below.
