I staid in the hotel one night but isn't what I have expected. Was very basic in every way. If you want to stay in it lower your expectations a lot and you won't be disappointed. The food menu which is the room is very brief and the one I have liked was the cream chicken soup. The chicken and... More

We stayed in Surf view hotel for two nights. The rooms are small but clean and tidy. Breakfast is very simple, but good enough. The service was kind and quick (They expect for a tip for every little thing they do). All in all, a good place to stay, if you are only looking for a bed, bath and breakfast... More

So, they moved as to another hotel (the new surf view hotel). On arrival we had to pay, although the POS machine was out of order and they asked us to... More

First I made a booking via phone and reception said they have available room single and double. I inform them my arrival time at morning, gave my name and contact number for confirmation.
