The rooms and too too hot and they don't provide water in the rooms. There was a vending machine on the floor - broken. When reported it I was told would contact the company who supplies... More

I went downstairs... More

Stayed in this hotel in July for just one night with a friend. From start to finish, it was a lovely experience. Enjoyed a lovely lunch and was looked after by Dawn in the Marina Bar on arrival. One thing I noticed was the lovely welcome for locals who came into the bar while I was there. That afternoon, My... More

Can't fault the staff at this hotel, professional yet friendly. Would recommend that if they try to book you into Room 105 that you ask for another room. Upon entering the room we were disappointed at the size as it was a lot smaller than rooms in other hotels we stayed in. We were even less impressed by the following:... More
