Summer strand Hotel location is what stands out for. I prefer peace of mind and far from the madding crowd. I believe after finishing your renovations, will see the best of the place. The amount of tv station must be looked at and reviewed

The room was good. Regarding the room service: the sachets for coffee, tea and milk were not adequately replaced, a body lotion in the bathroom would have been convenient, didn't see the disposable plastic packets in the toilet

The lift looks and feels old. So does the corridors. The tv reception was poor for some stations. No CNN, BBC, SkyNews. In fact limited tv channels. No Toilet brush in case one messes the toilet chamber and needs to clean it immediately. The breakfast was great and the receptionist was awesome, on the brighter side.

This family owned hotel offers a great variety - a normal overnighter, tour group facilities, longer term accommodation, and is just about right on the beach. Super business, function facilities, pleasant restaurant - all for good value rates
