Not sure what hotel you are writing about but it certainly isn't ours, no staff live in sheds they all live in The Block Built and comfortable Staff Block or within the Hotel Building and none of our staff are from what can be described as poor countries, we do not have small plates at breakfast or any other time...

The hotel itself is clean but it is dated, and there was not much room to move in our room; the bathroom and shower cubicle were particularly tight. We are in the bar/ restaurant and... More

Me and 4 other friends stayed here for a wedding for 5 nights. Its in an amazing location right by cobo beach which meant we could go and have bbqs and fish and chips on the beach watching the sunset with an easy 2 minute walk back.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us, as you sat lots of locals eat and drink here every week all year round and if I turned the Bar into just another characterless modern pub I think I would not be very popular with the locals who love the Bar :-) More

There is plenty of car parking space at the hotel and a bus stop just opposite. The beach, Cobo Bay, is just across the road. The hotel is... More
