We have just returned from a 9 night stay at this hotel. It is situated near the end of the main street and was very peaceful, especially at night. The rooms are spacious and clean although the furniture is a little strange as the drawers are too shallow to put anything in! The room was cleaned daily and our only gripe was that we were in room 1 which is right outside reception. This meant that we were woken by anyone at the reception desk from about 7.30am onwards. So beware room 1! We also had a slight problem with smelly aircon at the end of the holiday but this may have been a temporary problem as it was only the last couple of nights and didn't really spoil our stay. The rooms look out onto the beach and it was very relaxing to sit on the balcony at any time of the day or night and chill!! Sunbeds weren't too much of a problem although they would benefit from adding a couple more. There are several dogs which roam the beach and sleep under your sunbed but they are harmless and don't bother you. The main street livens up at night and there are plenty of eating places and bars to choose from. The Starfish and Coffee serves great food and is very popular with interesting decor, we ate here several times and the service was excellent. There is a seafood restaurant with meal deals, the owner is French and stands outside in the evenings chatting and giving information about the menu. He is lovely and the food is fantastic, definitely worth paying a little bit more for. For anyone who is English and knows who Rick Stein is this man is the French equivalent!! (But sadly no Chalky!) The Aussie bar is lively and friendly, in fact we didn't get a bum deal anywhere!! We had a lovely relaxing time and would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a nice place to chill.
