Now I know a lot of people have given this hotel poor reviews, and I went there with more than a little trepidation.
If you are someone who likes a young crowd, fusion menus and wifi wherever you go then this is not the place for you.
Usually I would say I was that kind of person, but on this occasion I was charmed by this old school hotel with it's staff who were willing to do anything for their guests, the good, honest food, the hilarious evening entertainment, and the pleasant garden and indoor pool.
In the evening all the guests congregate in the rooms downstairs chatting, drinking and playing games such as pool and ping pong. I have never been in a hotel where this happened before, and I found it charming.
The rooms were not great, but they were very spacious and had big TV's (if that is important to you). Everything was clean and functional but just not very modern. When the weather is hot, the rooms get hot and the windows don't open very wide - this could be a problem - especially if like us you are travelling with babies.
Everything in the hotel was aimed at an older clientele, but if you can see the positive in experiencing a bit of seaside hospitality from another generation, then this is for you.
