The hotel itself was fine, the room generous in size but poor in decor. Not sure if the owners are planning to turn the room into a self catering but there were utensils in the room and a sink unit but no water from the taps. There is a pipe under the sink and one would assume its to turn on the water but no, we found out its a gas pipe, so dont turn it on like we did.
The bathroom was clean but small and could do with some refurbishing. We did have a nice large balcony but needs an outside light.
Breakfast was like previous reviewers said and the coffee awful, having been all over Italy this is the first time to have self service powdered coffee and milk. Not sure why they cant use the shiny machine in their bar.
The hotel is a good 20 minute walk to the harbour and town centre, but a further 20 minute walk to the sandy beach, we ended up hiring bicycles to get us there and back each day.
Overall the hotel is clean with towels changed each day but it was more basic than we had expected and certainly further from town than was convenient.
