We have just come back from this hotel which is in an excellent location as other guests have already reported. The hotel could be absolutely stunning and command top money if it was updated. The bedroom, bathroom and balcony are all of a good size. Unfortunately, the beds are very hard and they only seem to have twin beds - no doubles! The bathroom leaves a lot to be desired in cleanliness needs an urgent update with grouting etc. being very dirty and discoloured. We only had breakfast one morning as there were ants covering the underside of the plate which I picked up and which then crawled on to the top of the plate. I did show the waiter who just picked up the plates and took them back in to the kitchen. Didn't seem to be that bothered to be honest. We never ate in dining room after this and bought breakfast in nearby café/bars. We will not return to this hotel unless it is upgraded.
