Fantastic welcome by a really enthusiastic young lady (owner?). Made us SO welcome and let us check in early with a door code sent by text - brilliant service/organisation!! Incredibly low off season pricing. Recently partly refurbished - very clean with plain and simple but, most importantly, functioning facilities. New beds and bathroom fittings give added value. There was a good hot shower with reasonable pressure in a not brilliantly designed/drained wet room which caused a bit of a consternation as the water approached the door but the shower mat prevented a “flood” in the room – far better than the alternative “dry shower” often found in French hotels!! Breakfast was all it needed to be given the price bracket here. Free on-site parking. Aircon/heating in rooms – corridors were a bit chilly in February! Flat screen TV (1 English speaking channel). Free wifi. Sea views are good. For a 2* budget/mid range hotel it’s great - we've stayed in many 3 star hotels that struggle to give this level of service & facilities. Hotel is older construction and noise between rooms is quite noticeable. Note - there is not a lift. Car parking is not secure. Access is up a fairly steep hill and then steps & there are no ground floor rooms so a wheelchair would probably be out of the question. Access to car park is similar with steps down to the hotel. I wouldn’t choose to stay here for weeks at a time but for a short visit or overnight stop its absolutely fine.
