An absolute pleasure. Excellent for kids. The pool was fantastic with a lovely warm hot tub (38c•) to relax after a long day out. Most of all the location is brilliant. Everywhere is within walking distance but also a free trolley bus service stops just across the street from the front door. This will take you all around town for free.
Yes, there are seagulls that scream but no more than you'd expect for a seaside resort. Rooms are spacious with coffee and fridge facilities. Beds are extremely comfortable with additional pillows for extra comfort. A perfect place for a short break.
