I stayed at this hotel over the new year period. New years eve dinner ball was excellent, however, the 3 nights I was there, I could not take a nana nap in the arvo due to the massive steam train engines flying past. They were so noisy. On the other side of our room,were the noise of cars and 3 wheelers. There were renovations going on constantly with drills set off aloud. We chose half board which was breakfast and dinner. I didn't like it at all. No curries were served and on new years day, the milk rice tasted and felt like rubber. We had arranged for an extra rollaway bed but it was never delivered to our room. Room service took 1 1/2 hours to make hot chips. I cannot recommend this hotel until major changes are made with improving the selection of food and re location of the monster trains to name the least.

I stayed at this hotel several years ago and had no real issues about booking it again. It's a nice basic 3-star beach hotel. However, I was in for a surprise when I arrived. I booked it through the BA Exec Club and assumed the hotel was fully operational and fit for purpose. Sadly it wasn't. This review is difficult in the circumstances because based on a previous stay it was acceptable. This 90-room property is (or was) undergoing major renovation when I checked in for 3 nights on 3 December. I was extremely disappointed as the only guest in the hotel. I don't blame the hotel for this, as I didn't make my booking direct with them. However, there was only one functional restaurant. I was taken aback on my first day at breakfast when I noticed all the lids on the hot food trays were open. This meant the food was essentially luke warm or cold. I brought this to the attention of the front office manager and he took it onboard and made amends the following day. Another issue was the swimming pool being under construction. It was an eyesore (see pic). All in all I was very disappointed with my stay, but don't blame the hotel entirely. It will be interesting to visit again when they are fully operational to gauge it again then. The rooms are basic but functional. The hotel itself is noisy through internal, street and passing train noise. The tracks are right opposite the hotel. Access to the rooms is via external corridors that back onto the street. I would check with the hotel to ensure it is fully operational before booking.

The hotel is average in all terms, be it services and amenities. Not worth the money.
The only thing nice is it's close proximity to the sea and the wonderful resturants on beach!
The breakfast buffet had quite a lot of variety. Though al-a-carte for dinner was very limited in terms of availibity.
