If you like don’t mind cheap and tatty furniture, a carpet to avoid with your bare feet, lumpy pillows, a smell of air freshener permeating your room, a toilet that doesn’t flush properly, a stained old ironing board and thin bed linen then this is the place for you. The sea view is amazing however and the breakfast is good. A pigeon walked into my room whilst I was asleep but left when I woke up and shouted at it. I accept that my room may have been awaiting a makeover but this does not compensate for a less than satisfactory experience.
