We stayed for six nights. To be honest, it's not pretty. Very old, with stained carpet (I refused to go bare foot), a very old bathroom with nasty shower curtain instead of glass, so the entire bathroom was soaking wet after every shower. A filthy love seat chair. I used it to hold my suitcase because I was scared to look at it! Views of the garden shed (not kidding), the car park is right at the room door.
Oh, and reception is only operational from 8.30am to 3pm (approx), so when we got there, there was a piece if paper taped onto an external safety box for us to call a number. Too bad for international tourists without a mobile phone. Also too bad if you don't like your room or have a problem with it, because there is no one around to offer you a key to a different room.
There is a small bar fridge, toaster and kettle. But everything felt dirty and cheap. I can't see housekeeping would take plates and cutlery to wash them, so am taking a guess that they are just washed in the bathroom sink with water.
The upside is that the bed was actually quite comfortable. It is also walking distance to the beach.
The staff were friendly and even allowed us to use their laundry (including detergents).
The stairs are noisy and there are no lifts, so disabled or elderly guests should request a ground floor room.
I would not stay here again, unless it is refurbished. It certainly has potential to be a wonderful property.
I've since looked through comments here in trip adviser and it seems most people have the same thing to say. I've also noticed that the hotel manager writes a copy paste exact response to each comment, which demonstrates that he doesn't care about is guests or even installing confidence in future potential guests.
It is a cheap hotel, so you get what you pay for. Stay here if it's a quick visit and if you're not scared of germs!! And if you do stay here, do go and eat at zephyr, which is a 10 to 15 minute walk away.
