“Remarkable it can be classed as 4 star!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2010

I'm not sure how you get stars, but beware I wouldn't give it any more than 2! It was scruffy, dark, cold, nothing worked properly, and while not terrible I can't think of one good thing to say. In reception there is a 'best hotel' certificate from 2000 and, I suspect not a thing has been done since; it really needs a major makeover.

The facilities that no doubt increase the star rating are laughable; the jacuzi pool was shut, the other pool was too deep to stand up. The gym consited of a bench and one dumbell, and the games room consisted of a pinball machine tucked away in the corner of a TV room/library/bar. There was no food or drink to be seen.

We were ready to leave but unfortunately had to stay an extra few days because of the volcanic ash crisis. It was miserable, we won't be going back!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2009

We've been there twice and it suits our quirky and simple requirements: a 2-bed room self-catering suite close to the shops (excellent baker and fish shop); 2 excellent restaurants within 50 metres; parking and bus stop outside the door; Sea view (have to ask for it). It's a bit faded and the kitchen equipment a bit limited.
