Central hotel

We were up graded to a two bedroom apartment which was excellent. Very impressed with apartment. We had to go to hotel for breakfast but it is very close to the apartments. Breakfast was lovely. Very friendly staff. Hotel provided music in bar both nights. Very enjoyable stay. Would go again and use apartments.

Good location and value for money

Booked 3 rooms here - all quite good - clean, view on the street and sea side. Breakfast was very good here - a lot to choose from. The staff are friendly and helpful. Very tight with parking - had to way long to park the car and get it back, but was sorted well. The TV has a very poor selection of channels and had interruptions in work.
