Dream bed claim

Staff at reception very helpful. Offered us upgrade with bay view. Spacious room and the bed was very comfortable as promised. Didnt eat at hotel but drank at bar. Pool facilities not used due to time constraints. Their membership card allows late check out which we needed with all our travelling. Would recommend. Easy walking to centre of town.
