    This one night stay seemed promising at first but it was quite disappointing. We decided to have dinner on the premises, and it was a bit of a disaster. First we had to wait 10 minutes after being seated for menus, then we received the wrong starters. After our starter we waited 45 minutes for our mains, which would have been fine if they were of amazing quality but for chips, side salad and baked chicken, it should not take so long. The food was so very average. The wait staff seemed quite stressed and we appreciated the offer of a complimentary drink but it wasn’t very busy. Maybe 6 tables in total at 8pm. The room was fine, we had a comfortable sleep but found the bathroom quite dirty. We wanted a shower in the morning before we left and there was NO hot water. Not even enough for a luke warm wash. Not ideal when it’s cold and rainy. We let the water run for 5 minutes nothing. Tried again a half hour later, no hot water. For the reasons listed above I wouldn’t stay again.

    Brilliant stay!

    Nothing was too much trouble at this lovely hotel! Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Location was amazing . Close enough up walk into town with the beach and the Venetian waterways a stones throw away. We are returning next year!

    Lovely stay

    Overall a lovely hotel and very friendly staff. Room was a little on the small side but other than that highly recommend. Good value for money
