Service at the pool was very slow and intermittent. Apart from that, excellent experience.

The staff are great, very attentive and seem genuinely happy doing their jobs, no false sincerity here. There is mot much I can think of improving, perhaps more power points in accessible places in bedrooms and the beds could be more modern with memory foam mattresses.

Great location. Paid for room with a partial sea view so not cheapest room on offer. It was in the older part of building, very small double bedroom with a single wardrobe ,4 drawers which was enough for a 4 day stay but not enough if you were there for a fortnight.Shower in bath, so,difficult if you are unable to climb into a bath . Breakfast excellent , everything to choose from to eat .

A Hotel Worth The Money

My family stayed for a week whilst attending a wedding. We had two double & one single room. An error by the hotel regarding the booking was rectified upon arrival, however I was disappointed that when given a free drink I was refused a pint & was only permitted a half!! We stayed on a B&B basis and had no cause for complaint regarding the rooms or food, in fact the breakfast was excellent. Not all rooms have balconies, and in those that do some of the balconies are extremely small. Wi-fi is a bit hit and miss but mostly a hit. The reception staff weren't great. They seemed to have great difficulty in booking taxis and also sent a family member to a non-English speaking clinic. Despite the nit-picking above, we found the hotel to be an excellent choice and would have no misgivings about staying there again.
