The location was perfect. The staff were excellent. The breakfast was good. My only crib would be that the hotel needs a bit of a makeover.

LOCATION

Pros: location
Cons: Its looking a bit tired now, it needs a bit of a refurb but it was clean and tidy for our short stay.
Location: A short walk from the main town activities and not too far from the harbour.
Brilliant location for access to everything, bus stop close by. ideal for the fire work celebrations on new years eve.

Die Lage der Unterkunft ist perfekt. Das Gebäude wiederum ist nicht mehr so frisch und einige Teile benötigen eine Renovation.
