The hotel is a little run down with flaking wallpaper and a couple of interesting stains on the carpets, however it is clean. Staff are friendly and the overall experience was good. The rooms are lovely we even had a bonus of a jacuzzi bath which we weren't expecting. Breakfast was an average hotel breakfast but the view while eating it was worth it. Would definitely stay again was a great night away.

Good location near shops bars beach which was hand

So sad that such a magnificent hotel of this nature has such neglect I stayed here 10 yrs ago and no money or maintenance has been done since then ie decorated rooms etc and worn out filthy carpets and clenleyness of bathroom was poor but I must olso add most of the staff have apsalutly no interest in custermer services skills they totally blatantly take no notice of your requests so sad I love this type of hotel steeped in history shame on the owners for greedy profits instead of love for the building and fittings they spend nothing on it !!!!!
