Great stay!
It was great for what it is. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The service was awesome. The only issue was that the toilet in our room was extremely tiny. Other than that it was wonderful.

8/10 Very good

Small but perfectly formed room. Modern fittings throughout (except the carpet on the stairs). A double bed would be better than a king - barely enough room to side step around the bed. Tiny shower enclosure.

Nice hotel, great view
Nice and clean room with beautiful view at the sea. Great central location. Very friendly staff. I liked the option of self catering breakfast in the kitchen so you can eat whenever you like. Wifi and hot water working well. I’d stay here again!

An exceptional place to stay. Room and bed comfortable and spotless, cleaning took place every day with fresh towels and water provided. Staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Loved the breakfast layout and selection available especially the cold meats, cheese and fresh fruit which varied daily. Parking close by on surrounding streets. Ideal location for beach, theatres, art gallery and shops.
