Carole,s review of Tides.
Reception staff are polite, pleasent and efficient. The rooms are clean but smelt a little bit 'doggy'. The road behind is a bit noisy but the sea view makes up for that. Overall excellent value for money.

Nice views, okay stay
Our stay was okay. We stayed in room 109, it was small. The bathroom was tiny, with a small shower. There was only 1 nightstand which was disappointing. The room had a desk but it was placed right in front of the closet, which made the closet unfunctional. There was a nice size mini fridge but it could use a microwave. The property was nice, had nice views, unfortunately there is no beach access. It did have an old set of stairs down to the beach which is not gated and locked off. It'd be nice if those were rebuilt for access to the beach. We sat one evening at the western most fire pit, just before sunset. We tried to light it, as it was chilly that day but could not. We hoped that staff would be by to light it but no one ever came. I'm sure we could have gone to the office to ask but it would have been nice if someone just came around in the evenings to light them. I saw people at the fire pits mornings and evenings each day. In addition, we had extremely loud people above us. Not really the hotels fault, but just be aware, the building is old and if you don't have courteous people above you, you will hear everything. They were up until 1am and woke up promptly at 6am, so sleeping was an issue. I would recommend the bungalows to anyone planning to stay so that noise would be less of an issue.

Great Room with A View
We had the ocean view and it was a quaint older hotel but clean and comfortable. I would go back for sure.

The first night we did not sleep at all. Kids running a muck until midnight, on Dec.28.A creepy man trying to look in someone’s room.Room is well outdated.Bathroom is old and worn out, paint peeling.Will not stay again, and would not recommend.

Good hotel
Front desk was amazing! Hotel is old, but great location. You can hear everything from every room. Definitely recommend a top floor and not for light sleepers.
