    Breakfast was excellent many have said it should be included in the price, but we understand it would cost a fortune to do this as this is a hotel not a b and b and were happy to pay.

    Not such a dislike more of an understanding that chairs in the main bar area were looking a bit tired but then again we understand that with your ongoing refurbishment not all things can be tackled at once so were unaffected by this

    Ideal location, friendly staff, nice restaurant and bar. Lovely outside verandah overlooking the beach and pier. Rooms clean and recently decorated. with modern bathrooms including toiletries.

    Hallways are higgly piggly but can do with better signs to reception. Hallway flooring could do with updating, Little lift is very claustrophobic but there is a larger one available.

    Hard to find any positives.... I guess at least the toilet and bed sheets seemed clean.

    It starts with bird excrement on the window which was facing the parking in the back. For three days no staff managed to clean it off. Each morning in the hotel starts with a nauseating smell of frying (with some overused cooking oil I presume), which incredibly transports itself through the walls and floors of every inch of the hotel's space and stays on your clothing and body for a long time. Opening the window doesn't help, as it also comes from the outside. Our room was on the top floor which meant the room never cools down after a hot day. The floors, ceiling and the walls are quite thin and very creaky. I felt sorry for whoever was sleeping underneath us. I am also not sure if the hotel would pass a fire brigade's safety inspection. The staff was nice but they seemed to be bothered by your presence rather than excited to see you. I don't recommend anyone to stay there, this place should be ashamed of calling itself a hotel and it shouldn't be included in at all. It needs an immediate general rejuvenation. Awful just awful.

    Good distance from the town and old town. Good comfortable bed, big bathroom

    - too hot in room always had to pay for fan - smells of smoke / blocked toilets - walls way to thin - to highly priced for the size of room - house keeping came way to early and we was still in bed and she nearly unlocked the door. They didn’t give us a change to put the sign out - marks on walls needs a lot of TLC
