Excellent staff, superb location and relaxing
From the first greeting at reception to the goodbye as we left. EVERY member of staff was superb. They welcomed us with our dog and nothing was too much trouble. We were even allowed to enjoy breakfast and keep the dog with us in a separate area designated for people with pooches. Next time I will book earlier so we can stay longer.

Good View
The staff at the Hotel were very pleasant, and the room was clean. Room was small but had everything that was needed and a good sea view. Kitchens close at 7.30 in evening around whole town so earlier dinner recommended.
