    Great stay.

    We had a great stay close to amenities and great restaurants. Staff are kind and helpful only downside room was rather small and hot. No lifts to upper floors either. Breakfast was substancial and was very nicely presented.

    Very clean

    Very helpfully staff! A very clean hotel, taking Covid-19 precautions seriously. Hand sanitizer stations everywhere, constantly cleaning surfaces. Had a two night stay, good value for money. Would definitely go back.

    Small cosy room

    The room was a bit small and cosy. No wall cupboards. We stayed at the hotel for 6 days. The breakfast was good. Was provided with plenty of coffee and tea sachets in the room. 5 minutes walk to the beach and easu excess to the town. All in all was a good holiday experience for us.

    There was not enough water into the shower to have a proper shower. That was the only problem cause the rest was fine.

    Good value stay but no wifi in the rooms

    A good value stay. Good breakfasts, very helpful and friendly staff, good service. Condition of the hotel is not exceptional, room was clean, reasonably decorated and functional with clean cotton sheets. The standard size double bed was bit a bit too firm for my taste. Ensuite shower worked well but only had a shower curtain attached to the upper frame from what was a previously removed shower door. The Wifi was intermittent and could only be relied on in the centre of the communal areas (there are dead zones in places) and it wouldn't reach the room at all. THEY "DON'T ADVERTISE WIFI IN THE ROOMS".

    Good stay

    Overall pleased with the stay. Was told by Hotels.com that we were to be given a room with a sea view but this was not forthcoming when we picked up the keys. Bit annoyed at the time but in the end pleased that we stayed in the room at the rear as it was quiet and a good sleeping room. Breakfast was very good and hit the spot. Nice hotel with good lounge area, although the wi-fi was not available in the room and even poor in the lounge.
