The hotel never had a restaurant which was unusual but they gave you food vouchers that you could use in local bar restaurants. This was excellent for us.

Having stayed at this hotel 3 years ago it was great to see the same friendly bar and reception staff who would do anything to help. This hotel has a fantastic location for restaurants and the beach. Unfortunately we won't be going back unless the hotel has a refurbishment. Bedding and towels were clean but I don't think the floor was swept or mopped in the two weeks we were there. The whole hotel is now very grotty.

Hotel is on the busy part of the old town, above loud pubs that are open till about 5am, WiFi in reception didn't work the whole 5 days we were there but you can find plenty of bars with WiFi. Hotel rooms are basic but clean, have all that you need. Receptionist female is really helpful. Location is the best part of the hotel. Not an option if you have physical disabilities, steps to reception, no lift, steps to hotel rooms then a lift then a few more to your room.

Hotel in great location, but rooms were tired and staff were slightly surly. Ok for a cheap weekend but no longer. Would have stayed at a better quality hotel, good hotel for 18-30 group but for the more mature couples not good enough. Breakfast was good though. Clean rooms but tired and in need of updating. Not enough sunbed mattresses. A reasonable 2 star hotel but definitely not 3 star.
