The hotel is one road back from the coast road and reasonably quiet. Parking is available around the building which is charged separately at £2 a day. We requested a high floor and were allocated a room on the third floor facing the road. The single lift only accommodated two persons. The accommodation consisted of two double wardrobes with four...

The food in the restaurant was excellent and the service was very good. A standard hotel buffet breakfast. I felt the hotel were...

In the summer would be lovely but in February wasn't so good. Also there was a party in the hotel and we could hear the...

Upon arrival we were given a family room in one of the chalets which was lovely, very modern, large and bright. Unfortunately the heating pipes were extremely...
