This is clearly a conference hotel and not perfect for vacation. The staff (reception, breakfast, chambermaid) is really friendly and reception and breakfast staff spoke all proper English. The rooms were really tidy. There is no bar or restaurant in the hotel, a restaurant and a Burger King is close by. We had a room to the seaside with a...

Pleasantly suprised by this hotel. Reception staff very helpful and polite. The room (101) was excellent, clean and with a balcony that was at least the size of the room we were in.
