Wonderful bedroom looking out to the water. Great helpful staff. Good food in the bar and very nice brekky. Only drawback was the heating was not on. Very cold day and draughty old windows didnt help, but for us well worth it for the view. Although the Hotel is in need of a bit of tlc, thats partly why we...

A friendly, professionally run hotel in a superb location, with a restaurant and food to die for. All presided over by an incomparable Maître D. Although I go to the hotel mainly on business trips I would happily stay there on holiday as it is consistently excellent

Great location and value for money could do with some TLC and the beds are not that comfortable but for the price you cannot really complain, just a short walk to the beach and shops. We stay here on a regular basis so would recommend this hotel.
