If your looking for a fairly cheap no nonsense room near the center and beach, then this place fits the bill. Only ever had single rooms, which are very small, no idea if double rooms are much larger.

My Partner and myself booked into this hotel for a friends wedding and a well deserved break away as he is currently undergoing a course of Chemotherapy. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely receptionist. We stayed in room 120. The room was on the second floor and was extremely clean and spacious. Tea and coffee plentiful. The massive...

Stayed here with friends in august for 2 days and our stay was lovely! It was our second time and we will definitely be back. Nice swimming pool, polite accommodating staff, lovely breakfast! The only thing that might bother some - are squeaky floors. You can hear people walking upstairs. But this didn't ruin our stay.

We telephoned ahead for a quiet room as we had stayed here before and had a room at the front which turned out to be a bit noisy ( people and traffic). We arrived early on a Friday morning and asked if they could call us when the room was ready as we wanted to do some shopping in town....

Other than the reception when we arrived all the staff were great. Reception needs to improve with a smile and a welcome as it will create a good first impression. Room was clean and comfortable but avoid the third floor as there is very little water pressure and water temperature can vary dramatically when water is turned on in another...
