We had a lovely stay here. No traffic noise. Relaxed continental breakfast. It was great to sit out on the breakfast terrace, for information the breakfast area is on the 3rd floor with lifts. I love my tea in the morning - maybe bring your own kettle and buy bottled water / milk not sure why my tea didn't taste...

Rooms clean, helpful polite staff. Would stay here again. Beach a 10 minute walk but we enjoyed its central location. I think the only way I would improve the hotel is if they started to do evening meals as they have the facility's in place...oh and that blasted slow toaster!!!

We returned to this hotel after having enjoyed a stay here two years ago. It was the same nice hotel and great staff. It's not exactly "on" the beach as you have to walk for almost a kilometer to get there. They do have a nice pool, but it can be a bit hard to get a spot on a...
