This is simply a very well-run hotel. The staff are polite, friendly and efficient. the hotel itself is comfortable and scrupulously clean. It may be a little old-fashioned; certainly neither the food nor the decor could be considered "cutting edge", but if you want a pleasant, good value, restful stay in a great location, you need look no further.

Great location, very friendly staff, great food. Rooms slightly small, some issues with plumbing as taps turned the wrong way and were not consistent, but very good value for money. Great views of the sea, and within easy walking distance of the centre and train station
