    Overnight stay where we found the staff friendly and food good but the most uncomfortable beds. Ours were so hard we never slept all night. Our friends said their beds were soft. Advise that before staying here ask which beds are in the room.

    The entry to the swimming pool is by graduated steps and has a railing on each side. Would you be able to contact the Hotel to clarify your existing booking details, thank you Sandra.
