The hotel was very clean and basic as was our room .The bed was quite comfortable. However my daughter slept without her pillow as it was very hard. The curtains also would not close straight across so you would have a job to sleep on a lighter evening in the summer.
Very outdated hotel. Still in a 70's time warp.
The furniture, rooms, bathrooms, t.v's, phones, surroundings looked as if they had never been updated since the day the hotel was built.
Hotel in good position by the sea. Music good with plenty of lounges and library space.
However I was appalled at the food . Did not look appetising, taste very appetising or appealing. It was the worst I have had in all my years of travel. Very basic and I ended up with a banana and ice cream as the best option. Would eat out if staying here longer.
The coffee in the bar was nice.
We ended up here because of bad weather and had to stay overnight because our plane could not take off so we were grateful for the accommodation but it would definitely not be a hotel I would choose to go to again.
The staff however were very nice and very helpful in sorting out our pick up times back to the airport and they did put on a very basic early breakfast for us which was very kind of them.
