This a great little hotel but do ask for a pool view. The street view will have you awake in the early hours with traffic and the locals heading on their daily routines. The hotel is situated just behind the Bristol Playa and to get to the town centre you have to walk through the local residential area which is no problem, they leave you alone.
The room was clean and tidy and the staff friendly but it is fundamentally a surfer's hotel with the basic amenities, rather like a student's bedsit. Self catering, this is no problem. You are provided with a coffee perculator and a toaster. I did hear of someone asking for a kettle and the receptionist got stroppy so I didn't bother asking, just boiled water in a pan for tea. I did however have to ask for a plug for the sink and was told they don't use one in this hotel but they got me one anyway.
We did enjoy our stay, no great disaster or problems, just the street view. Too noisy too early but not really worth complaining about for us, just a forewarning in case it would be a problem for someone else.
The town centre is only 5 minutes walk and a large supermarket is less than 2 minutes away but for some reason it doesn't sell newspapers or magazines.
Our one gripe was of the popularity growth of the town. If you hire a car you have a hell of a job to park. The locals park on zebra crossings and bang on corners but you try it with a hire car and you'll get a ticket. This lot do look after their own.
Still a great wee town and will always come back.
