    Service and Staff
    Property condition


    • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    Breakfast was ok and hot, and the sea view was nice but the rest of the experience was not so good, we had to wait a while for a member of staff to check in. The decor of the hotel didnt look like it had been painted since the 1980's, disappointing there was no bar and no heating in the room, it was like spending the night in a fridge. The hotel needs a complete refurb. Im afraid I won't be staying at this hotel again. It was more like a 2* than 3.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    Great location and sea view. Good TV and comfortable bed. Overall the room and building was tired. Kettle was dirty. Stained toilet seat. Swimming pool lockers not great. Breakfast was average.
