Very friendly place to stay, staff were lovely! Clean quiet rooms, ideal if you have a child. Breakfast was nice and the staff attentive. There's plenty of parking at this hotel, and the location is central so its a 5-10 minute walk down to the beach. I would stop there again for another weekend break.

What a gem!! We were booked on a deal so was an absolute bargain. The hotel has been recently refurbished and the decor was stunning, very chic and elegant. Breakfast was good and plentiful & staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Although our room was quite a small double it was incredibly clean and comfortable. The towels were even changed and...

Lovely welcome, nice room, very clean and modern with plenty of room and a nice bathroom. Shower wasn't amazing but acceptable (water pressure average and ran a bit hot and cold but otherwise ok). Lovely breakfast and very well priced and a good deal. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here with several family members. We'd brought a couple of bicycles with us and the staff were happy to store them safely in the shed for us. We had two doubles and two single rooms. All were spotlessly clean with good facilities. Breakfast was excellent, and we had a couple of drinks in the bar. Staff were lovely...

Great hotel, spoilt only by poor showers in single rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Janaina Luanda, who put up with us changing breakfast orders and always had a smile on her face. Big thanks to Janaina and to Anna, for letting us store our bikes in the shed. Great bar staff too! Very clean comfortable rooms...

The hotel was very well maintained with friendly and helpful staff. The bed was very comfortable. Clean towels were provided every day. Due to early starts I only had breakfast on one of the five days I stayed and I found the breakfast to be well cooked.
