    Smallish room although it’s a single. The bathroom is small but adequate. Clean room, comfortable bed. The Wi-Fi is free. No safe, though. Not enough electrical outlets. The hotel is right on the beach so I’d say it would be great during the summer. No...More

    We asked for, and got, a quiet room at the rear of the hotel. The facilities were very good, and the breakfast buffet was of a high standard. We are glad that the hotel maintains the tradition of a live pianist in the bar.

    Really good hotel, has two restaurants, food nice, waiter service really good, rooms clean, the only thing that is a criticism that you pay more for a sea view most hotels I've stayed in never charged for this, Breakfast is plentyfull and fresh highly recommend

    Response from HEHotels | Property representative |
    There's a ground floor entrance but reception need to be called to open the door if it's needed between 11am and 5pm when the area is not manned. We have no walkin showers or disabled friendly rooms unfortunately.

    The hotel is OK. It is beginning to look in need of a refresh, but perfectly fine for a stop-over or a few days.
