Great location and lovely view of the beach and sea from many of the rooms. Staff very helpful as we asked if it was possible to change rooms so that we could have a bath rather than a shower and they managed to sort that out for us very quickly. Underground garage very good and worth the money. Thank you... More

Breakfasts are adequate but in comparison with other hotels are not imaginative. . For example, the breakfast eggs are only sun-topped and fried There is no choice of soft boiled or scrambled. There is the impression that a catering firm has been brought in as all the food is standardised and the baking has the stale taste of the supermarket,... More

This beautiful hotel is in a great location. The rooms are lovely and the staff extremely helpful. We ate in the restaurant which was quite nice, and very good value for money. It's not located in the old town, but it's a lovely 30 minute walk along the sea front, or there is a taxi rank right outside the hotel.... More

Well located hotel. Spacious room and amazing view. The beach is just across the street. All is walking distance from you. They have underground parking but the area around is full of parkings to park for free. Good service nice atmosphere.

We stayed six nights here. Very clean and comfortable. Very convenient to the beach. Too convenient to the ice cream stand across the street! ;) Mostly quiet. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The laundry service was fast. Just a basic clean seaside hotel.

Let the lift take your car to the undergound car park and then whisk up to your elegant room , with terrace and sea views in this classy hotel. Great service with facilities to die for. If you get bored you can go to the Casino across the road. Beautiful beach if 50 m away! Lovely hotel

We stayed at this hotel on the basis of previous reviews and were not disappointed. We had a very comfortable room with a sea-view which was well worth the supplement. The complementary soft drinks in the mini bar were a nice touch but tea and coffee making facilities would have been preferable. We ate in the restaurant the first night... More

Terrific remodel. Light wood with tailored classic look wi modern elements. Silent AC. Large rooms with sofa and luxurious baths. Just cannot get used to the twin beds pushed together. Give me a queen or king please. Breakfast room better than most. Staff very nice but not very knowledgeable. Overall great value and would book again without hesitation.

Stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the location close to good restaurants and beautiful beach. Everyone was helpful especially one of the desk people, a young man who spent a half an hour helping us getting train tickets online plus downloading hem. Saved us a trip to station. The breakfast, included in the price was good and the room was beautiful... More
