A not so good hotel, very old building, very bad bathroom. Receptionist was horrible too! Not even a smile, just wanted to get rid of us while checking in. I booked in a different hotel and checking out. Not worth wasting my vacation time here. The only plus here is the sea view hence 2 stars.

The check in was smooth, efficient and friendly. The room was a pleasent surprise in being a seperate lounge and bedroom. The disappointment was the bathroom, it is in need...

The tap for the shower/faucet was hard to move- and moving it made no difference; water flowed from BOTH the faucet & the shower. The toilet bowl's plastic cover had a crack that pinched you as you sat on it. The wash basin was stained yellow.Yet we tolerted it all in good humor. Next day we went out at 8.30...

Nice, rather old hotel but the facilities seem adequate and clean. Each room has a spacious balcony where you can sit and relax. The staff is helpful and polite. Limited parking space, and not much available (eg shopping and eateries) within walking distance.
