The Helaina is a bed and breakfast establishment which also has a small number of apartments. We stayed in the ground floor, one bedroom apartment. The accomodation and facilities were excellent and the sea view from the reception room was a bonus. The greeting was friendly and informative and the parking permit for the road directly outside of the building...

We stayed for one night only. The guesthouse is compact in size, but I've not seen such prestine cleanliness throughout an establishment for a long time up to this standard! The room was compact as I said, but very comfortable, with excellent facilities, such as coffee/tea, spacious shower/en-suite and a good quality TV! The communal lounge was comfortable with a...

We had a 2 bed apartment on the 4th floor with brilliant sea view of the north beach. Many 4 star hotels would struggle to match the Helaina for facility and services. The breakfast menu was extensive and freshly cooked to order, Our apartment could best be described as "boutique", beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean .There is an honesty bar...
