The location is perfect - across the road from the beach, and walking distance to great restaurants and shops. The receptionist gave excellent service, and went beyond our expectations in finding an item we had misplaced and left behind.

Great position on the beach, friendly staff but the building / rooms are tired / cleanliness not to the required standard for tourism. The photographs and write - up really impressed me but the rooms were less than expected. Staff were brilliant, helpful and accommodating.
