The first thing you notice when you walk through the door is a fusty smell & old tobacco. The hallway is dark & uninviting. The lady who answered the door did not introduce herself, we were immediately asked to fill in a registration form & whilst doing so we were immediately asked to move the car forward by literally 3 inches. While my husband was moving the car I was then rushed up to the room, not even given the opportunity to wait for him !! My husband was then stranded downstairs on his own not knowing which room we were even in & then had to make his way upstairs on his own. Arriving at the room, not only did it feel dated, everything was botched to the point where in the shower room which was very small, dated & looked unfinished (painted plaster board) border upside down, the shower was difficult to get a constant temperature & looked like it was from the 1980's. The separate toilet room was so small, (most of it taken up by a huge & noisy water tank) the toilet door wouldn't shut properly & the seat was loose & would fall off the toilet whilst seated ! One reason we booked this quest house was because, it did NOT cater for small children, ( we wanted to get away from ours for a break!), but there was , and a baby , so the breakfast room was very noisy!
The room was clean & the view was good & the guesthouse was in a good location. The whole place could look really nice with some money spent on it & attention to detail. Breakfast was nothing special, the young waitress serving was pleasant. Dining room badly laid out & poorly thought out & in need of a make over.
A real shame
Could be spectacular, especially that staircase!!! Wouldn't recommend & wouldn't stay here again.

You pay for the location not the room Over priced for what it is . Ironically 'no smoking' although when you walk in you get a hit of must & old Tobacco. However staff were friendly and welcoming.But the bed sheets were dirty and bathroom dirty also. It's unfortunate as with a bit of TLC could be quite something.Not bad for a 1 night stay,wouldn't stay longer than that though

Stayed here for 3 nights and booked via booking.com as it was within our budget. Once we arrived we were surprised when the parking for 4 cars as stated was actually just a driveway that could hold 3 small cars at a push. Eventually found a space on one of the side roads, rang the door bell to be let in. A lady opened the door and immediately we could smell stale cigarettes and noticed how dark and dated the "lobby" area was. The lady even had to switch on a desk lamp so I could see to fill in the booking form.
She made no attempt at introducing herself or welcoming us it was simply "fill this in. Are you paying by card or cash?" She quickly left to get the card machine then mumbled a I'll show you to your room.
We were informed breakfast was between 8.45 and 9.30 which was fine with us. Then she left.
The room was smaller than we were used to. The bathroom was nothing more than a homemade wardrobe with a sliding door that kept coming away at the bottom. The shower was tiny with a number of cracked tiles. The water had to be run for at least 10 minutes to get any hot water. The room was really hot especially at night with only a small desk fan to help cool us down.
When booking I informed them that my husband was lactose intolerant and that I was vegetarian. So at breakfast I was surprised that there had been no milk alternative such as soya milk or butter replacement at all offered. When I asked for a vegetarian breakfast I was told that I could have a vegetarian sausage if they had one!!!!
The breakfast was nothing special at all tinned fruit, cereals of some sort in tubberware containers. For a change we asked for scrambled eggs on toast only to find it had been cooked in the microwave and contained shell!!!
The only redeeming feature of this hotel is the distance to the town center and the beach.
Would not stay again.

It was fine very basic. But it was a stop gap back home. Didn't realise there was a bar below. The room was clean and tidy just very warm. Parking was fine. It's fine for a few nights. Friendly people

What a hell hole! I checked us into this hovel for the scooter rally weekend and didn't bother staying. The hotel needs a damn good clean, and the owners need urgent training in basic hygiene.

First issue. Stained bedding, stained mattress, no mattress topper and a tiny bed, it wasn't a double, it wasn't even a queen, it was an oversized single.. there was no way I was sleeping on other peoples sweat stained pillows, sheets and mattress.

Then we have the pathetic, dark, mouldy bathroom and total lack of ironing facilities in the room. If you want use of an iron you have to do it in the communal lounge.

Mis-sold, dirty, unhygienic hell hole.. just wrong, on so many levels. The place is a health hazard.
