The best thing about this place is the location. It is situated within easy walking distance of everything including the Marina, the main bars in town (including the Iron House, Courty and Central Hotel) and the beach. The room (1 bed apartment) was large and comfortable.
The downsides have been mentioned elsewhere namely small pool, extra charge for room cleaning, scarcity of hotel staff and potential noise from the bars if your room faces out into the main street, although the noise was not that bad.
If looking for a self catered break without being trapped into using expensive hotel facilities, this is a good spot to look at.
