The room carpet was dirty and the sliding doors out to the patio were chipped... More

We stayed on the ground floor with a terrace which was very nice as we were on the quiet side of the hotel so you were not disturbed. The pool is... More

We walked 15 minutes here each day because it was so good! The hotel grounds are beautiful and immaculately clean with great staff. The pool bar is... More

We picked this hotel for the quiet resort, within reach of somewhere busier, but not remote and the location, on the beach. The hotel is modern but still small and friendly. It's generally well maintained (TBH, only criticism would be hallway carpets need replacing due to a small area that has holes, I would prefer a tiled floor in the... More

Ideal place for couples without children. Clean, quite, good service. Close both to the sea and to the town centre, but not noisy. Very good food. We likes our festive Friday supper very much - served on the beach.
