We loved this hotel and would stay there again. We had a very nice room overlooking the beautiful beach. The rooms are a little dated but still very nice and roomy. Our stay included breakfast which was also very nice. Staff was friendly and efficient.

We don’t have a car when there but I think there is a charge for parking. Please be aware that parking is away from hotel up a small side street

We had no problem with that. We had a suite, but the sitting room faced the street. Our bedroom was in the back, facing an alley. No noise problem.

Hi, the beach is public and i recall seeing some places along the beach in front of the hotel that appeared to be storage houses for beach stuff. if you will click on the google map at the right top of this page, then click on satellite, the photo shows a lot of beach umbrellas/cabanas so someone is offering them. i don't think there was any food/drink right on the beach but we were there before summer season. i bet there will plenty of options to buy some pricey food and drink !

"Ask for a view of the water...although there is a bit of traffic noise."
"Room 206 was on the first floor with direct sea views and along to the harbour"
"Ask for a balcony."
"Sea view a must!"
"Here is a car park tip: the city offers public parking which is a cheaper option than the hotel's parking."
