Room is in need of a upgrade .price was high for the standard of room.Breakfast was good. But did not like the fact that other guest brought dog into eating area and had it on his lap feeding him. I know this hotel allows pets but should not be let in where food is being served.

"I was booked into the last double room which was lovely. So I guess the other rooms were just as good or better"
"Ask for a sea view"
"Both rooms had great views of the sea. But both need updating. Furnishings old and tired . Not worth the price we were charged"
