Great location, hotel is a little tired. Joy was very nice and run a quiet hotel. street parking and I was lucky and got one just outside. No breakfast, but provides tea and coffee. I think it was a good price and I would stay here again. Wi Fi was spotty.

We spent 2 nights at Joy's accommodation and it catered for our needs perfectly. We felt so chilled out there and it was like a home from home experience..it was quirky, and had a lovely decking area if you want to sit and have a smoke, or to soak up some rays..

The Charge is € 30 per person per night, for 2 persons it is € 60. All your comments are misleading and inappropriate. The room had a private bathroom, but it was not en-suite. The booking description clearly states breakfast is not included. You were obviously looking for a few specks of dust to give more impact to your comments because you did not read the descriptions before booking the room..
