The hotel is set in a beautiful setting. Unfortunately this is not a 10 minute walk from the centre of town(as stated) but closer to 30 minutes. There are no sign posts from either the road or the coastal route and no lighting if coming back after dark. Rooms are simple, but clean. The problem for older guests is that the bed is a mattress in the centre of a concrete plinth, about 8inches deep and there is a considerable space between the mattress and the edge of the plinth. This makes getting in and out difficult and could lead to tripping at night as it is difficult to reach the light switch from the mattress. All forms of seating are flimsy and sparse, including the frail deck chairs. On the positive side, it is beautifully quiet at night, ensuring a good sleep.
