We stayed here over a year ago. The area is fabulous but our stay at this place was dreadful. We booked last minute directly and were shocked at the price but chose to stay as nowhere else available in the area. At first the place seemed welcoming but were then shown to our annex room which was freezing cold. The furnishings were very cheap,mismatched and old fashioned - but not in a good way. We went for an afternoon walk on the beach - heavenly. Back in our room it was was still freezing so we asked for the heating to be looked at. We were told that there was no-one around to deal with it. I ended up having a bath to try and warm up. We found a small heater that was fairly useless. In the evening before going for dinner in the hotel we again asked for someone to check the heating but were told there was nothing wrong with it. We even went back into our room with the owner to prove that the radiators were barely warm but the owner swore blind that they were fine! We couldn't believe how weird this was, very faulty towers. The food was very mediocre and overpriced. Yes the breakfast was filling if you like lumpy porridge. Despite all this the employed staff were friendly, amazing considering the owners attidtude. When we checked out we did say tto the owner that we would be posting a poor review and he went bonkers with us, harldy likely to change our mind. It took me ages to post this review but I really want people to know that if they are visting this beautiful place this is not the place to stay. Freinds have since recommended a pub that is half way up the hill overlooking the bay - wish we'd known earlier.
