Four of us went on a short break to this hotel. What set it apart was the lovely friendly staff. It was a little like staying with friends.
Smooth check in, great outdoor pool and nice indoor fitness center. The hotel is undergoing some loving care and refurbishment so be aware of this, but I would not hesitate to reccomend it.
Dont expect the ritz, this is an old fashioned gem of a building with creaky floors and a much lived in feel.
Its really close to the sea front, and about a 15 minute walk from the town center.
My only issue was breakfast which I think could have been a little more organized and run later than 9.30 on a weekend.
