I cannot understand the negative reviews about this hotel, what more do some people want?
We were greeted by our friendly host, the check in was smooth and once the financial side of things had been taken care of, we were shown to our rooms. I say rooms but these were suites. The size of them meant you could easily fit up to eight people in them without tempers getting frayed.
The bedding was spotless and the beds themselves must've been orthopaedic because it felt like sleeping in the arms of an angel. The decor was tasteful and understated and the fixtures were all that were required for our stay.
The bathrooms whilst smallish were clean and adequate and the shower was like having a massage from a Turkish rugby player.
Ok so there were no tea or coffee making facilities but it was possible to get beverages downstairs in the bar area. I was with a small group of friends and we particularly enjoyed the cocktails and trendy bottled lagers available there!
The breakfast was only slightly disappointing in that they do not offer a cooked option, however the continental option was fine with the exotic cheese and meat, as much bread, cereal and yoghurt as required and freshly poured orange. All you need after a night out! The location of the hotel was perfect being halfway between town and the sea and only a short walk to either for a healthy person.
We had been concerned that there may be some large groups of stag parties being noisy and intimidating, however we found this not to be the case and in fact we were probably more noisy than anyone else.
In short for the price, why not. It's uphill from the town so elderly beware and I don't think there are many double rooms so perhaps not for the couples. Also there are a lot of stairs so maybe not for young families, but anyone else why not.
