“Nice proprietor, decent food, typical converted rooms. Been there 3 times so far, no complaints.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2009

I had no problems with urine smells, and would guess that the person who did had an unfortunately timed stay. Someone or something must have had at least one 'accident'.

The rooms are typical of converted old houses, in other words there's a shortage of sockets, the showers in our rooms were always in the bedroom, rather than in a bathroom, but these are normal problems with old houses that have been converted, or even updated. Each time there were no problems with the tv, the kettle, the toilet, and only minor problems with the shower one time because it wouldn't stay in the holder properly unless I put an elastic band on it. The beds each time were fine.

If you want to stay somewhere cheap this is fine, but if you want all the mod cons then go to a more expensive hotel.

And our breakfasts were always cooked freshly once we arrived in the dining area, plus there was always a good selection of cereals while we were waiting.

Stayed for one night, was not impressed. The hallways as we ascended up the stairs to the top floor smelt strongly of urine and unfortunately so did the bedroom to an extent, especially the bathroom. The bathmat had obviously not been washed for quite a few months. The beds were uncomfortable, springs digging into the back, and the fittings, furniture and soft furnishings were old, shabby, dirty and unco-ordinated.

Breakfast was ok but microwaved, the only positive point I could state was the location - quite central a few minutes walk from central promenade and beach.
