This not an International anonymous type Hotel, thank goodness, but a reasonable and solid place.
Arriving and entering the hotel we were quite happy with what we saw and the way we were received, as our room was some distance away our bags were quickly taken by a very pleasant and helpful young man. The room was at the end of the Hotel but it was an adventure to find our way back to reception and better on the way back.
Having travelled quite away and after perusing the menu we decided to book to stay for dinner, after a rest and a couple of drinks we entered the dining room to be greeted well and shown to an very acceptable table. By this time the room was quite busy with a party and others who seemed happy and contented and gave the room a little buzz. Starters were ordered and a bottle of decent wine (perhaps a bit expensive for what it was ... but so !!!) these came nicely and attractively served, so followed the main which considering the amount of people there showed some style and individual attention by the chef's.
Good room overlooking the sea with large bed, sofa, table and chairs a decent bathroom with his and hers basins ... clean and well equipped.
Breakfast is served for several hours giving everyone a choice of "up and at it" or the lazy ones to chill out. Excellent choice of cold starters or cereals and followed by a good choice of hot "full English" excellent quality and quantity to satisfy the most greedy. We should not leave this room without commenting on the most attractive and excellent staff who go out of their way to help and please.
You could be bored with reading pernickety whinges about decor or items on the breakfast severy but all In all this is a solid excellent hotel for a few days away, or even more.
