Stayed here as a family of 4, we chose this hotel as it had a swimming pool and we thought this would be good for the children - pool was clean but rather cold Bbbrrrr!
Rooms were spotless, warm (and I am fussy) and the beds were very comfortable.
What lets this hotel down is that it appears nothing has been updated in years - it is like going on holiday to your Grans house. The entrance hall/seating area really is very dated and first impressions are so very important! The breakfast too was, sadly, a far cry from the likes of that offered generally as standard nowadays.
Staff were friendly and polite but a little unprofessional-looking? - one of the waiters was in smart white shirt/black trousers but then bright blue trainers?? odd!
I think this has the potential to be a great little hotel but needs the owners to invest and bring it up to date - there are hundreds of hotels etc to chose from on the Island and at the moment, the way I see it is there is not a lot to make you chose this hotel over the others.
