We stayed in one of the best rooms in the place. A great view of the beach/bay and at night we could hear the tide gently lapping the beach in front of us. The road between the hotel and beach is quiet and reserved car parking within 5 minutes walk was a bargain in price.
Mind you the picture window meant the heat builds up so one option is to keep the curtains drawn when out of the room. Bathroom was a bit poky and smelt but that is because there was carpet in the bathroom! Take it out.
Food simple but well presented, there are healthy options, and the service in the restaurant, reception and rooms was friendly and caring.
No phone in the rooms so take your mobile. Yes there is some limited entertainment in the evening but the esplanade is right outside so enjoy promenading.
Fair value for a 2* hotel. The staff did many kindnesses for the old folk around, accommodated the families and it was a pleasant stay.
Rooms not facing the sea had narrow windows and there are smaller rooms so beware. You get what you pay for.
There is a small bar billiards table in the main lounge but a full size snooker table near the small swimming pool (heated) and jacuzzi. Just book at reception. Modest charges except the jacuzzi was free of charge from 5 to 7pm.
