Booked this hotel at the last minute after reading a few reviews on here. The hotel itself is fairly basic but was very clean and within a few yards of the beach.
We didn't eat or drink here so I can't comment on that. The room we had was a twin on the 3rd floor. There's one lift in the hotel and we never waited long for it.
The room, for what we paid, was more than adequate. The bedding wasn't the most comfy but then again for the price it was fine. The shower and toilet area was spotless. There was also plenty of hangers in the wardrobe. There were no ironing facilities within the room but you could get these at the reception. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There are only 7 car park spaces and are on first come first served basis. There is however a car park directly opposite the hotel which cost £1 per hour and free between 6pm - 8 am. The room walls were not that thick so we did hear a bit of noise at night with people coming and going. One thing I should point out is that the hotel caters for a lot of elderly visitors. This is in no way a criticism just some information for younger people who might be expecting a different atmosphere.
The hotel itself is in a very central location. If you come out of the hotel and turn right you will find plenty of bars & tea rooms. The harbour is about a ten minute walk in the same direction.
We only stopped at this hotel for 2 nights but I would definitely return.
