This is a great place but a posh hotel it isn't and if you have any concerns read the reviews here and they will provide you will all the information you need to make the right decision for you.
Lets start with the less excellent bits:
Main issue is that it's a bit noisy at night. Not because the guests are particularly noisy - actually, the guests average 50+ and tend to be early to sleep/up at 7am type folks!
But the walls and floors are quite thin and you can hear a lot of everything that's going on!
Fluffy is a light sleeper and while he has worn ear plugs every night the charms of this place compensate and it's not been that bad, so let's keep this in perspective.
The second issue is about the rooms. I would disagree with previous recent comments that it's a bit worn. Actually, i think they have recently refurbished but they did it in a really old fashioned style! Lots of nets and greens!
But importantly: everything is spotlessly clean and the housekeepers and cleaners have done a brilliant job every day.
But this place is not minimalist or trendy. At all.
Breakfast is limited but we ate there once and went into Ptown the rest of the time.
Now the good bits.
The best bit is the location. It's near to the centre and on the right/better side of town but it is one of very, very few places in Ptown to be right / directly on the beach.
A little more detail on this..... we are in the bay side block - there is another block over the road on the land side and this does not have direct beach access or even a view of the beach. So book the right block!
We are on the beach. The big sliding door/window means I can see a panoramic view out for miles. I am 5 metres from the surf. Walk down the staircase and I am on the beach. Sit on the balcony and you are facing the sea. You can't get much closer! It's brilliant.
The staff are really friendly too.
It's very, very dog friendly - which is cool for me but might worry some.
There is a massive, free car park out the back which is very convenient.
The staff and the fellow guests are gay friendly.
So, all in all, you can stay somewhere cooler and trendier in terms of decor, but you'll probably be a block or two back from the sea or in the town and never see the sea from your posh room. And that is not cool at all. I'd much rather have this place!
