Had 7 nights there, hotel is basic, clean, room well serviced. Room was small but adequate, staff very helpful.No drawers in room for storage but shelves in the built in wardrobe.
Restaurant evening opening was from 19:30 to 21:30, food was fine, breakfast was continental don't expect much in the way of hot foods but what was served was OK.
The location and transport were not as expected, the hotel is great for the beach (Beaches really good) but the hotel is approx. 1.12 miles from the town centre (I think in a straight line as I didn't measure it and by foot seemed more) so for anyone with problems walking its not ideal for getting to the town centre itself. There is bus into the town (No.1) which has a stop about 10 minutes walk from the hotel, this is a regular service which works well once times and stops have been worked out. There is also a "tourist train" which goes into the town centre and stops about 200 metres from the hotel but its times were erratic so we just had to hang about till it appeared, trying to get public transport times/routes virtually impossible, hotel staff did try and help but there were no timetables/route guides.
The area round the hotel is naturally quiet with plenty of small shops nearby but during our stay end of September/beginning of October a large proportion of shops and hotels were closed early for the winter due to the shortage of tourists, so what was intended as a quiet holiday was a very, very quiet holiday.
